Introduction: Low back pain is the fifth most common reason for all physician visits. It represents significant burden on general population and for health care systems globally. Guidelines often recommend the use of self-management. A potentially useful way of self-manage is by using smartphone applications and websites. Purpose : Purpose of diploma work is to find out whether is it possible to show, on the basis of the literature review, if the symptoms of chronic low back pain can be alleviated by the use of modern technology, and what effects does the use have. Methods: Literature was searched in databases PEDro, ProQuest, MEDLINE and magazine JMIR Publications from June to October 2019. We used the following keywords in our search combinations: mHealth, eHelath, OR self-management [Title/Abstract] AND chronic low back pain OR chronic disability; web-based treatment, mobile apps [Title/Abstract] AND chronic pain. Results: Eight articles were included in the analysis. Effects of using apps are reduced pain, improved empowerment, reduced medication intake and improved quality of life. Results showed a decrease in pain intensity in five of eight studies and progress in physical activity and empowerment. Discussion and conclusion: Results show that there may be improvement because of the long-term use of apps. There is still insufficient reliable evidence for usefulness in clinical practice and further methodological research is needed.
