BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year fund
back pain management. Back pain is a top and widespread
cause of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common cause for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day
events of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day requirement. One
newer study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a key
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
before surgery. The better the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as an underlying issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.

surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Spinal Care Clinic encourages
walking for everyone!
