THE COST OF BACK PAIN
When 26-year-old Bill, a high school teacher, was released after a ten-day stay in the hospital for back surgery, he was shocked to receive a bill for over 18,000 dollars. “My insurance company will never cover all of this,” he said. “What could I have done to prevent this expense?”
The cost of back pain is enormous, and prevention is important. This ailment has a high cost not only for individuals like Bill, but also for the nation. Many cases of back pain are not severe or long lasting, their treatment is not expensive, and job time is not lost. But when cases of back pain become severe enough to cause personal suffering and limit work, the cost of health care skyrockets. Studies estimate that the cost of back pain runs around 50 billion-75billion dollars each year. And back pain is one of the most common causes of loss of work, second only to the common cold!
With these exorbitant costs and widespread suffering, it’s important to focus on ways to control and prevent back pain. If only a small percentage of back pain could be prevented, the savings in pain and cost would still be tremendous.
