Abstract: Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most frequent patient complaints in primary care. Common LBP diagnoses include nonspecific LBP, radicular pain, lumbar-disk herniation, spinal infection, and ankylosing spondylitis. A thorough history and physical exam are imperative. LBP treatment is multifactorial and blends pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches.
