Massage therapy for low back pain – my take on the latest meta-analysis

A new meta-analysis of massage therapy for low back pain was just released and the authors’ conclusion are ruffling some feathers in the massage therapy community.  Nick Ng of Massage & Fitness magazine interviewed me for my take on the matter, and I give my perspective as a clinical research and meta-analyst.  I reach a slightly more optimistic conclusion than the study authors (which is not to say I disagree with their work in a major way, only in the interpretation).  Check it out here.
