Many Misbeliefs Persist About Back Pain.

Questionnaires completed by 3,724 adults revealed that many people still retain false beliefs about low back pain, which not only increases their risk for the condition but can also lower their chances for recovery. Some of these myths include the idea that imaging tests can always identify the cause of low back pain; bed rest should be the mainstay of therapy; individuals with back pain should take it easy and limit activity; back pain will get worse; and surgery is needed for disk herniation.
