The Freburger study is good news for physical therapists.
Exercise as a treatment for chronic neck and back pain - what a concept!
I live in the Tampa Bay area where many world-class spine surgery facilities promote their version of effective spine care.
I have seen criticisms of this study that are unwarranted.
The point is a high-profile, large study advocates the exercise approach to chronic LBP before surgery and that physical therapists are the most likely professional to recommend exercise.
"Exercise prescription provided by PTs appears to be most in line with current guidelines."I am encouraged by these findings.
Anyone else think this is good news for physical therapists?
