Patients with Low Back Pain should see a Physio within Two Weeks

Doctors who refer patients with low back painĀ for physiotherapy within 14 days, decrease the overall care costs and reduce recurring visits, according to a study conducted at the University of Utah. The study concluded that early physiotherapy referral halved the need for steroid injections or surgery. (Taken from Frontline, 20 June 2012, vol18, no 11)
