Talking therapy shows promise for people with chronic low back pain

New research from Royal Holloway, University of London has found that a new form of talking therapy is a credible and promising treatment for people with chronic low back pain who are also suffering from related psychological stress.

Professor Tamar Pincus from the Department of Psychology also found that patients preferred a combination of talking therapy and physiotherapy to address both the psychological and physical aspects of their back pain.

Low back pain is one of the most common and costly health problems in the UK and research is starting to reveal the important role that psychological factors play in managing it.
