Spinal Symposium recommends physical therapy for back pain

Paul Parolin's report from the 3rd annual spinal symposium in London. Speaking were consultant neurosurgeons who deal with spinal conditions covering low back, neck and childhood conditions. In the audience were a group of about 170 people made up of physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. Physical therapy such as chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy or acupuncture are recommended treatments rather than pain killers or surgery.
