Table 4 Change in pain at 14-month follow-up in the two treatment groups

From: Do MRI findings identify patients with chronic low back pain and Modic changes who respond best to rest or exercise: a subgroup analysis of a randomised controlled trial

  Rest (mean (95% CI)) Exercise (mean (95% CI)) Treatment effecta (mean (95% CI))
Modic changes Type 1 0.13 (−0.62;0.88) 0.31 (−0.47;1.08) −0.17 (−1.28;0.93)
No Modic changes Type 1 2.91 (1.51;4.31) 2.09 (0.69;3.49) 0.82 (−1.23;2.86)
Modic changes large (≥25 %) 0.68 (−0.18;1.53) 1.09 (0.22;1.96) −0.41 (−1.62;0.79)
Modic changes small (<25 %) 0.93 (−0.35;2.22) −0.14 (−1.47;1.19) 1.08 (−0.97;3.12)
Large Modic changes Type 1 (≥25 %) 0.14 (−0.79;1.08) 0.75 (−0.18;1.68) −0.61 (−1.82;0.61)
No large Modic changes Type 1 1.57 (0.49;2.65) 0.68 (−0.45;1.82) 0.89 (−0.93;2.70)
