Abstract

The primary objective of the European evidence-based guidelines is to provide a set of recommendations that can support existing and future national and international guidelines or future updates of existing back pain guide- lines. This particular guideline intends to foster a realistic ap- proach to improving the treatment of common (nonspecific) chronic low back pain (CLBP) in Europe by: Providing recommendations on strategies to manage chronic low back pain and/or its consequences in the gen- eral population and in workers. Ensuring an evidence-based approach through the use of systematic reviews and existing evidence-based guide- lines, supplemented (where necessary) by individual sci- entific studies. Providing recommendations that are generally accept- able to a wide range of professions and agencies in all par- ticipating countries. Enabling a multidisciplinary approach, stimulating col- laboration between the various players potentially in- volved in treatment, thus promoting consistency across countries in Europe. Identifying ineffective interventions to limit their use. Highlighting areas where more research is needed.
