Nearly everyone will be affected by non-specific low back pain at some time in their lives. For most, this is a short-lived episode not requiring any professional advice. However, many people do seek professional advice for low back pain. In addition to GPs, there are increasing numbers of direct-access physiotherapy services provided by primary care trusts, and a large number of private physical therapists (e.g. chiropractors, osteopaths, physiotherapists) are the first point of contact for people with low back pain. A typical GP may see one or two patients with back pain in every surgery, but for many physical therapists, treatment of this condition is a major part of their working life.
