Table 3 Four-year patterns of reporting LBP

From: Individual courses of low back pain in adult Danes: a cohort study with 4-year and 8-year follow-up

  41 → 45 years 45 → 49 years
  Percentage of individuals reporting: Odds of reporting recurrent LBP Percentage of individuals reporting: Odds of reporting recurrent LBP
Category LBP new at 45 recurrent OR [95% CI] new at 49 recurrent OR [95% CI]
‘none’ 23% 50% 3.8 [2.2;6.4] 21% 53% 4.3 [2.5;7.4]
‘year’ 50% 77% 3.5 [2.2; 5.6] 47% 79% 4.3 [2.5; 7.4]
‘month’ 37% 65% 3.1 [2.0; 4.9] 29% 54% 2.9 [1.8; 4.8]
‘>30 days’ 15% 63% 9.9 [5.6; 17.5] 15% 51% 5.9 [3.2; 10.7]
‘seeking care’ 20% 52% 4.2 [2.5; 6.9] 25% 64% 5.2 [3.0; 9.0]
‘non-trivial’ 13% 56% 8.8 [4.7; 16.2] 12% 53% 8 [4.2; 15.5]
