Back Pain — Australian Statistics

Chronic back pain is a common musculoskeletal problem that is estimated to affect almost 80% of the world’s population at some point1 and often limits daily activities.

In Australia, musculoskeletal and connective tissue problems accounted for 45% of the long term conditions reported in 2004–2005. More specifically, 15.1% of Australians reported suffering recurrent back pain and problems, neck or disc disorders in this time period2. Of this group, 1,169,500 individuals (or 39%) reported work related conditions to be the cause of their musculoskeletal condition. In addition, 936,200 cases (or 31.2%) reported in 2004–2005 resulted from injury.
