Spinal Manipulation for Acute Back Pain The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a review study of randomized clinical trials – high level research studies – about spinal manipulation for relief of acute back pain (back pain up to 6 weeks in duration). This review finds that spinal manipulation delivers modest improvement in pain and function with no serious adverse effects. (2) JAMA also published an editorial by the well-known medical doctor and author, Richard Deyo, MD, about spinal manipulation for back pain referencing Paige’s study. The editorial explains that spinal manipulation treatment for acute low back pain is fitting. Its use is in line with the American College of Physicians review and subsequent guideline. Spinal manipulation allows modest improvement in pain and function in the short-term in comparison with sham manipulation, usual care and other treatments. And of note, Deyo highlights that, of the trials reviewed by Paige et al and the American College of Physicians, none suggested that spinal manipulation care was less effective than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). SMT proved equal to or exceeded conventional care.
