Challenging back pain myths

A key focus of the Pain-Ed team is to challenge those societal beliefs which are inaccurate, and are linked to pain and disability. These myths are often commonly believed by both healthcare professionals and members of the public. A campaign by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists in 2011 – which was chaired by one of the Pain-Ed team – challenged many of the most pervasive myths about chronic low back pain, and we have attached the leaflets form that campaign here.
