Abstract

University of York, York, UK, e.l.harvey@leeds.ac.uk, introduce a treatment package of spinal manipulation for back pain agreed on by the UK chiropractic, osteopathy and physiotherapy professional associations. Abstract: In this review (29 references), a spinal manipulation package agreed by the UK professional associations representing chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists is described. It was devised for use in a large national trial of exercise and spinal manipulation for back pain designed to answer important questions about the benefits of spinal manipulation for back pain. In the design of this trial it was acknowledged that the spinal manipulation treatments provided by practitioners from the three professions shared more similarities than differences, and it became possible to devise a homogeneous package representative of, and acceptable to, all three. The resulting package is pragmatic in that it represents what happens to most people undergoing manipulation, and it excludes discipline-specific variations and other ancillary treatments.
