Back pain is one of the most common complaints among American adults. In fact, it has been determined that back pain causes more missed days from work than any other complaint. Nearly all American adults will deal with chronic back pain at some point in their lives, making it a very real concern.

A pinched nerve affects the lower back or neck, along the spinal cord.
