Visiting your GP to investigate your back pain problem

Your GP will be able to tell you if your problem is likely to settle or whether further investigations are necessary. He or she can also check whether there is any chance you are suffering from a more serious condition. 

Image of GPBut for up to one in 10 people suffering from back pain, it can persist and be much more troublesome. Lasting back pain is the second most common cause of long term disability and work-related absence. Even if it does not affect sufferers’ working lives it can make it harder for them to live a normal life or do the sports and activities they enjoy. It also affects their sleep and may be linked to feelings of depression.
 

The exact cause can be hard to pinpoint and many sufferers will have tried treatments such as physiotherapy or osteopathy before they are referred to a consultant.
