Introduction

Sleep disturbances and disruptions in well-being are common complaints, and both can increase pain symptoms in individuals with chronic low back pain (LBP). These comorbidities are more prevalent in the midst of the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic and place greater demand on physiotherapists to offer effective treatment. This course, the fourth in a five-part series, discusses the relationship between sleep, psychological well-being and chronic LBP, as well as integrative exercises to effectively treat and empower patients to decrease their pain symptoms.

Aims

This course aims to describe the interconnection and relationship between sleep, psychological well-being and chronic LBP. It also discusses how integrative lifestyle medicine can provide effective, patient-centred, whole-person treatments to manage and improve pain.
