Low back pain remains a musculoskeletal condition with an adverse societal impact. Globally, LBP is highly prevalent and a leading cause of disability.

In the United States, LBP remains one of the most common reasons to seek health care and, along with neck pain, is the medical condition associated with the highest overall costs.

An update to the 2012 Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Clinical Practice Guideline for Low Back Pain was recently released in late 2021.

Tonight, we will talk about WHY this CPG was created, HOW it was constructed, and WHAT this recent CPG recommends for the treatment of Low Back Pain.

We want to thank the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy for bringing you this broadcast.
