Lumbopelvic joint manipulation has been shown to increase quadriceps force output and activation, but the duration of effect is unknown. It is also unknown whether lower grade joint mobilisations may have a similar effect. Forty-two healthy volunteers (x+/-SD; age=28.3+/-7.3 yr; ht=172.8+/-9.8 cm; mass=76.6+/-21.7 kg) were randomly assigned to one of three groups (lumbopelvic joint manipulation, 1 min lumbar passive range of motion (PROM), or prone extension on elbows for 3 min).
