Abstract

Low back pain (LBP) is the most common type of pain reported by U.S. adults across all age groups and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Up to 80% of individuals will experience LBP at some point in their lives. 411 patients ages 20-98 were seen over a one-year period for LBP at Castleton Family Health Center in Rutland County, Vermont. Patients and providers both saw a benefit to having educational materials on LBP in the office.
