Abstract Objective: to review and update the evidence for different forms of manual therapy (MT) for patients with different stages of non-specific low back pain (LBP). Data sources: MEDLINE, Cochrane-Register-of-Controlled-Trials, PEDro, EMBASE. Method: A systematic review of MT with a literature search covering the period of January 2000 to April 2013 was conducted by two independent reviewers according to Cochrane and PRISMA guidelines. A total of 360 studies were evaluated using qualitative… Expand
The efficacy of manual therapy and exercise for treating non-specific neck pain: A systematic review
TLDR
It is shown that combining different forms of MT with exercise is better than MT or exercise alone, and the second one is that mobilization need not be applied at the symptomatic level(s) for improvements of NP patients. Expand
Effectiveness of classic physical therapy proposals for chronic non-specific low back pain: a literature review.
INTRODUCTION Chronic low back pain is a pathological process that compromises the functionality and quality of life worldwide. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness ofExpand
Manual therapy applied by general practitioners for nonspecific low back pain: results of the ManRück pilot-study
TLDR
Before verifying the encouraging findings that additional MT may lead to faster pain reduction and reduced analgesic use via an RCT, the setting, patients’ structure, and inclusion criteria should be considered more closely. Expand
Osteopathic Manual Treatment for Pain Severity, Functional Improvement, and Return to Work in Patients With Chronic Pain
TLDR
Moderate quality evidence suggests that OMTh is effective for CNCP patients, and there was a significant association between visceral OMTh and reduced pain severity and disability. Expand
Evidence-based orthopaedic manual therapy for patients with nonspecific low back pain : analysis of a kinematic model of the spine
TLDR
The different points and perspectives developed along this thesis contribute towards solving the complex puzzle of LBP within a patient-centred approach. Expand
Effects of exercise therapy in patients with acute low back pain: a systematic review of systematic reviews
TLDR
Very low to moderate certainty of evidence is suggested that exercise therapy may result in little or no important difference in pain or disability, compared with other interventions, in adult patients with acute low back pain. Expand
Effects of a protocol with manual therapy and postural techniques for non-specific low back pain
TLDR
The protocol with MT and postural techniques promoted improvement of pain and increase of pressure sensitivity threshold in patients with chronic non-specific LBP. Expand
Rational and design of an individual participant data meta-analysis of spinal manipulative therapy for chronic low back pain—a protocol
TLDR
The aim is to assess the overall treatment effect of SMT for primary and secondary outcomes in adults with chronic LBP to determine possible moderation of baseline characteristics on treatment effect and to identify mediators of treatment effects. Expand
The role of physical therapy and rehabilitation after lumbar fusion surgery for degenerative disease: a systematic review.
TLDR
The data supporting an optimal protocol for postfusion rehabilitation remains elusive but, using the data available, the authors have crafted recommendations and a model protocol, which is currently undergoing prospective study. Expand

TLDR
The integrative approach presented in this article is a mix of previously developed classification systems and new tools, as kinematic analyses for LBP, and a novel validated combined movements examination that may help clinicians and researchers to better understand and then to treat patients with non-specific LBP.

Efficacy of spinal manipulation and mobilization for low back pain and neck pain: a systematic review and best evidence synthesis.
TLDR
Recommendations can be made with some confidence regarding the use of SMT and/or MOB as a viable option for the treatment of both low back pain and NP, with special attention to applying more stringent criteria for study admissibility into evidence. Expand
Orthopaedic manual therapy, McKenzie method or advice only for low back pain in working adults: a randomized controlled trial with one year follow-up.
TLDR
The orthopaedic manual therapy and McKenzie methods seemed to be only marginally more effective than was one session of assessment and advice-only for treating low back pain/leg pain and disability. Expand
Spinal Manipulative Therapy for Acute Low Back Pain: An Update of the Cochrane Review
TLDR
For the outcomes of pain and functional status, there is low- to very low-quality evidence suggesting no difference in effect for SMT when compared with inert interventions, sham SMT or as adjunct therapy. Expand
Spinal manipulative therapy for low back pain: A systematic review
TLDR
Evidence that spinal manipulative therapy combined with exercise is more effective than exercise alone, which is revealed by a high quality study, moderate quality studies and a low quality study is found. Expand
Randomized Controlled Trial of Specific Spinal Stabilization Exercises and Conventional Physiotherapy for Recurrent Low Back Pain
TLDR
There was no additional benefit of adding specific spinal stabilization exercises to a conventional physiotherapy package for patients with recurrent low back pain and both groups showed improved physical functioning, reduced pain intensity, and an improvement in the physical component of quality of life. Expand
Does targeting manual therapy and/or exercise improve patient outcomes in nonspecific low back pain? A systematic review
TLDR
The clinical implications are that they provide very cautious evidence supporting the notion that treatment targeted to subgroups of patients with NSLBP may improve patient outcomes, and the research shows that adequately powered controlled trials using designs capable of providing robust information on treatment effect modification are uncommon.

Cost-effectiveness of Combined Manipulation, Stabilizing Exercises, and Physician Consultation Compared to Physician Consultation Alone for Chronic Low Back Pain: A Prospective Randomized Trial With 2-Year Follow-up
TLDR
Physician consultation alone was more cost-effective for both health care use and work absenteeism, and led to equal improvement in disability and health-related quality of life. Expand
A Cochrane Review of Combined Chiropractic Interventions for Low-Back Pain
TLDR
There is currently no evidence that supports or refutes that combined chiropractic interventions provide a clinically meaningful difference for pain or disability in people with LBP when compared to other interventions. Expand
Integration of subclassification strategies in randomised controlled clinical trials evaluating manual therapy treatment and exercise therapy for non-specific chronic low back pain: a systematic review
TLDR
A meta-analysis showed a statistical difference in favour of the classification-based intervention for reductions in pain and disability, both for short-term and long-term reduction in pain, in the few studies where classification and matched interventions have been used. Expand
Spinal manipulative therapy for acute low-back pain.
TLDR
There was varying quality of evidence suggesting no difference in effect for SMT when compared with other interventions, with the exception of low quality evidence from one trial demonstrating a significant and moderately clinically relevant short-term effect of SMT on pain relief when compared to inert interventions.
