Low Back Pain guidelines published by Orthopaedic Section of APTA

Just published are the Low Back Pain Clinical Practice Guidelines linked to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health from the Orthopaedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.

The guidelines are VERY comprehensive and cover a broad amount of information, from pathology to psychosocial factors to some of the basic special tests you learned in PT school.


What you will NOT find...
  • No pelvic landmarks
  • No trigger points
  • No palpation for tenderness (only in the case of a spinal compression fracture)
I hope this doesn't slay too many sacred cows but if you have any doubt, or if you'd just like to read a great work by some research AND clinical physical therapists then I highly recommend these new guidelines.
