According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), low back pain is the most common cause of a job-related disability.

Lower back pain is common among many Americans, both younger and older.

Poor posture, sitting for extended periods of time, and even some infections can exacerbate lower back pain.
