Chronic low back pain is common in primary care, and there is no doubt that some of its manifestations are demoralizing and dispiriting for the GP.1 Sufferers often present without identifiable organic pathology, and their condition appears intractable. Here we suggest that GPs' own ideas about the consultation and the moral nature of the doctor–patient relationship in general practice may themselves go some way towards constructing this ‘intractable’ state. Our objective is to reflect on the possibility that current ideas about good clinical practice might themselves be iatrogenic.

Abstract

Chronic low back pain is common in primary care, and there is no doubt that some of its manifestations are demoralizing and dispiriting for the GP.1 Sufferers often present without identifiable organic pathology, and their condition appears intractable. Here we suggest that GPs' own ideas about the consultation and the moral nature of the doctor–patient relationship in general practice may themselves go some way towards constructing this ‘intractable’ state. Our objective is to reflect on the possibility that current ideas about good clinical practice might themselves be iatrogenic.
