Shin JS, Lee J, Kim M, et al. The short-term effect of integrated complementary and alternative medicine treatment in inpatients diagnosed with lumbar intervertebral disc herniation: a prospective observational study. J Alt Comp Med. 2016;22(7):533-543. 
In a prospective observational study, hospital-based South Korean researchers evaluated the combination of manual medicine with traditional Korean medicine in the treatment of patients with lumbar intervertebral disk herniation. Inclusion criteria were hospitalization due to low back pain (LBP) and/or leg radiculopathy diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging or physical examination. Exclusion criteria included main symptom other than LBP or cause of LBP not related to intervertebral disk herniation, such as spinal tumors, pregnancy, urolithiasis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
