Chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP) is a common healthcare problem for which current interventions are only moderately successful . There is growing evidence of extensive cortical reorganisation and perceptual disturbances which may contribute to the condition . The aim of this study was to test whether a graded sensorimotor retraining program, aimed at influencing cortical representation, would reduce pain intensity, interference of pain on daily life and self reported disability.
