Title: The relative effectiveness of spinal manipulation as opposed to exercise therapy on mechanical low back pain in postnatal patients
Authors: Bailes, Brendon John
Issue Date: 1998
Abstract: 
The cause of postnatal low back pain is not clearly understood. There have been few studies performed to determine the cause, and several theories have attempted to explain the occurrence of postnatal low back pain. It is suggested that an exaggerated lumbar lordosis, laxity of the ligaments due to relaxin, biomechanical strain on the muscles and ligaments of the lumbar spine and pelvis and temporary compensatory posture are possible aetiologies of postnatal low back pain. (Calguneri et al. 1982; Bullock et al. 1987 ; Berg et al. 1988; Wisneski et al.1992: 711 ; Mantle 1994:799.)
