Introduction to Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment for Lower Back Pain

Back pain is most often caused by strains or spasms in muscles and ligaments, but can also be the result of more serious problems such as osteoarthritis. An osteopath will work to relieve this type of back pain and improve mobility. Over time, an osteopath can help people with back pain get back their mobility. The treatment that osteopaths provide consists of a wide range of techniques such as massage and joint-movement therapy.
