    Program Description
    True understanding of lumbo pelvic pain, must be based on understanding the
    functional synergies between torso, pelvis, legs and arms. This credo was the
    rationale for organizing the First and Second Interdisciplina-ry World
    Congresses on Low Back Pain in 1992 and 1995. During these two congresses
    experts from all over the world convened in La Jolla, California, to add to our
    rapidly expanding understanding of the many causes that can lead to low back
    pain. The Third Interdisciplinary World Congress on the topic is scheduled for
    November 1998 and will be held in Vienna, Austria. Our goal is to further
    refine the scientific knowledge underpinning the working models conceived

    Call for papers:

    sessions. The Scientific Committee would like to invite original abstracts on
