In the Original Investigation entitled “Association of Spinal Manipulative Therapy With Clinical Benefit and Harm for Acute Low Back Pain: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis”1 published in the April 11, 2017, issue of JAMA, there were data errors in the text. The text says the N for Figure 2 is 1335, but it should be 1421 (as stated in Figure 2), and the text says the N for Figure 3 is 975, but it should be 1049 (as stated in Figure 3). Also, the N for the 15 randomized clinical trials should have been 1699, not 1711. This article was corrected online. This article was also corrected for errors in Figures 2 and 3 on June 6, 2017.2
