    The basis for this handbook is methodology for evaluating the literature for the federally mandated Agency for Health Care Policy & Research expert panel on back problems as listed in the bibliography.  The methodological review of the back literature sought scientific evidence of benefit versus risks for evaluation and care methods relevant to back problems.  The result is a scientific basis for making recommendations about evaluation and treatment methods for spine patients.  The multidisciplinary panel of twenty-three national and seven international experts summarized "Findings and Recommendation" statements about reliability and safety as listed in the AHCPR Summary.  These scientific statements resulted from originally forming evidence tables created on 360 articles from over 10,000 screened articles.
