Dr Kieran O’Sullivan will explore why current prevention strategies for LBP mostly do not appear to work and might even be a waste of time/money and address the issue of whether we should be trying to prevent back pain completely, or just prevent recurring disability? This talk will briefly discuss what we might be better off doing to reduce back pain, inside and outside the workplace. He will also address current concepts around advice on posture and office seating.
At the end of the session participants will have a greater understanding of the issues around prevention strategies for LBP.
