Chiropractic researchers lead call for change to low back pain management

lowbackpainThe Lancet has published a series of articles on low back pain, addressing the issues around the disorder and a call for worldwide recognition of the disability associated with the disorder, and also the removal of harmful practices. Led by Professor Rachelle Buchbinder from Monash University in Melbourne, this series comes from an international group of authors including Associate Professor Alice Kongsted and Professors Jan Hartvigsen and Chris Maher.

Jan Hartvigsen was a keynote speaker at the CAA Annual Conference in Canberra last October. The CAA Podcast featured Jan in the lead up to the conference. To listen to this Podcast (Episode 22) click here.
