Who it affects
Back pain can effect almost anyone, we see it in the elderly, in the young and active and in many people with other health conditions.
Did you know that 8 out of 10 people will experience some form of debilitating back pain in their lifetime? It is the single biggest cause of incapacity for people under 50 years of age, and was the 3rd leading cause of disease burden for Australians in 2011.
