If you have low back pain, you are not alone. About 80 percent of adults have experienced low back pain at some point during their lifetimes. It’s the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. In fact, more than a quarter of adults have reported that they have experienced low back pain during the past three months.
