Non-Specific Low Back Pain Does Not Exist

Low back pain is always specific

Non-specific low back pain is defined as low back pain not attributable to a recognizable, known specific pathology.

This is of course impossible because all low back pain has a cause, indeed not always a known pathology but definitely always a cause, functional or structural.

Many patients with low back pain are too often “diagnosed” as non-specific because the therapist doesn’t find the cause.

In these cases, a non-specific treatment is given, hoping that it works.

In my book on treating patients with low back pain there is a clear strategy to determine the cause of the low back pain in all its aspects with each time an appropriate individualized treatment goal and treatment.
