LOWER BACK PAIN IS A MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDER AFFECTING 40% OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES.
Lower back pain is a musculoskeletal disorder affecting 40% of people worldwide at some point in their lives. Lower back pain (often abbreviated as LBP) may be classified by duration as acute (generally pain lasting less than six weeks), sub-chronic (six to 12 weeks), or chronic (more than 12 weeks). The condition may be further classified by the underlying cause as either mechanical, non-mechanical, or referred pain. For most episodes of LBP, a specific underlying cause is never identified or even sought, and the pain is attributed generally to mechanical problems such as muscle strain or joint sprain. The management of LBP typically includes the use of a multidisciplinary approach for resolving pain. The solutions may include physical therapy, acupuncture, surgical intervention, medication or other novel treatment options. Symptoms of LBP can be immediately alleviated and then treated for permanent relief.
