Adolescents suffering from a scoliosis often have concomitant back pain. So far, no research has been put forward on the best intervention in dealing with the pain experienced by those patients. Spinal manipulation has long been recognized as an effective approach in adult and back pain. Unfortunately, no research has addressed this situation in children and adolescent. My research consists of an RCT on the effectiveness of spinal manipulation in improving back pain and health-related quality of life in adolescent with a scoliosis.
