Chronic Pain

Acute low back pain is a common reason for a patient to visit their primary care provider. Most back symptoms are usually self-limited. History and physical examination typically provide clues to the rare, but potentially serious causes of low back pain. The differential diagnosis will be explored and appropriate use of diagnostic testing, including x-rays, will be discussed. Participants will review current recommendations and treatment algorithms, and learn when it is appropriate to consider specialty referral.
