Summary

This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of minimal intervention and therapeutic alliance in pain, specific and general disability, global perceived effect, empathy, credibility and expectation of improvement in patients with chronic non-specific low back pain

Description

Low back pain remains a global public health problem. The classification of patients in low back pain subgroups aims to optimize the health system and provide the quantity and the type of proper technique for each patient. Several factors may influence physical therapy. The therapeutic alliance may be defined as harmony or social connection between the therapist and the patient and may influence the treatment effect. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the addition of the therapeutic alliance to a minimum intervention for the treatment of chronic non-specific low back pain with low risk of psychosocial factors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A strategy for purchasing health care in a manner which will obtain maximum value for the price for the purchasers of the health care and the recipients. The concept was developed primarily by Alain Enthoven of Stanford University and promulgated by the Jackson Hole Group. The strategy depends on sponsors for groups of the population to be insured. The sponsor, in some cases a health alliance, acts as an intermediary between the group and competing provider groups (accountable health plans). The competition is price-based among annual premiums for a defined, standardized benefit package. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)
