The Relationship between Back Pain and High Blood Pressure

Back pain is one of the most life-disturbing medical conditions. It disrupts the way you walk, sit, and do work, and most of all, chronic back pain can cause stress. Back pain is common in 13% of adults between the ages of 20 and 69, but does it have a link with high blood pressure? If you do not get treatment for your back pain, it may progress into severe states and possibly lead to hypertension (e.g., due to stress).
