Predictive ability of the STarT Back Tool

...is it really that good?

A new study has looked at the predictive ability of the STarT Back Tool in people with chronic low back pain (CLBP).

The cohort study enrolled 290 people who already had CLBP. They were all assessed with the STarT Back Tool at enrolment into the study and followed for one year, at which time disability, pain and global perceived change were assessed to see if the STarT Back Tool was predictive of any of those outcomes.
