In episode 197 I share a scientific study, hitting the highlights of a 1991 paper by Stephen Kuslich entitled The Tissue Origin of Low Back Pain and Sciatica.  The first of this kind of podcast focused on reviewing a scientific paper which I decided to try out, knowing that practicing "evidence-based" is more and more the emphasis in todays world of MSK care.  This paper discusses the actual patients and their report of pain experienced when various tissues in the lumbar spine were stimulated via blunt probe or electrical impulse.
