Advice to athletes with back pain - get active! Seriously?

O'Sullivan, Kieran and O'Sullivan, Peter B. and Gabbett, Tim J. and O'Keeffe, Mary (2019) Advice to athletes with back pain - get active! Seriously? British Journal of Sports Medicine, 53 (6). pp. 324-325. ISSN 0306-3674

Abstract

The recent Lancet low back pain (LBP) series1–3 recommended exercise and physical activity, particularly for persistent and debilitating pain. Given a dearth of clinical trials for LBP among athletes, is encouraging activity justifiable for athletes with LBP when they are often already highly active? This editorial teases out the role of exercise and activity for LBP among athletes.
