Osteopathy Effective for Lower Back Pain

A German study on the effectiveness of osteopathy for lower back pain found that 2-3 osteopathic treatments significantly improved pain levels.

Osteopathy for lower back pain

The randomized controlled trial involved 60 participants who suffered between 4 weeks and 6 months with lower back pain. They were split into 2 groups, one who only received physiotherapy and one who received the osteopathy treatments as well as physiotherapy. The first group reported a 30% improvement in their pain, whereas the group receiving osteopathy treatments had a 66% improvement. (Statistically, this meant a 2.5 times improvement for the osteopathy group compared to the physiotherapy only group.)

(It is worth noting that the participants received 6 physiotherapy treatments, compared to only 2 or 3 osteopathy treatments. It would be reasonable to assume that, had the participants received 6 osteopathy treatments instead, the improvement would have been even greater.)
