Occupational therapy at the Liberty Mutual Medical Service Center, Boston, Massachusetts, offers a diverse variety of modalities for the treatment of patients with low back pain. Treatment may include the use of a balance monitor, a multiwork station, a pneumatic lifting-lowering device, a computerized upper extremity work simulator, and a truck-driving simulator.
