Low Back Pain: Top 10 Facts

Jan 7, 2021

The world’s leading experts have compiled their top list of common misbeliefs and addressed them with some real world facts….

We can all take something from these…the over arching theme is that back pain is normal, it will get better and in general movement is good for us – its what we are designed to do!!

Back pain can be disabling, frustrating, stressful and impacts many aspects of people’s lives. Unfortunately almost 80% of us will experience back pain at some stage or another and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide. This can be driven by unhelpful beliefs in modern society that further compound the effects of this condition and impact recovery on individuals.

To combat this, some of the world’s leading practitioners (O’Sullivan et al 2019) have compiled some of the most common beliefs and responded with 10 facts about back pain. The more health professionals such as ourselves can incorporate these facts when treating our patients and clients the more we can gradually start to change people’s attitudes and improve outcomes.

We can all take something from these 10 facts – the over arching theme is that back pain is normal, it will get better and in general movement is good for us – its what we are designed to do!!
