STUDY DESIGN Analytic cohort with a convenience sample in a research clinic. OBJECTIVES To determine the influence of a spinal manipulation on trunk kinematics and associated trunk myoelectric activity. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND While the mechanism of spinal manipulation is unknown, it has been theorized to influence spinal range of motion and trunk muscle activity. METHODS Trunk kinematics were measured in low back pain patients (n = 14) during simple range of motion tasks in three planes… CONTINUE READING
