VIDEO - Back Pain: It's important to Separate Fact From Fiction


" What we know about back pain is that it's only 1% of back pain disorders that have really serious stuff - like it could be caused by a malignancy, a fracture, an inflammatory disorder, - and only around 5% of back pain is linked to a disc prolapse where there’s some kind of nerve compression. 90 - 95% of back pain disorders have no diagnosis based on scans."
