Low back pain responsible for more disability worldwide than any other condition
Low back pain responsible for more disability worldwide than any other condition (March 24, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Australia - According to research published in the Annals of Rheumatic Disease, low back pain is responsible for more disability worldwide than any other condition. Researchers studied data in the Global Burden of Disease 2010 study, which examined disability in nearly 190 countries. They also examined 117 studies and looked at the prevalence, incidence, remission, duration, and risk of death associated with low back pain. Results showed that of the nearly 300 conditions in the Global Burden of Disease study, low back pain ranked at the top in terms of lost years due to disability--and ranked as the top contributor to disability in 12 of 21 world regions.
