The After Effect...

Common back injuries encompass a range of issues, such as sprains and strains, herniated discs, and fractured vertebrae. The lumbar spine, a frequent source of back pain, is particularly vulnerable due to its significant flexibility and weight it supports daily. It's estimated that up to 60 to 70 percent of New Zealand's general population may experience low-back pain at some point.

Evaluating lower back pain is critical for understanding the risk factors associated with long-term disability and loss of work. It also provides a framework for assessing these risks. Early identification of individuals at risk is crucial, enabling the implementation of targeted early management strategies aimed at preventing the onset of chronic pain and disability.

Allowing pain to persist untreated only increases the potential for further degeneration. It is essential to seek medical attention promptly to prevent the escalation of symptoms and to facilitate early intervention.
