What are NICE guidelines?

NICE gives advice to doctors, nurses and other staff working in health and social care. Our guidelines tell them about how to look after people with different conditions and needs.

We wrote this guideline with people who have been affected by low back pain and sciatica, and staff who treat it. All of the decisions are based on the best research available.

You can read the guideline written for healthcare professionals.
