This study aimed to understand osteopaths' experiences of the practical application of the BPS model to patients with LBP, and to describe any challenges in operationalisation.

The paper by Khalil et al. is a definite step forward in terms of substantiation of basivertebral nerve ablation as a reasonable, nonsurgical, interventional treatment option for a specific lumbar vertebral body pathoanatomy which is likely responsible for a portion of patients with low back pain (LBP).

Conclusion: This study of community-based patients in a pain research registry supports the effectiveness of OMT as an integral component of osteopathic medical care for chronic low back pain. Patients treated by DOs who did not use OMT did not experience better results than patients treated by MDs in any primary outcome measure. Further research is needed to more specifically compare the effects of OMT with other treatment effects that may be attributed to patient-DO interactions during medical encounters.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: We investigated the effects of lower back pain (LBP) on measures of pain, disability, and function in highly symptomatic hip OA patients receiving intra-articular steroid injection (IASI) therapy. We also investigated the effect of radiographic severity of hip OA for comparison to LBP. METHODS: 97 consenting subjects with symptomatic hip OA presenting for IASI were evaluated at baseline, assessed over an 8-week period, and followed at least 1 year later for new arthroplasty. At baseline and 8 weeks follow-up patient demographics, presence/absence of back pain, physical fun...
