A physiotherapist, Dr. Charles Ehirim has said eight out of every 10 adults suffer from back pain.
Ehirim stated this during a seminar titled “Back pain treatment: the need for a change from the old order” held in Abuja recently.
“In every ten adults, eight must be sufferers of common back pain. Presently, it affects more than 80% of the world adult population,” Ehirim said. He said common back ache is a serious problem and victims are suffering a great deal.
He however identified physiotherapy as known treatment of back pain. 
“In the past, physiotherapy was not known in the treatment of back pain. Recently the efficacy of skilful physiotherapy has brought succour to victims of chronic and debilitating back pain. Physiotherapy can give tremendous relieve,” he said.
Ehirim who identified sedentary lifestyle as one of the cause of back pain urged people to support their backs with pillows when they sit down and avoid lifting items too heavy as well as avoid sleeping on mattresses too soft.
