Low back pain is one of the most common, challenging, costly and controversial conditions treated by occupational medicine specialists. This session will review recent research on low back pain; demonstrate how applying a knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics can give us a deeper understanding of normal function, explain what can go wrong with these mechanisms to produce symptoms of low back pain; and show how a careful, expanded physical examination can help us formulate a more specific diagnosis and guide rational treatment.
