Effects of visceral manipulation on low back pain

A possible beneficial addition to standard treatment?

Although a broad body of literature exists, which investigated low back pain (LBP) treatments, recommended interventions resulted in only small beneficial effects. This study aimed to investigate if additional new treatments, such as visceral manipulation, may improve outcomes in LBP. This study would suggest that visceral manipulation as a treatment is not needed in the early stages of LBP, but may be considered in patients who are not recovering appropriately in the first few weeks.
