Low back pain is one of the most common symptoms that prompts patients to seek medical care and is the leading cause of disability both in the US and worldwide. The one-year prevalence of low back pain globally is estimated to be about 38%, meaning nearly 4 in 10 people experienced an episode of back pain in the past 12 months. Pain emanating from the back can be attributed to degeneration and/or inflammation of the bony spine and its small joints (facet joints, sacroiliac joints), intervertebral discs, ligaments, paraspinal musculature, and nerves. Back pain may be axial (limited to the back and buttock area, not crossing the knee) or radicular (radiating to the leg or legs).
