Does Osteopathic Manipulation help chronic low back pain?

Osteopathic manipulation, which may involve moving joints back into place, massaging soft tissue and helping relax stressed muscles, was found to reduce chronic low back pain.

Sixty-three percent of those who had osteopathic manipulation reported a moderate improvement in their pain while half said they experienced a substantial improvement.

Drugs do nothing to treat the underlying cause of back pain, which is often related to body mechanics, meaning your posture or muscle balance is off kilter.

Exercise, including foundation training, chiropractic care, and other natural methods such as massage, yoga, acupuncture and EFT are often effective at relieving chronic back pain.
