NICE Guidance: Spinal Conditions

'NICE guideline on Low back pain and sciatica' (November 2016).

This final guideline has now been published on the NICE website. You can also find the supporting evidence, as well as all the stakeholder comments, table 1 and table 2, that we received during consultation and the responses to these comments. The comments were invaluable in helping us to develop and refine the guideline. An equality impact assessment has also been produced to support the guideline.

The recommendations in the guideline have been included in a NICE Pathway, which is an online tool that brings together all related NICE guidance and associated products in a set of interactive, topic-based diagrams.  There is a version of the guideline for people using services, carers and the public called ‘Information for the public’.
