Low back pain (LBP) continues to be the primary condition treated in outpatient physical therapy. There is much emphasis on classifications, assessments, and interventions for treatment of LBP. While it's understood that we need to consider neighboring regions during assessment and interventions, there have been a number of case studies published recently highlighting the importance of considering the vascular system for patients presenting with LBP and lower extremity symptoms. While a vascular cause may be less common, this module will highlight how lower extremity peripheral artery disease can contribute to LBP and will review the tests that can help identify peripheral artery disease.
