Over the last decade there has been potential for manual therapists to extend their roles and develop their careers. In order to explore the career pathways of a group of postgraduate manual therapists and to identify the influence of Master's education on those careers, a postal questionnaire was sent to all graduates from a clinically based programme(More)
Joint mobilisation to the T4 vertebra has been advocated as a treatment for T4 syndrome. To date no controlled studies have investigated the effects of thoracic spinal manual therapy (SMT) applied to T4 on sympathetic activity in the hands. This study investigated whether a grade III postero-anterior rotatory joint mobilisation technique applied to the T4(More)
Two commonly utilised manual therapy techniques; McKenzie's lumbar extension exercises (EE); and segmental rotational grade V manipulation were investigated to determine their magnitude of neurophysiological effect. Proxy measures of sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity (skin conductance) were utilised to ascertaining neurophysiological response. This(More)
We present some ideas here about prose reading comprehension tests, with analogies to program reading exercises, and suggest the potential usefulness of a standardized, nationwide program reading comprehension test as a means to assess on a comparative basis individual and department-wide progress through the computer science curriculum. We conclude with a(More)
Physiotherapeutic management of lumbar disorders often utilises specific segmental joint mobilisation techniques; however, there is only limited evidence of any neurophysiological effects and much of this has focused on the cervical spine and upper limbs. This study aims to extend the knowledge base underpinning the use of a unilaterally applied lumbar(More)
Seven problems were posed. Seventeen teams submitted programs exclusively in C while ten team s submitted programs exclusively in Pascal. Two of the problems were solved by over half of the team s while one problem was not solved by any team. Detailed statistics are shown in the following table : Problem A J D E[ F G Total _ # of clarification requests 4 3(More)
This study aimed to explore the professional and personal impact that a clinical Masters program of manipulative therapy education had on the lives of individuals who had undertaken the course and was a follow-on study of participants' career pathways following Masters education (Green et al., 2008). Seven graduates from the program took part in a focus(More)
Physiotherapy management of lumbar disorders, based on Mulligan's mobilization techniques, is a treatment of choice by many physiotherapists, however, there is only limited evidence of any neurophysiological effects and much of this has focused on the cervical spine and upper limbs. This study aims to extend the knowledge base underpinning the use of a(More)
