Regional manual therapy and motor control exercise for LBP

Within the umbrella term of 'non-specific low back pain' (NSLBP), studies are being performed to identify subgroups with definable movement impairments or pain.

The inclusion and exclusion criteria are tightly monitored to filter in a specific homogeneous subgroup for the treatment to be applied on.
