Working Through the Pain

Lower back pain (LBP) is one of the most common causes of disability in Americans.

For Ismail Nabeel, MD, MPH, an assistant professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, LBP shouldn’t hold people back from their livelihoods.

Nabeel’s work shows the importance of informatics in helping physicians make evidence-based recommendations for when patients with LBP can return to work.

Why Informatics? So, we can help the 10-20% of working Americans with lower back pain continue working.
