Ten Low Back Pain Facts Videos

Body Logic Physiotherapists Professor Peter O’Sullivan, Dr JP Caneiro and Kevin Wernli were co-authors on a recent research article discussing lower back pain facts and treatment, published in the prestigious British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM).

They also discuss the ten lower back pain facts (and many other topics related to pain such as osteoarthritis) on the Empowered Beyond Pain podcast that they co-host.


To improve the translation of these important scientific findings, they created an infographic and have now released two videos (presented by patients) detailing the facts of lower back pain, as well as sharing stories from some of the people who have lived experience with persistent pain and sought back pain treatment.


Further to just the facts, they wanted to share some of the stories of the people who presented the facts, which gave rise to the second video, “Stories behind the facts”.


You’ll hear a lot of similarities between each patient story, like how they were in a dark world of pain, fear and worry, or how a key mindset shift from ‘damaged and vulnerable’ to ‘confident and carefree’ was important for their recovery and back pain management.
