According to the Global Burden of Disease report, low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. In Canada it is one of the most common reasons for missing work and the second most common reason for visits to the doctor. Most cases of back pain are entirely treatable with physiotherapy and are not linked to serious conditions. We tend to think of back pain as being caused by serious accidents or sports injuries, but it can be sparked by the simplest of movements such as pulling a sheet over the corners of a bed or bending to pick up a toy from the floor. Left untreated, it can seriously impact a person’s quality of life and lead to chronic conditions.
