This week, we recommend taking a look at an abstract that was published in June 2016: Neuromechanical response to spinal manipulation therapy: effects of a constant rate of force application. Why do I think this one matters? Well…physics. It all comes back to physics. Speed. Velocity. Amplitude. All words that made my head spin during college… Continue reading Abstract of the Week: Neuromechanical response to spinal manipulation therapy: effects of a constant rate of force application.

We can’t prove either of them, but it’s… Continue reading The SI Joint Upslip Part 2

I got comments in response – inevitably looking for the evidence – what references I had to support my contention. Well, I don’t have any references. I’m… Continue reading The SI Joint Upslip…

So…we have to find alternate employment in order to finance our vices. In my case, I daylight as… Continue reading The Future is Bright…
By: Brett Windsor PT, PhDc, MPA, OCS, FAAOMPT For the last twelve years, manipulation has enjoyed the best of seats in the physical therapy house.
