Waddell signs

Waddell signs
five signs indicating that a patient's low back pain is being intensified by psychological factors: tenderness that is not localized but spread over a wide area; production of pain by rotation of the pelvis or shoulders; decrease in pain behavior when the patient is distracted by the examiner; weakness or sensory disturbance that is not limited in a normal anatomic distribution; and overreaction, i.e. excessive body language or verbalization during the examination.
