Manual Therapy Effectiveness

A recent study was undertaken by a team of researchers based in the USA and Canada where they studied the results from 111 separate random controlled trials, widely accepted as evidence-based guidelines in the UK and USA.

A total of 26 conditions were identified as having evidence for the use of manual therapy: 13 musculoskeletal conditions, four types of chronic headache and nine non-musculoskeletal conditions.

Spinal manipulation and mobilization are effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain; migraine and cervicogenic headache; and cervicogenic dizziness.   Spinal manipulation and mobilization are also effective for several extremity joint conditions; and thoracic manipulation and mobilization are effective for acute and subacute neck pain.
