Low back pain ( LBP) is a significant health problem which affects about 70%-80% of the population during the course of their life . The majority of LBP is resolved within 3 months; however, up to 40% of LBP becomes chronic. One subgroup of chronic LBP is patients with sciatica. Sciatica is characterized by radiating pain to the buttock and lower limb, with or without low back pain.
It has been shown in the upper limb that by positioning the contra-lateral arm in tension the investigators actually reduce tension in the ipsilateral arm. Patients, who present with symptoms like sciatica, can benefit from this maneuver (neural dynamics techniques) that reduces tension through the contra-lateral leg.
Working Hypothesis: Compared with a placebo maneuver of the upper limb, the neural dynamics techniques will result in better rehabilitation of individuals with radicular LBP.
Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of neural dynamics techniques, using the contra-lateral leg, in the treatment of sub-acute/chronic Low back pain with radiation to the leg. Study Methodology: Eligible individuals will be assessed by a physiotherapist that will be blinded to the treatment allocation; treatment (either intervention or placebo) will be provided by a physiotherapist that will be blinded to the patient's assessment. The treated individuals and the referring physician will also be blinded to the treatment allocation;
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.
Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
