BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year go to
back pain management. Back pain is a top and widespread
cause of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top cause for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to experience
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
workings 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 necessity. 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 improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main sign for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
described walking disability. (3) Disc Centers Of America encourages
walking for everyone!
