Abstract

"Treatment-based classification (TBC) is an approach to subgrouping patients with "nonspecific" lower back pain (LBP), focused on identifying clusters of findings from the history and clinical examination which predict a more favorable outcome with a specific treatment approach." The objective of this editorial was to provide an overview of development of TBC and its use in evaluation and management of patients with LBP from an evidence-informed perspective.
