Should I trust that my therapist or practitioner is using a high-quality, research supported methods for treating my back pain?
This is a good question to ask your physical therapist, acupuncturist, masseuse, chiropractor or selected practitioner. A rigorous evidence-based education should provide your therapist of choice with the skills, tools and the body of research to support why they are selecting each treatment. It would not be unwise to have a brief discussion on the rationale behind their treatment choice.
