Approximately 900 patients from chiropractic practice and 250 from general practice were included at their first visit due to an episode of low back pain and followed with weekly sms questions for one year. Data provide the basis for two PhD projects (Anne Mølgaard Nielsen and Lisbeth Hartvigsen) and two other major research foci: 1) Trajectories of LBP are identified by means of Latent Class analysis, and 2) Pain trajectories are related to the use of health care services based on register data. Further, several other smaller projects will be performed with various co-workers.
