Injuries and disorders of the spine are a leading cause of pain, disability, and decreased productivity in the United States. For example, it is estimated that some 90 percent of individuals over age 55 have some degree of spinal arthritis. More than 6.5 million Americans are treated for some form of back pain on any given day. And 43 million people in this country have degeneration of the discs that act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae of the spine.
