Optimizing the Use of Low Back Pain and Spine Condition-Related Interventions and Procedures

Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common forms of musculoskeletal pain in mid-age adults, with episodic and recurrent pain that can span over the entire life. LBP is a major public health problem worldwide because of its prevalence, associated temporary or permanent disability, and the extensive use of healthcare services by patients. This report aims to identify the appropriate/inappropriate treatment interventions used for LBP/spine-related conditions and to determine what are effective strategies for bringing about changes in clinical practice in order to deliver optimal quality care to patients.
