Back pain is one of the most common reasons cited by patients seeking medical help, and it is a leading cause of time off work and long term disability. Causes of back pain are complex and many health care professionals devote a substantial amount of their time dealing with it. The initiating event leading to back pain is often compounded by other factors leading to maladaptive behaviour and prolongation of pain. This pocketbook will summarise the current literature on management of back pain and provide evidence-based, practical guidelines for clinicians.

This is a useful book for anyone who treats spinal patients. The authors address a large patient group who often receive multidisciplinary treatment, which therefore puts one's own field of expertise in an important, comprehensive perspective. I highly recommend the book and believe that it should be part of the standard library in the doctor's office. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
In his Foreword, Andrew Baranowski writes that the book is designed to inform and act as a brief reference for practitioners, both medical and in allied specialties working with back pain. I think that this is a far better representation. It certainly does give information on available treatments and their clinical evidence. If you are looking for information on a particular type of treatment you can find it within the book and you can consider whether that is appropriate for your individual patient... In essence, this is a book, which may usefully sit in a drawer in the consulting room of a GP or back pain therapist. * C. N. D. Edwards, for British Journal of Anaesthetics, July 2013. *
