This research paper describes the reduced risk of needing additional medical services if you try physical therapy within the acute phase (described as < 4 weeks) of a new onset of lower back pain. Click here for the reference.

This research paper describes the cost savings when patients with acute lower back pain see a physical therapist within the first 14 days of a new episode of pain.

This research paper demonstrates that patients that saw their primary care doctor for a new episode of lower back pain and had an MRI first, spent an average of $4793 on treatment versus those that saw a physical therapist first.

This Consumer Reports/Choosing Wisely document describes why having an MRI first when you have lower back pain will not help you feel better faster and imaging tests can also lead to surgery and other treatments that you do not need.

This research paper describes a 60% cost savings and overall lower utilization of healthcare services when patients with a new episode of back pain see a physical therapist first and receive education, exercise, and manual therapy treatment.

This high quality research paper concludes that specific strengthening exercises of the neck, middle back, and shoulder for chronic neck pain and chronic neck-related headaches are beneficial.
