Spinal Manipulation in the Treatment of Low Back Pain

Our next #RheumJC discussion will be Thursday, April 27th, discussing the April 2017 JAMA article: Association of Spinal Manipulative Therapy With Clinical Benefit and Harm for Acute Low Back Pain: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis by Dr. Neil M. Paige, et al.

The publisher has graciously made this article free to access on April 26–27.

We also suggest the accompanying editorial: The Role of Spinal Manipulation in the Treatment of Low Back Pain.

Please note, our second session will be held one hour earlier than our usual time.
