60: Why spinal manipulation won’t solve your low back pain / sciatica

Provider of self-help for lower back pain and sciatica, Edinburgh Osteopath Gavin Routledge explains why spinal manipulation won’t solve your low back pain / sciatica. But he also explains how it does relieve it.

The main reasons discussed are:

  • Logic – it wasn’t an absence of manipulation that caused your pain
  • Pain isn’t correlated with misalignments (they are a myth)
  • If it did solve it, a lot of manipulative therapists would be out of business
