Ooh! My Aching Back!

It is estimated that more than 80% of Americans will experience an episode of low back pain at some time in their lives, with total annual costs estimated at $100 billion. What are some important questions to ask patients regarding their low back pain? Are there any red flag symptoms that patients may have which would alert us to a potentially serious cause for their back pain? Today we are joined by Dr. Edward Laskowski, a Mayo Clinic Physician and Professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Laskowski is also a co-course director for the 28th Annual Mayo Clinic Symposium on Sports Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota, November 9th and 10th, 2018. For more information, visit ce.mayo.edu.
