Setting: Outpatient rehabilitation department. Design: Retrospective analysis from a randomized trial. Methods: Two hundred and ten patients with cLBP were randomly assigned to either BS, IP or SM; the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RM) was assessed before and after treatment: those who decreased their RM score
