STUDY DESIGN Twenty asymptomatic volunteers each received three spinal manipulative treatments to the thoracic spine. The treatments consisted of a straight posterior-to-anterior high-speed, low-amplitude thrust to the transverse process of T3-T10 using a reinforced hypothenar contact. All treatments were given by a full-time practicing clinician with 3 years of experience. OBJECTIVES The primary objective of this study was to quantify local measures of loading applied by the clinician on the… CONTINUE READING
