New research from Australia has found that acute low back pain is not linked to weather conditions. They looked at temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind direction, and precipitation as factors which may lead to an increased likelihood of the onset of back pain.
Back pain currently affects up to 70 million American everyday, and many individuals point to the weather as a reason for why their back is "acting up". While cold, rainy weather may not inspire us to get moving and exercise, it appears as though it does not directly contribute to back pain!
