Back pain is a huge problem for half of all working Americans, and it’s one of the most common reasons people miss work. Back pain is second only to upper respiratory infections as the most common reason people see a doctor. And don’t buy into that old myth that back pain is just for older people. The fact is young people can suffer injuries or have a condition that results in back problems.

This is no small problem, and the numbers tell you the story. The nationwide annual tab for back pain is staggering. While studies report it’s hard to identify all the costs associated with back pain, they have identified at least $50 billion a year that Americans spend on back pain.
