The Low Back Pain Research Update

Guaranteed – the fastest, most cost-effective way to keep up with the latest research into low back pain

Providing exceptional service means knowing about all the latest evidence, studies and discussions. It’s vital for spinal specialists to keep up to date with cutting-edge research and findings, techniques and ideas.

After all, there’s a lot of it on the internet and in the newspapers: clients might come across it, even if you haven’t!

Keeping abreast of everything that’s happening in the field of low back pain, however, can take many hours of your time every week.  Subscribing to all the journals can cost thousands of pounds.

Now – at last – there’s an answer to the problem: a digest of all the latest information and key research delivered to your inbox. No more searching. No more scouring the web and journals and articles and papers for the best and most important information.

No more expensive subscriptions for journals or buying articles at £20+ a time.

Instead, let Kieran do the leg work, and you can read the results. It’ll take you only 30 minutes a month – and you’ll be as well informed as anyone on the latest research into low back pain.

It’s only evidence-based treatment if you have access to the latest evidence

What is evidence-based medicine? It has been defined as:

“The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.” (Sackett 1996)

Having access to the latest findings and evidence is essential, but it’s often far too time-consuming and costly for busy clinicians to keep up to date with all potential developments. You may subscribe to the journals, but in truth, you only need a fraction of the information they contain. The rest is noise, through which you have to sift to find the messages relevant to your profession.

The low back pain research update allows you to stay up to date in just 30 minutes a month. Let Kieran Macphail trawl through the research and synthesise the key evidence into manageable, evidence-based chunks.

Content that matters to you and your patients – and which will improve your ability to treat lower back pain

Our update from February 2013 contained a host of articles of vital interest to physiotherapists. These included:

Conditions we treat

Chronic Pain

Long standing pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period or occurs along with a chronic health condition, such as arthritis

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Form of spinal arthritis, chiefly affecting young males, that eventually causes ankylosis of vertebral and sacro-iliac joints.


Chronic (long-lasting) disorder that causes pain and tenderness throughout the body, as well as fatigue and trouble sleeping

Chronic Fatigue

Symptoms include light sensitivity, headache, muscle and joint pain, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, and depression.

No risk, no tie-ins

The Low Back Pain Research Update costs only £6.50 a month and saves you both time and money. What’s more, your first month’s newsletter is free – and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

Focus your efforts and improve your clinical excellence

The low back pain research update means the money and time you invest in staying abreast of the literature are laser focused. Most clinicians choose not to spend valuable time in reading further in a particular area – the headline and key findings are usually enough. But when a special topic grabs your interest, you know about it in plenty of time and you can follow up and get more details.

It gives you a far more focused and precise, less “scatter-gun” approach to staying informed about the latest developments and evidence.

30 minutes or less a month – guaranteed – or Kieran buys you an article!

Kieran is adamant this will take you no more than 30 minutes a month. So sure, in fact, that if it takes you longer, he’ll buy an article for you of up to £20. There are no strings attached to this: just let us know and we’ll sort out the article for you!
