Can you answer this?
You have received a referral for a 38-year-old male client with chronic low back pain. He sustained his injury at work and is employed as a plumber.  In addition to your standard chiropractic CARE, you are trying to decide if this man would benefit from using a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) unit, and from attending a series of group education sessions on chronic pain management. Write a focused clinical question which will help you organize a search of the biomedical literature, as well as help, determine the relevance of the results to your patient.
