Back Pain

Low back pain affects up to 90% of the population at some point in their lifetime. Up to 50% of these sufferers will suffer more than one occurrence. Low back pain is not a specific disease, but is a symptom that may result from a variety of factors and conditions.

Causes

While muscle strains and lumbar sprains are the most common causes of low back pain, in up to 85% of cases no specific cause of pain can be identified, despite a thorough medical examination.  Pain arising from other organs, known as referred pain, may also be felt in the back. For instance, intra-abdominal disorders-such as appendicitis, aneurysms, kidney diseases, bladder infections, pelvic infections, and ovarian disorders, among others, can cause pain referred to the back.
