Outcomes of primary care back pain patients (N=1128) were studied at 1 year after seeking care.
Changes in depression depending on outcome, and predictors of poor outcome were evaluated.
Less than one back pain patient in five reported recent onset (first onset within the previous 6 months).
One year after seeking care, the large majority of both recent and nonrecent-onset patients reported having back pain in the previous month (69% vs. 82%). A significant minority of both recent and nonrecent-onset patient had either a poor functional outcome (14% vs. 21%) or continuing high intensity pain without appreciable disability (10% vs. 16%).
