59% of people over the age of 18 report pain in a given 3 months. Of that 59%, 39% was attributed to back pain. That is an overwhelming statistic!
Studies have found the incidence of low back pain is highest around 30-40 years old, and overall prevalence increases with age until the 60-65 year age group.
