What will this session cover?

Low back pain causes more disability than any other condition, affecting 1 in 10 people and becoming more common with increasing age.  In the UK, it is estimated that low back pain is responsible for 37% of all chronic pain in men and 44% in women. As many as 40% of people will experience sciatica at some point in their lives.

This webinar will focus on the 2016 NICE guidelines for back pain and sciatica, in particular, the practical implementation of the guidelines in daily clinical practice.
