Table 4 Differences in self-reported physical or mental health, n = 52

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

  Lower risk in combined screening (n = 36) Mean (SD) High risk in combined screening (n = 16) Mean (SD) p-value
RMDQ (0–24) 5.8 (4.1) 7.8 (5.3) 0.228
EQ5D (0–1) 0.72 (0.18) 0.63 (0.27) 0.155
FABQ PA (0–24) 8.6 (5.5) 7.9 (6.8) 0.701
FABQ work (0–42) 12.6 (11.6) 20.1 (14.4) 0.066
HAD anxiety (0–21) 7.2 (3.1) 9.1 (1.7) 0.026
HAD depression (0–21) 3.3 (1.9) 4.6 (1.3) 0.016
Pain NRS (1–10) 4.5 (2.0) 6.3 (1.9) < 0.001
  1. Analysis based on the triage by the combination of the SBT and pain mannequin in individuals with low back pain. SBT = STarT Back Screening Tool. Lower risk in combined screening = SBT low and medium risk or no Multisite Chronic Widespread Pain (MS-CWP). High risk in combined screening = SBT high risk or MS-CWP. RMDQ = Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (best-worst), EQ5D = EuroQol 5-domain (worst-best), FABQ = Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire for physical activity and work (best-worst), HAD = Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale (best-worst), NRS = numeric rating scale (best-worst)
