Emergency Department Visits and Inpatient Stays Related to Back Problems, 2008

Emergency Department Visits and Inpatient Stays Related to Back Problems, 2008 (PDF)

Source:  Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (HHS)

Half to three-quarters of individuals in the U.S. population experience back problems, largely defined as spondylosis, intervertebral disc disorders and other back pain, at some point during their lifetime. In 2008, back problems were among the leading all-listed reasons for emergency department (ED) visits, physician office visits and hospital outpatient visits for adults. Not only do back problems result in expensive and resource intensive medical care, but they also result in loss of functioning, reduced quality of life, and reduced productivity in the workforce.

This Statistical Brief compiles information from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on emergency department (ED) visits and hospital inpatient stays related to back problems in 2008.
