With Only 15% Of Patients Accurately Diagnosed, Time for New Approach to Back Pain

2014-12-17 07.49.35 amAs sports medicine and back pain expert Dr. Sean Wheeler will soon reveal in his new book UPRISE, it is indeed time for a new type of diagnosis in back care.

A Who's Who of experts in spinal problems and back pain, led in consultation with Sam W. Wiesel, MD, agree, as discussed in this report titled Is It Time for a New Type of Diagnosis in Back Care, from The Back Letter, a monthly newsletter published for healthcare professionals, leading with this provocative question:

Is following statement true or false? A scientific approach to the evaluation of back pain will usually lead to a precise diagnosis and specific treatment.

As anyone...in the back pain...field knows, that statement is clearly false.

The report goes on to say:

The diagnosis of back pain is an exercise in frustration. Back problems result in an accurate and valid diagnosis in only a small minority of cases - less than 15%, according to most estimates.

Read the full story in The Back Letter.

Watch for Dr. Wheeler's book UPRISE – and his breakthrough diagnosis for low back pain – in early 2015.

 

 

Your body is a finely tuned instrument. Like all finely tuned instruments, it must be properly cared for in order to play the beautiful music it was intended to play. Care for your body and use it correctly, and it will play music that is unique to you – your life song.

– Sean M. Wheeler, M.D.
