Absence of low back pain in patients followed weekly over one year with automated text messages

Chiropractic & Manual Therapies, 04/16/2012

The estimates for non–episodes during the study period and at the end of the study were very similar for participants with LBP who also had Modic changes and those with non–specific LBP. It is possible that a definition of pain–free periods is pointless in patients seeking care in the secondary care sector.
