Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the United States, back pain has become a medical epidemic whose prevalence is increasing. The prevalence of neck and back pain is estimated to be 54%-80%. All types of neck pain have an estimated yearly prevalence of 12.1%-71.5%, and that of back pain is 15%-45%. Such a widespread prevalence, with lack of evidence-based recommendations for treatment, has fueled the development of novel pain treatments. Currently, the field of pain management has introduced the concept of interdisciplinary care in the biopsychosocial model.
