Analysis of individuals’ perspectives on triggers for low back pain flares

Takeaway

  • Participants of an online survey of triggers of low back pain (LBP) flares more often considered biomedical factors to be most important compared to non-biomedical factors.

Why this matters

  • Current consensus of managing LBP flares suggests reduced focus on biomedical triggers, however, as patients consider these most important, it is important to establish patient views when discussing management strategies.
