Interexaminer concordance for motion-based palpation of the middle and lower cervical spine was investigated. The palpatory task consisted of determining whether end-range joint resistance on lateral flexion was greater on one side of a given cervical segment when compared to that of the contralateral joint. Palpators also were asked to indicate the relative magnitude of the asymmetry, when detected. All experiments were carried out using reasonably healthy, pain-free, chiropractic college… CONTINUE READING
