Rolfing® SI and Back Pain

Structural Integration as an Adjunct to Outpatient Rehabilitation for Chronic Nonspecific Low Back Pain: A Randomized Pilot Clinical Trial.

„(…) These outcomes suggest that the addition of Rolf® Structural Integration to outpatient rehabilitation is likely to result in a significantly greater improvement in disability at least in the short term, with no significant increase in the incidence or seriousness of AE.  Feasibility data on subject recruitment, retention, and compliance with treatment assignment suggested that a larger, more definitive trial would be feasible.“
