In the modern society the low back pain (LBP) is the most common cause of temporary disability with estimated life time prevalence as high as 23 –80% (Pedisic et al., 2013). LBP with radiculopathy is considered as the most unfavorable prognostic risk factor for the development of chronic pain syndrome and low quality of life (Konstantinou et al., 2013).
