Treatment for acute LBP in active military personnel; a journal review

Brandon Masi Parker provides a journal review for the article A randomized, controlled trial of osteopathic manipulative treatment for acute low back pain in active duty military personnel, by

des Anges Cruser, Couglad Maurer, Kendi Hensel, Sarah K Brown, Kathryn White, Scott T Stoll in the Journal of Manual & Manipulative Therapy,  Volume 20, Number 1, 2012 , pp. 5-15(11).

This article is a crucial randomized and controlled study analyzing the effectiveness of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) for acute low back pain (LBP) in active military personnel.  The article analyzes pain, functionality and a few other parameters.  I make the assertion that this unique subset of population may provide a model for other LBP patients that have physically demanding lifestyles with limited possibility for rest.
