Everyone has experienced some type or degree of pain. Pain is an unpleasant and highly personal experience that may be imperceptible to others, while consuming all parts of the person’s life. Pain is more than a symptom of a problem; it is a high priority problem in itself. Pain represents both physiologic and psychologic dangers to health and recovery. Severe pain is viewed as an emergency situation deserving attention and prompt professional treatment. A person in pain feels distress or suffering and seeks relief. Low back pain is an important clinical, social, economic and public health problem affecting the modern society indiscriminately. In persons under age 45, low back pain is responsible for more lost working hours than any other medical condition and represents one of the nation’s most costly health problems.
