Webinar 2: The 10% Club: Endometriosis Matters in Low Back Pain (LBP)
Endometriosis is one of the most widespread gynecological disorders since 10% of all fertile women have this condition.
The most common symptoms of endometriosis are painful periods, pain with intercourse and low back pain that worsens during menses. Hence, endo is commonly related to LBP and is often mistaken for an MSK problem.
Women presenting with endometriosis and LBP can be better served by being alert to the symptomology of endo and by using sensitivity when taking their history.
This webinar will help you screen for endometriosis with your LBP patients and address these women from a biopsychosocial approach.
