Abstract

Low back pain (LBP) is defined as pain localised between the 12th rib and the inferior gluteal folds. At any moment, about 15% of adults have LBP. In the majority of the cases, LBP is a self-limiting disease and 90% of the attacks of LBP recover within 6-8 weeks. A minority of subjects with nonspecific LBP eventually develop chronic low back pain (CLBP). Despite the update of LBP treatment guidelines, the societal costs attributed to LBP are still high. The majority of costs results from lost work productivity and less from direct treatment.
