Health system lags in chronic pain treatment
remember that back pain is common but self-limiting in most cases. However, please see a doctor if there are any “red flag” signs which may suggest a more serious cause for the back pain. Exercise and ergonomic adjustments to activity may help prevent recurrences of back pain.
Recently, the Association of Spondyloarthritis International Society (ASAS) has developed more inclusive criteria that allow for the recognition of patients suffering from an axial spondyloarthritis (SpA) at every stage of the disease, even in the presence of normal radiographs.
