- •We used collaborative modeling to evaluate how LBP patients conceptualize their condition.
- •Patients created mental models with greatest weight on biomechanical factors.
- •Patient views contrast the psychological bias of clinicians and researchers.
- •Mental models can be used as a possible method to understand how patients view their condition.
