Facts about Back Pain

  • Back pain is very common; according to a survey published in 2000 almost half the adult population of the UK (49%) report low back pain lasting for at least 24 hours at some time in the year. (1)

  • It is estimated that four out of every five adults (80%) will experience back pain at some stage in their life. (1)

  • Although in most cases back pain is nothing serious and disappears spontaneously, the sheer number of people affected makes it a very costly condition imposing a considerable burden on the individual and society.

  • Simple measures can be taken to reduce the chances of developing back pain and thereby reducing the impact of existing back pain.
