The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode.

It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.
