- Changes in Back Pain as Measured by a 10-point Visual Analog Scale (VAS). [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 6 ]
The 10-point Visual Analog Scale (VAS)rates 'no pain' as zero and 'worst pain imaginable' as ten. VAS mean improvement greater than or equal to 2 points is considered clinically relevant.
The change from baseline to Month 6 is presented below where a positive value represents the baseline value minus the 6 month value.
- Function as Measured Subjectively by the Oswestry Disability Index Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 6 ]Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) measures permanent functional disability using questions regarding activities of daily living (ADL), specifically disturbance of ADL related to chronic back pain. Higher scores indicate a 'more limited' life. The ten topics of the ODI are rated from zero (no pain/limitation) to five (high pain/very limited physically). The worst possible score is 50 (100% disability) with the best score being zero (0% disability).Change from baseline to 6 months is presented below, where a positive value represents the baseline value minus the 6 month value.
- Quality of Life Changes as Determined by Short Form 12-question (SF-12) Survey Specifically Related to Physical Component Score (PCS). [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 6 ]The SF-12 is a validated norm-based scoring tool used to determine treatment outcomes. The PCS summary measure shows the impact of the treatment on the patients abilities to conduct their usual physical activities. Clinical relevance of PCS is established by baseline to post-treatment improvement of 2 to 3 points. Norm-based scoring is used so that each scale has the same mean (50 points) and the same standard deviation (10 points) as the general US population in 1998. Scores below 50 indicate a decline in health status, with lower scores representing worse health status. Minimally Important Difference (MID) is a measure of true clinical relevance of a difference, with suggested MID for the Physical Component Summary (PCS) being 2 to 3 points. Change from baseline to 6 months is presented, where a positive value represents the 6 month value minus the baseline value.
