From: The StarT back screening tool and a pain mannequin improve triage in individuals with low back pain at risk of a worse prognosis – a population based cohort study

  Low back pain Reference group
SBT – Low risk 41 (80) 58 (98)
SBT – Medium risk 9 (18) 1 (2)
SBT – High risk 1 (2) 0
No MS-CWP 33 (67) 61 (94)
MS-CWP 16 (33) 4 (6)
  1. Screening by the SBT for low, medium or high risk of a worse prognosis and by pain mannequin for multisite chronic widespread pain (MS-CWP) or not (No MS-CWP) in both groups (LBP vs. reference group). Presented as number of individuals and percent (%). MS-CWP = multisite pain in ≥7 sites and chronic widespread pain distribution
