Almost 80% of our entire population encounters at least one bout of lower back pain during their lifetime. More than 50% of Americans suffer from some type of low-grade chronic back pain. Most often x-rays and other imaging studies of the back show no clear abnormalities to explain the discomfort, and are then classified as "non-specific" back pain, and it usually resolves spontaneously without treatment this report Provides guidelines for recognition and management of this disorder, emphasizing the need to avoid overly aggressive methods of diagnosis and treatment.
