Back pain is the second most frequent chronic pain problem, just after headache, as a reason for patients to seek medical help. Suffering from back pain ranges from transient discomfort to frank incapacitation. Approximately 80% of the adult population will suffer from pain related to the lower back during their lifetime. The Agency for Health Care Policy (AHCPR) document states that 90% of patients with acute back pain are better in about one month (spontaneous recovery), but more than half who recover from a first episode of acute pain will have another episode within a few years.
