Final Announcement of
the 2nd Interdisciplinary World Congress on Low Back Pain;
The Integrated Function of the Lumbar Spine and Sacroiliac Joints

La Jolla, California, U.S.A., November 9 - 11, 1995

We have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the 2nd
Interdisciplinary World Congress on Low Back Pain. As in the previous
congress the integrated function of the lumbar spine and sacroiliac
joints will be emphasized and the consequences for diagnosis and
treatment of low back pain will be discussed. Low Back pain, both
acute and chronic, remains a world wide problem. Treatment through
the services of various professions has not yet solved the puzzle of
low back pain. A fresh look at the scientific basis of low back pain
based on renewed studies in anatomy, applied biomechanics and
physiology is the aim of basic researchers and clinicians worldwide.
Through the initiative of the Scientific Committee, clinicians and
researchers will be brought together to exchange ideas and advance
our understanding of low back pain. The first congress addressed
several important issues emphasizing the importance of developing
interdisciplinary standards for treating low back pain. New research,
both clinical and academic, is now available.
All written contributions will be available at the time of the
