Diagnosis and Treatment of Low Back Pain

Posted by iskanbasal on October 15, 2007

A Joint Clinical Practice Guideline from the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society.

“Low back pain is the fifth most common reason for all physician visits in the United States…..Low back pain is also very costly: Total incremental direct health care costs attributable to low back pain in the U.S. were estimated at $26.3 billion in 1998″.

I understand the importance of the above facts about this condition. I was always interested to have a good knowledge about this condition that makes a high number of visits to GP office. Now Annals of Internal Medicine (many times recommended by Clinical cases and images blog especially for the update section of this journal) has issued a new article discussing this condition and a joint clinical practice guidelines about it. I also expect to read about in DB’s blog. DB’s on low back pain.
