Welcome to ANZBack
The Low Back Pain Research Network & 
NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence

ANZBack is a network of world leading back pain researchers, working in partnership with leading researchers from health policy/systems, health economics, data linkage, health literacy/shared decision-making, and implementation science. Our interdisciplinary team aims to produce major improvements in health outcomes for people with low back pain.

Lower back pain is the leading cause of disability burden in Australia, costing the Australian healthcare system $4.8bn annually.  It is the most common health reason forcing middle-aged Australians to retire early, consequently reducing Australia’s GDP by more than $10.5bn annually.
