Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this review was to determine the most commonly reported and utilized low back pain (LBP) Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) within the chiropractic literature and to investigate their temporal and methodological publication characteristics.

METHODS:

A systematic search of English-language publications in 5 electronic databases (PubMed, Cochrane [CENTRAL], CINAHL/EBSCO, PsycINFO, and Index to Chiropractic Literature) was conducted for articles published from the inception of each database through June 2016.

RESULTS:

One hundred forty-four articles were retrieved that utilized 75 different LBP PROMs. The 4 most commonly used LBP PROMs in the chiropractic literature were the Oswestry Disability Index, Numeric Rating Scale, Visual Analogue Scale, and Roland Morris Questionnaire.

CONCLUSIONS:

This research has created a unique list of the most commonly used LBP PROMs within the chiropractic literature.
