PAIN COMES BACK
IT is bad news for the many people afflicted by the agony of back pain.
Whichever treatments they try — heat pads, chiropractic treatments or ergonomic chairs — only one in five can ever expect to recover.
The study from the Canadian Krembil Research Institute found only 20 per cent of sufferers had their symptoms go away.
It concludes that other experts may have got it wrong in suggesting back pain will resolve in most cases.
