Low back pain (LBP) is a multifactorial dysfunction, with one of the potential contributing factors being the hip joint. Currently, research investigating the examination and conservative treatment of LBP has focused primarily on the lumbar spine. The objective of this clinical commentary is to discuss the potential link between hip impairments and LBP using current best evidence and the concept of regional interdependence as tools to guide decision making and offer ideas for future research.
