dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to determine whether the cumulative effect of studying, and practising manual therapeutic techniques (including receiving manipulation), is associated with chiropractic students experiencing low back pain (LBP). According to Smith (2005), students currently registered in the Durban Institute of Technology Health faculty were found to have the highest proportion of LBP when compared to students in other faculties. Thirty seven percent of the students with LBP were chiropractic students. In a study performed by Macanuel et al. (2005) on undergraduate chiropractic training, it was concluded that chiropractic students experience side effects during chiropractic technique class. There is epidemiological evidence that chiropractors are a high-risk group of health professionals who experience low back disorders (Tim 1996, Lorme and Naqv 2003, Rupert and Ebete 2004). Rupert and Ebete (2004) suggest that the majority of chiropractors have suffered an occupational injury primarily related to administering manual procedures.en_US
