Low back pain is a considerable health problem in all developed countries and is most commonly treated in primary healthcare settings. It is usually defined as pain, muscle tension, or stiffness localised below the costal margin and above the inferior gluteal folds, with or without leg pain (sciatica). The most important symptoms of non-specific low back pain are pain and disability.
Chronic low back pain (lasting longer than 3 months) represents the second leading cause of disability worldwide being a major welfare and economic problem.
