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.
