Methodological framework for the management of neck and low back pain

The aim of the Back-UP project is to develop a technological platform with prognostic models to support more effective and efficient management of neck and low back pain (NLBP), based on the digital representation of multidimensional clinical information, and in-silico assessments of possible interventions.

This documents (Deliverable 1.1) describes how Back-UP approaches the management of NLBP, based on the three main end-user cases that have been considered in the project: the clinical treatment of the patient that seeks healthcare, the return to work of a patient who has been off work due to NLBP, and the self-management of health. An integrated case story illustrates the interactions of users with the platform through the whole process.
