Summary:

Numerous clinical trials have investigated the effectiveness of interventions for low back pain. Despite the magnitude of research in this area, the evidence remains somewhat inconclusive for many of the more common interventions. Many researchers fail to recognize that all patients with LBP are not the same; thus, it is not reasonable to expect that all patients will benefit from identical interventions. Matching patients with interventions from which they are likely to benefit has been advocated as a method to improve the power of investigation. This module will review the evolutionary history of clinical prediction rules, discuss the methodological standards for developing CPRs, review the hierarchy of evidence for applying CPRs in clinical practice and describe the spinal manipulation and stabilization CPRs currently in use for the management of patients with LBP.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program on clinical prediction rules for low back pain is to educate and enable physical therapists to understand and use clinical prediction rules appropriately for patients with LBP. After you study the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Recognize methodological standards for establishing CPRs
  • Recall the CPRs used to select patients who are most likely to benefit from lumbar stabilization and manipulation
  • Recognize variables that may indicate a poor outcome from lumbar stabilization and manipulation
