Mar 18, 2011 No Comments by

Neck pain continues to be a prevalent condition in our society. Manual therapy (hands on
techniques for the treatment of neck pain is an intervention commonly implemented in
clinical practice. Recently researchers and clinicians have implemented manual therapy
techniques to the thoracic spine (midback) to treat patients with neck pain. To date no
studies have examined the short-term combined effects of thoracic spine manual therapy and
cervical spine manual therapy in the treatment of patients with mechanical neck pain. The
purpose this study is to assess the combined effects of thoracic spine thrust manipulation
with cervical spine non-thrust manipulation in patients with neck pain.
