2. Physical Therapy Referral From Primary Care for Acute Back Pain With Sciatica : A Randomized Controlled Trial. (Abstract)

Physical Therapy Referral From Primary Care for Acute Back Pain With Sciatica : A Randomized Controlled Trial. Few studies have examined primary care management for acute sciatica, including referral to physical therapy.To evaluate whether early referral to physical therapy reduced disability more than usual care (UC) alone for patients with acute sciatica.Randomized controlled clinical trial. (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02391350).2 health care systems in Salt Lake City, Utah.220 adults aged 18 (...) therapy.The primary outcome was the Oswestry Disability Index (OSW) score after 6 months. Secondary outcomes were pain intensity, patient-reported treatment success, health care use, and missed workdays.Participants in the EPT group had greater improvement from baseline to 6 months for the primary outcome (relative difference, -5.4 points [95% CI, -9.4 to -1.3 points]; P = 0.009). The OSW and several secondary outcomes favored EPT after 4 weeks. After 1 year, between-group differences favored EPT
