What beliefs make back pain more likely to be chronic?
 
All of the following are listed as beliefs that increase the risk of chronicity:

* The belief that back pain is due to progressive pathology

* The belief that back pain is harmful or severely disabling

* The belief that avoidance of activity will help recovery

* A tendency to low mood and withdrawal from social interaction

* The expectation that passive treatments rather than active self management will help.
