Musculoskeletal pain treatment pathways (PACE)

Neck, low back, and knee pain treatment pathways


The primary aim of this study was to investigate innovative, streamlined treatment pathways to advance understanding of recovery from musculoskeletal conditions. This study aimed to improve health care by providing the right treatment to the right people at the right time. One group was treated by their usual doctor or health professional as required, while the other group was given treatment based on their responses to the questionnaires, with care provided by their primary care provider and/or a specialist provider.
