The working hypothesis is that spa therapy in addition to usual care including home exercises (UCHE) will result in greater improvements in pain reduction, associated disability and quality of life for chronic low back pain patients. It follows that health resource consumption and linked costs should also be reduced. The primary objective of this study is therefore to compare the therapeutic effect of UCHE alone versus spa therapy in addition to UCHE for chronic low back pain.


Secondarily, the study will also (i) evaluate the therapeutic effects specific to each spa-centre, (ii) specifically describe effects among subjects who are currently engaged in a professional activity, (iii) evaluate treatment tolerance as well as (iv) per-patient health resource use and associated costs.
