Abstract or Summary
  • The perplexing condition of chronic pain, particularly low back pain, is the catalyst for interest in this research project. It is specifically focused on treatment trajectories of individuals experiencing chronic low back pain. The predominant interest is the utilization of alternative treatments and that of mainstream medicine (also referred to as western medicine) within Australia's medical system. Ten individuals experiencing chronic low back pain, each over the age of 18, and residing in the Sydney area, voluntarily comprise the study population. Research consisted primarily of a semi-structured, in-depth interview with each participant and a second interview of the same type with four of the ten participants. Data was analyzed, compared across the population, and revealed patterns in successful management and treatment of chronic low back pain, which includes an element of consistent exercise and mobilization, whether it be stretching or low impact strengthening and massage. While chronic low back pain deserves increased preventative measures, many individuals living with and experiencing this form of pain have discovered ways to manage, decrease, and eliminate the presence of chronic low back pain. For most of this population, this means utilizing a combination of treatments, predominantly alternative.
