    Abstract

    In the United States, back pain is reported to occur at least once in 85% of adults below the age of 50. Nearly all of them will have at least one recurrence. It is the second most common illness-related reason given for a missed workday, and the most common cause of disability. Work-related back injury is the number one occupational hazard.
