Educating Patients about Behavioral Interventions and Exercises for Musculoskeletal Lower Back Pain
Low back pain (LBP) is a common problem which affects all genders and most ages. It results in considerable direct and indirect costs, and these costs are financial, workforce and social. The majority of lower back pain occurs due to a musculoskeletal etiology and often presents to the primary care physician. We worked with local physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and athletic trainers to develop exercises and behavioral modifications that patients can do to improve lower back pain symptoms.
