Back pain beliefs are related to the impact of low back pain in 17-year-olds

Pain education early in school can be helpful.

Quote:
Professor Peter O’Sullivan from the Curtin research team says the degree of disability by pain is influenced more by beliefs than by the degree of pain itself.
What someone believes about the cause of and future consequences of pain will have a massive influence in terms of their behavioural response,” he says.

Beliefs regarding protecting painful structures, of avoiding activity and fearing the future will have a profound impact in terms of how that person behaves.

This can have the consequence of people being less active or taking more time off work or school. Also, the interesting thing about these beliefs is that they’re not related to the level of your pain.
