Dr James McAuley talks ‘Pain’ on ABC radio
Almost everyone will experience at least one episode of back pain in life. This is often very painful and distressing but usually settles down within a few days or weeks. Unfortunately for a significant proportion of people, recovery is much slower and about 40% of people go on to develop chronic back pain.
For these people treatment options are limited and most treatments produce only minimal pain relief.
Dr James McAuley’s work is directed towards developing new treatment approaches to manage chronic low back pain. One approach showing considerable promise aims to prevent people from developing chronic back pain.
