AbstractIntroductionLow back pain (LBP) poses a significant burden of disease worldwide, and identifying safe and effective non-pharmacologic treatment options for LBP is a research priority. The aim of this study was to pilot a clinical trial of a portable pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy device for subjects with mixed duration non-specific LBP.MethodsThis work was a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, parallel-group study conducted at a chiropractic school outpatient clinic. The primary end point was functional capacity measured by the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) at baseline, 6  weeks, and 12&n...

Abstract Among chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients, workers' compensation is associated with longer term prescription opioid analgesic use (OAU). The aim was to study the association between receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and course of OAU. This prospective cohort study utilized data from primary care patients diagnosed with non-cancer CLBP. The outcomes were morphine equivalent dose (MED) - categorized as no OAU, 1-50mg MED, or>50mg MED - and change in MED over time using mixed multinomial logistic regression models. Covariates included sociodemographics, pain severity, pain m...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate the prevalence of and factors associated with dysfunctional low back pain (LBP) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).MethodsThis cross-sectional study included 1276 RA outpatients from two hospitals. The Roland –Morris Disability Questionnaire was used to address the functional–dysfunctional state criterion. Clinical variables, such as medical status, disease activity, bone mineral density, and spinopelvic alignment parameters, were compared between patients with and without dysfunctional LBP.ResultsMean age and disease duration were 64.6 and 13.4  years, respectively; t...
