Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common presentations in primary healthcare. It is a complex condition with a multifactorial aetiology, which perhaps explains why there is a lack of strong clear evidence for effective treatment protocols. The treatment-based classification (TBC) system is one of several models that classify LBP patients into subgroups in order to tailor treatment more appropriately, which seems to yield improved outcomes. This article reviews the evidence available, the TBC system and treatment recommendations. With explanatory videos, links to current research results and patient exercise leaflets, this article will allow you to better understand and more effectively treat your LBP patients.
