Spine Research Article

A new study published in SPINE addresses the question, “Does Maintained Spinal Manipulation Therapy for Chronic Non-Specific Low Back Pain Result in Better Long-Term Outcome?” The study suggests patients with low back pain of at least six months duration experience greater improvement following one month (12 treatments) of spinal manipulative therapy followed by “maintenance spinal manipulation” every two weeks for nine months. After 10 months, only the group receiving maintenance care reported significant improvement, whereas the group that did not receive maintenance care experienced pain and disability scores “near to their pretreatment level.”
