Low Back Pain, a Common Issue

Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, says low back pain is almost the number two cause of medical office visits for patients in the United States and the prevalence incidence is increasing over time.

He points out most injuries are associated with desk and office workers, so doctors see a lot more back pain in individuals caused by sedentary lifestyle, sitting a lot without changing positions. He recommends following an exercise program every day to avoid getting injured.
