thrust manipulation AND skin conductance

Eric J Hegedus, Adam Goode, Robert J Butler, Emily Slaven
Studies detailing the neurophysiological effects of spinal manual therapy have fueled a paradigm shift away from a strict biomechanical model. However, a recent systematic review of the temporal nature of a single session of spinal thrust manipulation found that the neurophysiological effects were only temporary. The objective of this review was to examine the temporal nature of neurophysiological effects after one session of spinal mobilization. Studies eligible for this review had to report on the temporal component of the neurophysiological effects of a single session of joint mobilization of the spine in human subjects...

OBJECTIVE: Digitized infrared segmental thermometry (DIST) is a tool used for measuring cutaneous temperature (CT). This project ascertains the effect of a manually assisted mechanical force producing a chiropractic adjustment in the lumbar spine after the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique on CT during 2 different time recording periods (TRPs). METHODS: Sixty-six healthy subjects (36 women and 30 men) without acute low back conditions or symptoms were recruited...

Nine types of mechanoreceptors of hair skin in 46 rabbits were identified by recording discharges of single afferent fiber in posterior femoral cutaneous nerve from fine filaments by dissection. When seven manipulations, i.e. lift and thrust, twist and twirl, rotate, serape, flike the needle and finger-pressure were used to stimulate each receptor, their responsive discharges were observed. Data at 165 units were collected totally, 89 units in which were for the relation between manipulations and discharge patterns, and the other 76 units for discharges responding to manipulations at different distances from the receptive field...
