New treatment for back pain, promising

 “Mind over Back-pain”?

The first effective treatment for back pain which changes how the ‘brain and back communicate’ has been developed by scientists.

The 12-week course which focuses on the nervous system rather than pain killers and manipulation leaves twice as many people pain-free as conventional treatment.

Researchers say the system, called sensorimotor re-training, changes how people think about their body in pain, process sensations from their back and how they move their back as they go about daily lives.

Good News: People who did it said they were happier, their backs felt better and they reported having a better quality of life, and improvements were still felt a year later, even while most existing treatments for back pain do not help people for long.
