  • A  lecture on the care and treatment of low back pain

  • Low back pain is extremely common and infrequently has serious underlying pathology

  • A small, but significant, percentage of people affected by back pain develop a chronic problem with associated disability

  • Appropriate early diagnosis and management reduces disability

  • The evidence for effectiveness of injection therapies is limited, but selected patients may benefit from appropriate interventions

  • Although total resolution of pain is often not possible, a key aim of management is to avoid chronicity and encourage effective self management
