Spinal Manipulation 104: LBP Clinical Trials / 1 Credit
- Illustrate the importance of positive within- and between-session
‘patient response’ as a potential prognostic indicator for outcomes in
low back pain patients.
- Determine if early application of thrust manipulation (SMT) is more
effective than early application of non-thrust mobilization in patients
with mechanical low back pain (LBP).
- Justify the use of regional versus non-regional use of spinal manipulation (SMT) in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP).
- Examine the relation between improved disability and changes in the
lumbar multifidus and abdominal thickness following two spinal
manipulation (SMT) treatments in patients with low back pain (LBP).
- Identify the optimal dose (number of visits) of spinal manipulation (SMT) for the care of chronic low back pain (cLBP).
- Can a Within or Between-Session Change in Pain Predict Outcomes for Manual Therapy Treatment of Low Back Pain?
- Early Use of Thrust vs. Non-Thrust Manipulation for Low Back Pain
- Immediate Effects of Region-Specific vs. Non-Region-Specific SMT for Chronic LBP
- Association Between Lumbar SMT & Abdominal/Multifidus Thickness & Clinical Improvement
- Dose-Response & Efficacy of Spinal Manipulation for Chronic Low Back Pain
