Did you know that most back pain is not a sign of serious spinal damage?

Low back pain can be very painful and disabling. Consequently, it was previously thought to reflect serious damage to the structures of the spine (e.g. discs, bones, ligaments etc). However it is now clear that in the vast majority of people with low back pain – even when the pain is very severe – the structure of the back is relatively normal. This means that advanced scans are not really needed and many other simple approaches can be effective.
