Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA September 2013
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 43 Number 3 September 2013 97 those patients at risk for chronicity. In a similar vain, Valat and colleagues have suggested that the social and occupational environment should be carefully evaluated with the goal of identifying those patients at risk.14 The increasing burden of LBP-related disability, together with its major social and economic costs, indicates a need for large prospective epidemiological studies aimed at identifying predictive factors amenable to management. The literature indicates the potential to identify those patients at risk of developing chronic LBP. There is, however, still a great deal more to be done, especially in understanding the beliefs and perceptions of those involved in the assessment and treatment of this condition. It is important to have an understanding of these factors, in order to manage LBP patients more effectively and prevent their transition to chronicity. It may also be instructive to examine the sources and content of continuing education that are available to chiropractors, general practitioners, and psychologists, in order to determine their potential contribution to prevention of chronicity in LBP.
