Osteopathy and Acupuncture
For Patients with Musculoskeletal Problems
Is it feasible and effective to provide osteopathy and acupuncture for patients with musculoskeletal problems in a GP setting?
Spinal manipulation and acupuncture can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of musculoskeletal (MSK) pain. Both approaches are currently recommended by NICE as treatment options for patients with persistent low back pain. However, there has been no previous evaluation of a GP service using them together for MSK pain. The purpose of this study was to evaluate acceptability and outcomes for an osteopathy and acupuncture service (delivered by complementary therapy practitioners) for patients with MSK problems provided within a General Practice.
