The present study evaluated changes in the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) profile levels of chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients following successful treatment for their disability. A total of 69 patients were evaluated at admission and 6 months after completing the treatment program. Results demonstrated significant decreases of the Hysteria, Depression, and Hypochondriasis scales toward normal ranges at the 6-month evaluation. These results indicate that MMPI profile levels of CLBP patients are significantly reduced to normal ranges following successful treatment.
