• Geographic and specialty-biased inconsistency in the management of non-specific back pain is a reflection of the inadequate available evidence and a lack of service planning • Comprehensive evidence-based multidisciplinary care bundles for the treatment of back pain are in development • More emphasis will be put on patient self-management • Information should be provided about options available locally and nationally • Earlier access to pain management programmes and multidisciplinary care for back pain should be provided at a local level • With advances in basic and translational research, more personalized approach to risk stratification, disease development monitoring and treatment are likely to be considered in the future • The introduction of NICE guidelines in 2009 for the management of non-specific low back pain proved controversial; the British Pain Society recommended that they be withdrawn.
