This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. AIM: A study was carried out to determine whether the charts are able to measure the degree of functional impairment associated with acute illness and the improvement in functional ability accompanying the process of recovery.
METHOD: A total of 95 patients presenting with acute low back pain were recruited from 15 single-handed general practices in northern Germany. The charts ask patients to use the timescale of the past two weeks when rating their condition.
RESULTS: Only the chart measuring change in health revealed a deterioration in functional ability associated with the onset of pain and an improvement in functional status at follow up. Two of the other charts indicated a deterioration at follow up. Only the chart measuring change in health was correlated with ratings of pain and impairment at baseline. CONCLUSION: Of the six charts only the change in health chart proved to be a suitable scale for measuring short-term changes in functional ability among general practice patients with acute low back pain.
This may partly be a result of patients misunderstanding the instructions. It is suggested that patients consider their present complaints when rating their condition.
