This paper discusses specific techniques for rehabilitation of chronic low back pain through aggressive physical therapy with behavioral support. The rationale for approaching the outcome dimensions of impairments in back function and pain-related disability as opposed to chronic pain symptoms is explained. This approach requires that impairments in back function are systematically identified through the quantification of trunk flexibility, straight leg raising, back extensor strength, lifting… CONTINUE READING
