Incorrect Values in Table and Text in: Expenditures and Health Status Among Adults With Back and Neck Problems

JAMA. 2008;299(22):2630. doi:10.1001/jama.299.22.2630

Incorrect Values in Table and Text: In the Original Contribution entitled “Expenditures and Health Status Among Adults With Back and Neck Problems” published in the February 13, 2008, issue of JAMA (2008;299(6):656-664), data in Table 1 on page 658 were incorrectly reported. The corrected table appears here. In addition, the text on page 659 referring to the table should have read as follows: “The most common ICD-9-CM diagnoses were other and unspecified disorders of the back (58.3%), followed by intervertebral disk disorders (18.1%) and sprains or strains of the back (11.3%) (Table 1).” See also related letter in this issue.
