This evidence review focuses on evaluation and management of low back pain in adults. The American Pain Society (APS), which commissioned this report, used it to develop evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on evaluation and management of low back pain. The guidelines were developed in two stages. The first stage, published in October 2007, focused on initial (primary care) evaluation and management of low back pain, and was conducted in partnership with the American College of Physicians. The second stage, published in May 2009, focused on use of interdisciplinary rehabilitation, interventional therapies, and surgery for low back pain.
