Lancet publication: low back pain

Speaking today, ECU president Øystein Ogre welcomed the Lancet publication of research papers on low back pain as offering a game-changing opportunity for health care systems to deal effectively with the number one cause of disability worldwide. Non-invasive treatment by highly trained manual therapists such as chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists reduces the load on overworked general practitioners and combats the opioid epidemic. Leading author of one of the papers, Jan Hartvigsen, will be building on the arguments in his unmissable talk at the ECU convention in Budapest in late May in a session titled  ‘Ageing Need Not Be a Pain.’
