  1. Back pain is most likely accompanied by neck pain: About 60 percent of people with back pain also have neck pain.
  2. Back and neck pain costs about 15 millions dollars a year in the United States.
  3. Approximately 50 percent of the working population experience back problems.
  4. Back pain is the second reason next to the common cold why patients visit a doctor.
  5. At some time during their life, back pain affects a little more than 80 percent of the population.
