What are the most common diagnoses in patients who present with LBP

A specific abnormality or disease is not identified in up to 85% of patients who present with LBP resulting in the diagnosis of nonspecific LBP. In another subset of patients, LBP is associated with specific spine pathology such as compression fracture, spondylolisthesis, ankylosing spondylitis, malignancy, or infection. LBP may be a presenting symptom in patients with spinal stenosis or lumbar disc herniation. LBP may also originate from nonspinal causes such as:

• Visceral disease (e.g. renal stones, pancreatitis, aortic aneurysm)

• Myofascial disease (e.g. fibromyalgia)

• Hip joint arthritis

• Sacroiliac joint pathology
