Spinal manipulation for chronic low back pain
Record ID 32004000073
This study aims to assess the effects of spinal manipulation on people with chronic low back pain, compared with other treatments.
Authors' recomendations: We found no evidence about the shortor long-term effectiveness of spinal manipulation in the treatment of people with chronic low back pain, of at least 12 weeks duration. This was due to the lack of studies of spinal manipulation carried out in this population.
