Health Maintenance Care in Work-Related Low Back Pain and Its Association With Disability Recurrence
Low back pain (LBP) continues to be one of the costliest work-related injuries in the United States in terms of disability and treatment costs. New research, conducted by medical and healthcare professionals outside the chiropractic profession, compared the occurrence of repeated disability episodes across types of health care providers who treat claimants with new episodes of work-related low back pain (LBP). The overall conclusion was the use of health maintenance care provided by physical therapist or physician services was associated with a higher disability recurrence than in chiropractic services or no treatment.
