Abstract: This cross-sectional study investigates the correlation between lower back pain and psychological distress. Despite common assumptions, our findings reveal no significant statistical correlation between these two factors, aligning with previous studies such as Alturkistani et al. Study design: Cross sectional study. Purpose: Consider 2 patients of the same age, same pathology seen on MRI but different tolerance to lower back pain. Both these patients have different effect on similar management and it would be interesting to know was whether there is a psychological component related with pain. Low back pain (LBP) is so common around the world that almost everyone will have at least one episode during their lifetime. It is defined as pain and discomfort between the costal margin and inferior gluteal folds with or without leg pain. Movement aggravates mechanical pain, which is eased by rest. Significance: This study contributes to the ongoing debate about the relationship between physical and psychological health, specifically in the context of lower back pain, a common health issue worldwide.
