OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the immediate and short-term effects of upper thoracic spine manipulation on pain intensity and myoelectric activity of the sternocleidomastoid muscles in young women with chronic neck pain. METHODS A randomized clinical trial was carried out involving 32 women with chronic neck pain (mean age, 24.8 ± 5.4… CONTINUE READING
