Standardized Measurement of Recovery From Nonspecific Back Pain
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,

Hush JM et al. – The results were synthesized to inform the recommendation that researchers consider adopting 2 instruments as standardized measures of recovery from nonspecific low back pain (LBP), as an adjunct to the existing core set of LBP outcome measures. These instruments are an 11–point Global Back Recovery Scale, for a simple measure of global recovery, and the Patient–Generated Index of Quality of Lifeā€“Back Pain, to evaluate specific relevant dimensions of recovery. This recommendation has majority endorsement by members of the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council Acute Low Back Pain Review Group.
