Abstract

Cervical pain and low back pain (LBP) with/without radiculopathies are the most common spinal disorders. They are the leading cause of absence from work in “developed” countries. Around 80% of adults suffer from LBP during their lifetime and 55% suffer from back pain associated with radicular syndrome [cr1]. The most common cause of LBP with classical irradiation along the nerve root course is disk herniation.
