Abstract

Chronic low back patients reported their satisfaction with the treatment they received for back pain from GPs and osteopaths practising in the same surgery. Although levels of satisfaction were high for all treatments, patients reported significantly higher scores for satisfaction with the osteopathic treatment. The difference was stronger for aspects of care/communication and competence, and weaker for satisfaction with efficacy. These findings are discussed in reference to patients' expectations, novelty, time spent with patients, number of visits, and patients' age.
