A new research study from the Royal Holloway University of London has found that a new form of talking therapy is a credible and promising treatment for people with chronic low back pain. The researchers also found that patients preferred a combination of talking therapy and physiotherapy to address both the psychological and physical aspects of their back pain.

Since low back pain is one of the most common and costly health problems in the UK (and the US), doing this sort of alternative research is crucial and plays an important role in curing it. Here that role is that psychological factors play in managing back pain.

Now, a new treatment that uses contextual cognitive behavioural therapy is particularly looking promising, as it focuses on accepting pain that cannot be cured, and instead, learning to live life to the fullest despite the pain. To do that, researchers are saying that contextual cognitive behavioural therapy helps, and compared it to pysiotherapy in 89 patients with low back pain.
