Abstract

Overview• Low back pain is extremely common and infrequently has serious underlying pathology
• A small, but significant, percentage of people affected by back pain develop a chronic problem with associated disability
• Appropriate early diagnosis and management reduces disability
• The evidence for effectiveness of injection therapies is limited, but selected patients may benefit from appropriate interventions
• Although total resolution of pain is often not possible, a key aim of management is to avoid chronicity and encourage effective self management
