One article on PainSci cites Chaitow 2011: Your Back Is Not Out of Alignment
PainSci notes on Chaitow 2011:
A series of rebuttals to Eyal Lederman’s well-known article criticizing the validity and clinical utility of the postural-structural-biomechanical model of pain (see Lederman), and therefore it is also a rebuttal to my own article on this topic (see Your Back Is Not Out of Alignment). I am not impressed: most of what is good in these rebuttals is consistent with what I've already conceded (namely that, yes, duh, structure is sometimes clinically relevant), while the rest generally fails to address the concerns that both Dr. Lederman and I have raised.
