“Research has shown, say the authors in their paper, that exercise is the best thing, although many people with back pain are fearful of making it worse.
Those who do best, said Dr Stewart-Brown, are often those who not only do the recommended back exercises but also join fitness classes or take up yoga. There is some evidence that disciplines teaching awareness of the body, such as the Alexander technique and Pilates, may have some effect.
"One of the key messages is that you can't expect someone to solve your back pain for you passively," she said.”
Physiotherapy for people who suffer from mild to moderate lower back pain is a waste of time and a poor use of NHS money, according to a major study published today.
