A comprehensive mobile companion providing manipulative techniques for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine presented in the context of best current evidence for use in treating spine disorders. Step by step written instructions, high-quality video demonstration with audio, indications for use, and evidence to support each technique.
Summaries of the most recent clinical research involving manipulative therapy are provided for each spine region (cervical, lumbar, and thoracic) with links to PUBmed abstracts of relevant clinical studies.
