Why does my back hurt?

Back pain is one of the most common conditions seen by health care professionals in the UK. Despite enormous efforts in the world of clinical research our understanding of back pain remains relatively poor compared to many other conditions and our treatments often have only small effects.

Join Dr Cormac Ryan and explore the neurophysiology of pain in an attempt to better understand the underlying causes of back pain, why it might persist long after normal tissue healing times, and how better understanding of pain can lead to better management of back pain.
