Sunghee Joo, Yongwoo Lee, Chang-Ho Song
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the immediate effects of thoracic spinal manipulation (TSM) on pulmonary function in stroke patients. METHODS: Thirty-six volunteers with stroke (20 men, 16 women) were recruited and randomized to a TSM group (n = 18) and a sham group (n = 18). All participants underwent initial pulmonary function test and then rested supine for 10 minutes before the intervention. Pulmonary function test was repeated immediately after the intervention...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to document the baseline neurophysiological status (skin conductance activity levels) of patients presenting for physiotherapy with acute and subacute low back pain (symptoms of up to 12 weeks' duration) and to observe the magnitude and direction of sympathetic nervous system (SNS) changes (skin conductance responses [SCRs]) occurring as a result of receiving guideline-endorsed physiotherapy treatment. METHODS: A pragmatic, prospective, longitudinal, observational study recording SNS skin conductance (SC) responses and patient reported outcome measure changes to a program of guideline-endorsed physiotherapy treatment for low back pain symptoms of up to 12 weeks' duration...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to compare pericranial tenderness of females with episodic cervical headache vs matched asymptomatic controls. METHODS: Through a single-blind, cross-sectional study, pericranial tenderness was compared between 20 females with episodic cervical headaches (29.4 ± 13.2 years) and 20 age-matched female asymptomatic controls (30.1 ± 13.7 years). Pericranial tenderness was bilaterally measured in a headache-free period with the "total tenderness score" (TTS) in the suboccipital, temporal, frontal, masseter, upper trapezius (UT), levator scapula, and sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle insertions...

OBJECTIVES: Mortality rates due to adverse drug events (ADEs) are escalating in the United States. Analgesics are among the drug classes most often associated with occurrence of an ADE. Utilization of nonpharmacologic chiropractic services for treatment of low back pain could lead to reduced risk of an ADE. The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the association between utilization of chiropractic services and likelihood of an ADE. METHODS: We employed a retrospective cohort design to analyze health insurance claims data from the state of New Hampshire...
