  Title Industrial back pain and recovery time
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1984 Mar;28(1):205–208
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

A retrospective longitudinal non randomized pilot study of 79 selected patient files was analysed in regards to industrial low back pain and recovery time. The files are from a multidisciplinary industrial clinic dealing with occupationally injured workers. The patients in the study were all males, between the ages of 17 and 63 years and all presented with post-traumatic low back pain. An attempt was made to see if the return of the injured worker to the workplace could be predicted. Manipulation was the main approach in the treatment of low back pain. Results of the study show that approximately 10 treatments were required to return the patient to work, within the parameters of industrially related post-traumatic low back pain, without radiation and without psychological overlay. This retrospective study serves to identify the lack of guidelines in selecting appropriate therapy modes and calls for a subsequent prospective evaluation.
