Paradigm shift in manual therapy? Evidence for a central nervous system component in the response to passive cervical joint mobilisation.

Abstract

Segmental neurological modulation, neural hysteresis and biomechanical effects have been proposed as mechanisms underpinning the effects of manual therapy. An increasing number of studies hypothesise activation of the central nervous system resulting in a non-segmental hypoalgesic effect with concurrent activation of other neural pathways as a potential… (More)
