In spite of great effort, low back pain (LBP) remains a significant burden on society and one of the most common reasons to see a primary care provider.
In 1987, the Quebec Taskforce noted, "Distinct patterns of reliable clinical findings are the only logical basis for back pain categorization and subsequent treatment."
Back dominant pain is either intensified by flexion or is not aggravated by bending forward.
Leg dominant pain suggests direct nerve root involvement: radicular, not referred symptoms.
With this special issue of the Journal of Current Clinical Care we aim to provide community healthcare professionals with practical clinical insight and support in managing patients with back pain.
From time-to-time we select a topic and present the information and facts in an exciting and visually informative format.
