Diagnostic CPRs for specific subtypes of LBP

This review identifies clinical prediction rules for low back pain

Low back pain (LBP) is generally considered a somewhat heterogeneous condition, characterised by a wide range of symptoms, prognosis, and response to specific treatments. Subgrouping patients into specific diagnostic entities will likely facilitate future advances in regards to our understanding and subsequent management of LBP. The following systematic review aims to identify diagnostic clinical prediction rules (CPRs) for LBP, and to assess their readiness for clinical application.

Validation and impact analysis of the diagnostic CPRs identified in this review are warranted, particularly those tools that meet an identified unmet need of clinicians who manage patients with LBP.
