Abstract

We observe many orthopedic patients suffering from low back pain. Though different techniques are employed for diagnosis, many of these cases are labelled “indeterminate”, as conventional methods make it difficult to examine the causes of complaints. Cases of low back pain are therefore extremely complicated and it is difficult to clarify the relationship between the cause and the resulting problem.
