The fundamental principle of the LBP
descriptor was initially proposed by Ojala et al.
Ethnicity is a key social indicator and according to Jeffries et al (2007), the failure to collect this information when designing questionnaires on adolescent LBP
is a common oversight.
But the greater challenge for LBP
is that it is a universal bank and draws deposits from the private sector.
A review of 154 MRIs of patients presented with LBP
in this study revealed (Table 2) that majority of the patients had lumbar spine degenerative disease 88.
1 The life time prevalence of LBP
is reported to be high, affecting nearly 80% of people at some time in their adult life, and the point prevalence is ranging from 30% to 50%.
operator can be defined as a rotation invariant grayscale measure.
Results: The mean (SD) age in LBP
group and non-LBP
group were 14.
Ten participants (5 males and 5 females) were allocated to each of following three groups: "Healthy", "Distant LBP
" and "Recent LBP
", depending on whether they had never experienced an incident of LBP
, whether they had experienced non-specific LBP
between 9-12 months ago, or within the past 0-3 months, respectively.
The inclusion criteria were age [greater than or equal to] 10 years, study focus on LBP
prevalence, inclusion of both genders, and no limitation to the study design.
Patients with discogenic LBP
who underwent bipolar RFTC between October 2013 and May 2015 were enrolled in the study.
Meanwhile, the frequency of diagnostic imaging studies for LBP
has increased in recent decades, with a simultaneous shift towards higher-cost cross-sectional imaging.
1) Participants had a score of >5 on the Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ), which measures functional impairment due to LBP
