Back pain patients should see Physiotherapists within 14 days

New research focusing on the clinical and economic benefits of Physiotherapy treatment found that patients with low back pain should receive Physiotherapy within 14 days. The study from The University of Utah found that if patients were seen by a Physiotherapist within 14 days of low back pain onset they had fewer overall care costs and fewer recurring visits. The research also found that patients referred within this time were also half as likely to need surgery or steroid injections.
