There is a growing consensus that psychosocial factors, known as “yellow flags” play an important role at early stages of lower back pain, and clinicians should focus on assessing these factors and addressing them. Communication processes between the patient and GP can be critical in providing reassurance and explaining causes of pain. It is important that this opportunity is used to positively influence attitudes and beliefs.
