Author(s): Dr. Sunil Kumar Saharan and Dr. Kartikeya Sharma
Abstract: Introduction: To evaluate the utility of a questionnaire in assessment of low back pain and disability and the correlation between disability score, clinical features and imaging findings in patients with low back pain.
Methodology: Here, we included 25 consecutive patients with duration of low back pain for 1 month who were not responding to conservative OPD treatment, and also had no reason to suspect any underlying organic disease. Each patient was analyzed on the basis of history and physical examination and a base line X-ray was taken.
Results: Here, mean age of patients is 39.8 years with female predominance. According to Q-score there are 13 out of 25 patients are of modrate category, 11 in severe cateogory and rest in extreme category. We further divide these patients into 2 types i.e concavity right side and concavity left side. There are 5 patient of former category and 1 of later.
Conclusion: A back-pain questionnaire should be designed and framed according to the life style of the patient i.e. if the patient cannot read or understand the questionnaire than it should be framed in the local language and should be read by investigator. Clinical examination is also an important tool for assessment of patients especially to support and exclude destructive and compressive lesions and also neurological diseases.
