This comparative descriptive study, an extension of previous research on adult males with chronic low back pain, investigated perceived body space (PBS) and self esteem in adult females with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Findings were compared to adult males with CLBP and adult female populations without acute or chronic health conditions. Results indicated that no significant difference existed between adult females and males with CLBP regarding PBS and self-esteem. Additional analyses indicated that PBS in adult females with CLBP was significantly different from several groups of "healthy" adult females. Ancillary findings indicated that adult females with CLBP were significantly more depressed than adult males with CLBP.
