Paramedic care for back pain: Literature Review

Back pain is one of the most common reasons for a person to call an ambulance service, yet how ambulance services specifically manage back pain has not been described – beyond general pain management guidelines – according to searches of Australian-state and New Zealand ambulance service jurisdiction websites (between 25th January to 3rd February 2022).

2020 CARF Scholarship recipient, practicing chiropractor and PhD research candidate – Simon Vella – has recently co-published a literature review around this vitally important issue entitled ‘Paramedic care for back pain: A review of Australian and New Zealand clinical practice guidelines‘ in the Australasian Emergency Care journal.
