Prompt treatment can help back pain sufferers

London, Oct 19 : A new study has suggested that early preventative measures can help reduce back pain.

Experts have claimed that prompt help can spare the sufferers from their agony, the Daily Express reported.

According to the research by the Work Foundation think-tank, doctors are not taking back pain and similar conditions seriously enough because they are not life threatening, and making sure patients are fit to work is not regarded as important as other "clinical" priorities.

The report predicted that by 2030 many EU member states will see 50 percent of the population diagnosed with a musculoskeletal disorder such as back pain.

However, it said that early interventions can help reduced these rates across Europe.
