I am a physiotherapist who has a research interest in exploring how coping responses for individual with chronic low back pain could impact self-management strategies post physiotherapy sessions.
Low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability and the burden is raising. Several interventions to manage LBP show promising, however NHS is still struggling with the socioeconomic effect of LBP on both individual and society. Startification patients into copers vs non-copers before treating patients in physiotherapy setting could be one solution to reduce this burden and might be a key factor tleads to successful self-management strategies.
