2015 – Cost-effectiveness of early interventions for non-specific low back pain

Medical yoga is cost-effective compared with self-care advice if an employer considers the significant im-provement in the HRQL of an employee with low back pain justifies the additional cost of treatment (i.e. in this study EUR 150). From a societal perspective, medical yoga is a cost-effective treatment compared with exercise therapy and self-care advice if an additional QALY is worth EUR 11,500. Sensitivity analysis suggests that medical yoga is more cost-effective than its alternatives.
