Hi there - "ChiroChic" - pleased to meet you!! Cost studies are presently not available on the SA scene - but you should be able to source such information from some of the major medical schemes.
Chronic low back pain frequently affects people in their prime working years and, as a result, it is the single largest cause of lost work days and lost income. It also accounts for more than 25 percent of all workers' compensation claims, with a great cost to society. Additionally, while studies show that many sufferers do not seek medical attention, chronic low back pain remains a primary reason for hospital and physician office visits.

Internationally there may be some available and a bit of internet surfing may prove beneficial Some useful Low Back Pain Websites
