Research from multiple studies performed on the employee population in the US has uncovered some disheartening data about lower back pain.

Although depression, for the most part, can be ousted through following a regimen of regular exercise, proper nutrition, social interaction and appropriate medical attention, the general public is slow to say the same about back pain.
In some unique cases, back pain can be caused from an old injury or other natural causes that are out of the person’s control.
