Identifying homogenous subgroups of non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) patients is considered a priority in the low back pain field. In achievinq this the specific features facilitating clinical distinction need to be identified. This study's primary aim was to develop a list of potentially important and discriminatory clinical items for NSLBP identified by Greek health professionals, and test them in a patient sample for their ability to discriminate different subsets. A secondary aim was to yield any cultural factors potentially influential in diagnostic practice in Greece.
