Lower back pain is the leading cause of disability in the world
Chronic pain in the lower back has been named as the number one cause of disability across the world.
Leading health experts state that doctors and lawmakers have not been able to address the needs of people with this condition.
At any given time, around 540 million people are affected by pain in the lower back in the world.
Pain in the lower back is usually a constant pain. It affects the quality of life and makes it difficult to carry out day-to-day tasks.
The pain can continue for months and even years if proper diagnoses and treatment is not available.
Simple physical and psychological therapies can improve the condition in most cases.
However, it has been found that most back pain patients are asked to get scans or surgery, or to rest and stop work, and prescribed powerful pain killers.
This makes the condition worse and can cause other health problems as well.
Experts have highlighted the need for better treatment plans that are free of other harmful side effects.
