    Study Design

    Cost data were gathered from computerized records of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company for low back pain worker's compensation claims (N=119,107) and for all claims (N=731,087) initiated from 45 jurisdictions (states) during 1989.


    This study provided more current, accurate, and additional information to estimate the costs and incidence associated with compensable low back pain compared with all compensation claims.


    The first group of data included all compensable low back claims selected by specific codes : body part codes consisted of low back area, sacrum and coccyx, disc, and multiple trunk ; injury codes consisted of strain, sprain, inflammation, rupture, hernia, fracture, and contusion.
