I also could not find statistics on lower back injury on the CDC website. This is their statistics tool: http://www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars/index.html However, there is nothing specifically stated as lower back injury among their injury statistics. You can compile data based on how the injury was aquired, though. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has some basic facts on back pain as it relates to job performance. I also found information at Mayo.edu (found on the Nursing Libguide) by searching "low back injury." The Nursing LibGuide also contains this site under the websites tab: http://health.nih.gov/ This has information as well. The Advanced Nursing Research LibGuide has a page of statistics databases, where you also may find what you need. As a last resort, the CDC has contact information on their website where you may call them with questions.
