Royal Society of Medicine Press, 2002 - Medical - 354 pages
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for chronic disability and incapacity for work in adults of working age and is a good example of current social security problems. This book provides a comprehensive review of the scientific and social security literature and social security statistics on back pain in various EU and OECD countries. This evidence is then integrated with a modern, biopsychosocial model of pain and disability to provide a factual and theoretical background to the debate on disability and incapacity benefits.
