Introduction[edit | edit source]

Low back pain is defined as pain occurring below the costal margin and above the inferior gluteal folds. It is the most prevalent condition which leads to activity limitation and loss of productivity. One in two adults suffers from this condition at some point during their life. In 85% of the population, a clear pathoanatomic diagnosis is not identified and they are named as mechanical low back pain or non-specific low back pain.[1]

Postural control requires inputs from visual, vestibular and propioceptive systems.
