Back pain is extremely common. 60-80% of people in the UK report back pain at some time in their lives. A UK population-based cross-sectional study of people aged 25 years and older found the one-month period prevalence of low back pain to be around 30%, peaking at age 41-50 years. The one-year prevalence of chronic low back pain is about 1% [1].
