Triggers for Low Back Pain
This study aims to determine what triggers an episode of low back pain. To do this we have recruited 1,000 patients with acute low back pain presenting to general practitioners and physiotherapists.
These patients have told us about what they did just prior to their back pain onset, and what they did in two matched time periods when they did not experience any back pain. The information from this project will help in the design of prevention programs that could be used to decrease back pain across the community.
