“A major challenge will be to stop the use of harmful practices while ensuring access to effective and affordable health care for people with low back pain.”

“Low back pain is now the number one cause of disability globally…there is a need to identify cost-effective and context-specific strategies for managing low back pain to mitigate the consequences of the current and projected future burden.”

“Despite many clinical guidelines with similar recommendations for the management of low back pain, the gap between evidence and practice is pervasive…”

”Focusing on key principles, such as the need to reduce unnecessary health care for low back pain, support people to be active and stay at work, and reform unhelpful patient clinical pathways and reimbursement models, could guide next steps..”

“No single solution will be effective, and a collective, global effort will take time, determination, and organisation.” Thank you to @TheLancet LowBackPain. http://www.thelancet.com/series/low-back-pain
