  1. The importance of radiating leg pain in assessing health outcomes among patients with low back pain : Results from the Veterans Health Study.

    Article - En anglais

    Study Design

    Cross-sectional data ewere analyzed from the Veterans Health Study, an observational study-of patients receiving ambulatory care.

    Objective

    Methods

    Results
