When disease is measured in terms of lives lived with disability1 low back pain (LBP) is the health condition that carries the greatest burden worldwide with the 1-year recurrence rates reported in the literature ranging from 25-80%.
As Physiotherapists working in private practice or hospital orthopaedics, treatment strategies for back pain are our daily challenge, however clear guidelines and practical treatment solutions are hard to find in the huge volume and varied findings of research.
The aim of this presentation is to discuss some of the latest research into back pain and its recurrence. What strategies does the current body of research tell us works with back pain, what don’t work and key issues to tackle in rehabilitation for long term results?
The objective of this webinar is to provide the clinician evidence based and practical strategies that can be incorporated into back pain rehabilitation to optimise outcomes and maximise function.
