Multisociety letter to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality: serious methodological flaws plague technology assessment on pain management injection therapies for low back pain.
The recent publication of an AHRQ report on Pain Management Injection Therapies for Low Back Pain has raised significant concerns for physicians who utilize injection procedures to treat patients suffering with pain and functional limitations resulting from spinal pathology. The authors are concerned that the methodology used by the report cannot and does not make such determinations, and that the conclusions may lead to egregious denial of access to these procedures for many patients suffering from low back pain.
