Eight out of 10 adults experience an episode of acute back pain at some point in their lifetime. Back pain is the second most common cause of missed workdays due to illness, and the most common cause of disability.
While many incidences of back pain will respond to basic treatment, more serious cases call for more sophisticated interventions. These include:
- Spinal cord tumors
- Spine cancer
- Disorders of the neck/cranial-cervical junction and degenerative conditions
