Diagnosis/ PT Impression: Low Back Pain.
Really! Can we be more specific? Are we listening to what our clients are saying?
To help our clients better, physiotherapists and healthcare providers have to meticulously evaluate the issues happening on the low back, correlate with the imaging results if available and listen to the subjective complaints. Try to match the subjective data and objective results, include other factors, think outside the box. Is it making any sense…? If not, what else can you do? Low back pain is a symptom. Not a diagnosis.
