Low back pain causes highest global disability

According to a report published in online journal Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases finds out that the low back pain is the biggest cause of disability across the globe as compared to any other condition. The authors have collected there on data from the Global Burden of Disease 2010 study that have assessed the ill health and disability arising from all conditions in 187 countries - grouped into 21 regions - for 1990, 2005, and 2010. The result finds out that Low back is quite dangerous than it looked. Authors write that “With ageing populations throughout the world, but especially in low and middle income countries, the number of people living with low back pain will increase substantially over coming decades. Governments, health service and research providers and donors need to pay far greater attention to the burden that low back pain causes than what they had done previously.”
