Spinal manipulation: Current state of research and its indications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

95 Scopus citations


Based on the most recent and comprehensive systematic reviews, there is moderate evidence of short-term efficacy for spinal manipulation in the treatment of both acute and chronic low back pain. There is insufficient data available to draw conclusions regarding the efficacy for lumbar radiculopathy. The evidence is also not conclusive for the long-term efficacy of spinal manipulation for any type of low back pain.
