Talk on lower back pain

To challenge some of the common myths and to give the public a greater understanding of how to manage lower back pain, the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists has published Challenging Back Pain Myths as part of its annual Move4Health campaign. To mark the Move 4 Health campaign Aiden Tighe, senior physiotherapist, HSE West, is holding an information session in the Newman Institute in Ballina from 7pm to 8pm on Monday May 9.

According to the Move4Health Campaign, research has shown that changing beliefs and attitudes about lower back pain reduces disability and sick leave in a cost-effective manner, with obvious advantages for the patients themselves, as well as wider society. Education about what is really occurring in back pain, when combined with physiotherapy, significantly reduces pain and disability.
