Immediate effects of spinal manipulative therapy on clinical and biomechanical outcomes in participants with chronic thoracic pain.
[Update] The objective of this study is twofold. Data from four separate cross-sectional studies were analyzed together in order to compare participant characteristics, such as anthropometrics, age and gender with spinal stiffness. A secondary objective explores differences in outcome measures obtained with different spinal stiffness testing devices and protocols. Lead: Isabelle Pagé
centre of rotation study
A scoping review looking at biomechanical testing investigating the center of rotation location on the lumbar spine is currently being conducted. From the results of this scoping review, a biomechanical testing study will be designed to investigate the influence of center of rotation location on the forces experienced by spinal tissues.
