Clinical Trial of PKP Kinesiology for Chronic Low Back Pain 

Single-Blind, Randomised Controlled Pilot Study

A clinical trial of Professional Kinesiology Practice (PKP) for chronic low back pain undertaken through the University of Southamptom in the UK and led by Dr Susan Eardley (Fellow ICPKP) has been published in the July 2013 edition of Forschende Komplementärmedizin.

“Back pain is a common problem which is not easy to treat using conventional methods” says Dr Eardley.  “The results of this study indicate that PKP may be a very powerful intervention for chronic back pain and we need to perform further work to confirm our findings.  If we can repeat our results in a much larger study then the benefits to PKP as a profession would be immense”
