Advancing Clinical Low Back Pain Research in Physical Therapy

Booking not required

A large number of clinical trials now exist studying interventions for back pain. While several physical therapy interventions have evidence supporting their use, effect sizes are generally small with little distinctions among active interventions. In addition, lessons learned from these trials have proven difficult to integrate into routine clinical care. Advancing the science and practice of physical therapy in low back pain over the upcoming decades will require innovative research designs including adaptive clinical trials and treatments. These issues will be discussed along with examples of ongoing research efforts.
