Accessible to all health care professionals, this text provides a guide to understanding and managing back pain and is one of the premier examples of a biopsychosocial approach to medicine. The content challenges unsubstantiated beliefs regarding the best way to treat and manage back pain and presents an interdisciplinary debate on the subject. In a society where patients are demanding more effective approaches to their problems, this resource offers a radical rethink, a necessary step to achieving a more effective method of treatment. The unorthodox spirit of this material places this book at the center of the revolution taking place in the back pain area.

  • Gordon Waddell is the world authority on the topic of the back pain revolution.
  • The content addresses huge problems of concern to many disciplines and governments.
  • The unbiased, open-minded view looks at the issues and the evidence and invites the readers to consider, debate, and agree on the best course of action.
  • Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the problem offers both interventionist and conservative approaches to treatment, psychosocial issues, economic factors, patient education, and prevention.


  • A new chapter on Occupational Health Guidelines keeps the reader up-to-date.
  • New information allows the book to expand on the insights of the previous edition, which was considered a classic text.
  • More social and work-related research and material provides information on these important issues.
  • Updated guidelines and references make this resource one of the best for current practice.
  • The new illustrations, graphs, tables, and education handouts present Waddell's theory in a fresh, new way that aids in the reader's understanding.

About the Author:

Gordon Waddell, DSc, MD, FRCS, Orthopedic Surgeon, Glasgow

Review:

Chiropractic Journal of Australia, December 2004
"Waddell's biopsychosocial model provides a most appropriate context in which clinicians of all hues may best address the problem. There is a more empathetic view with the patients's perspective. This second edition is a nice follow-up."
