Back Pain Choices

Back Pain Choices

The tool has been developed to provide guidance on the management of low back pain (LBP) in primary care.

It is designed to facilitate discussion with patients about low back pain management and allows you to provide them with a personalised, take-home management plan. The tool can assist primary care physicians in their communications with patients and, in particular, manage patient expectations that imaging is always a necessary step in the diagnosis and treatment of acute low back pain.
