The Economic Cost of Back Pain

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) stated that nearly 31 million workdays were lost in 2013 in the UK as a result of workers suffering from back problems, neck pain, and muscle ailments. On the flipside, minor illnesses, including the common cold or common cough, only accounted for about 27 million days lost from work.
