High impact information on Musculoskeletal Manipulations

  • Placebo-controlled, blind study of dietary manipulation therapy in rheumatoid arthritis [1].
  • The mean +/- SD fall in Northwick Park score at 6 months was 11.5 +/- 15.7 for advice and exercise alone, 10.2 +/- 14.1 for advice and exercise plus manual therapy, and 10.3 +/- 15.0 for advice and exercise plus pulsed shortwave [2].
  • RESULTS: Results of the analysis indicated that participants with relatively high external Headache-Specific Locus of Control scores were more likely to achieve a reduction in headache frequency if they received the combined manipulative therapy and exercise therapy, compared with those who received no treatment [3].
  • Immunoreactive ACTH, beta-endorphin, and cortisol levels in plasma following spinal manipulative therapy [4].
  • The remaining four sections cover general concepts, evaluation schemes, and treatment procedures of four practitioners belonging to different schools of thought in orthopedic manual therapy: James Cyriax, MD, MRCP; Freddy Kaltenborn, DO, RPT; Geoffrey Maitland, MAPA, FCSP; and John McM Mennell, MD [5].

Biological context of Musculoskeletal Manipulations


Associations of Musculoskeletal Manipulations with chemical compounds

  • The 16 physiotherapists, all members of the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine, utilized three spinal manipulative therapy patterns in the RCT: Maitland Mobilization (40.4%, n = 59), Maitland Mobilization/Cyriax Manipulation (40.4%, n = 59) and Cyriax Manipulation (19.1%, n = 28) [7].
  • Twelve patients with advanced prostatic carcinoma and relapse following previous hormone manipulation therapy were treated with Zoladex-depot every 4 weeks [8].
  • They were randomly allocated to a reference group treated with the stay-active concept and, in some cases, muscle stretching and an experimental group receiving manual therapy and, in some cases, steroid injections in addition to the stay-active concept [9].
