Living with back pain
It is also the third most common reason for visits to the doctor's office.
LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – If you struggle with back pain in your life, you are not alone.
Worldwide, back pain is the single leading cause of disability.
It is also the third most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office.
Pain in the back prevents people from working or engaging in everyday activities.
While back pain can be caused by serious conditions like inflammatory arthritis, it is much more common for people to experience pain from everyday stress.
“In general things that help your back stay healthy are going to be the things that keep you healthy in general,” said Dr. Stephen Stacey, the Director of Osteopathic Education at Mayo Clinic Health System.
Most people with low back pain recover, however it is common for the pain to start up again.
