Lower back pain is the most common chronic pain disorder, with a prevalence of around 67% of all chronic pain. In the workers compensation space it accounts for many billions of dollars in direct payouts every year, in addition to lost productivity, and of course the suffering of the client, and the negative impact on family, friends, and community. To date, no analgesic or other medication has been able to help the majority of sufferers, and neither has physical therapy (physical therapy is highly beneficial in the acute recovery phase, but once the pain has moved into the chronic phase, this is no longer the case). Likewise CBT and other approaches have failed to have any significant effect, short or long term, according to meta-analyses.

Chronic Pain Treatment Has Moved On - Don’t Let Friends or Family Get Left Behind …

 

First the Bad News, Sorry

  With 20% of the population suffering from chronic pain that isn’t responding to treatment, that means that just about every one of us knows at least 40 people who are struggling with pain on a daily basis. Incredible, isn’t it. They might not complain (or maybe they frequently do) because a lot of that pain is hidden. But whether or not they are “having a whinge”, that pain is nevertheless stopping them from getting proper sleep, stopping them from being the kind of people they want to be in their relationships, keeping them from attending all the family events that are so important to them, preventing them from taking part in their favourite sport, or even stopping them from doing a job they love. In short, they are living in a kind of daily hell.
