The Hidden Costs of Chronic Back Pain.

Research has shown that lower back pain is the “leading cause of activity limitation & work absence throughout much of the world.” Low back pain costs are directly linked to health care utilization, loss of work productivity & disability. In fact, healthcare costs for back pain can be quite steep. A JAMA study found that in 1 year alone, “low back & neck pain accounted for the third-highest amount” spent on healthcare in the U.S., an estimated total of $87.6 billion. This number continues to increase annually. Plus, previous medical pain management has been problematic. Although decreasing, physicians have prescribed opioids as back pain treatment. It is also quite common to refer for spinal surgery.
