How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a common condition lacking strong diagnostic criteria; these criteria continue to evolve as more and more studies are performed to explore it. This investigation sought to identify whether participants with FMS have more frequent and larger postural/spinal displacements in comparison to a matched control group without...
Background: Although different types of neural mobilization (NM) exercises induce different amounts of longitudinal nerve excursion and strain, the question whether the increased longitudinal stress and nerve excursion from sliding or tensioning intervention may subtly affect the neural functions has not been answered yet. Objective: To compare...
Aim: To explore the effect of variable stretching intervals on neural function and ROM. Design: Double blind randomized controlled trial. Setting: University research laboratory. Population: One hundred participants, 60-65 years old, with a diagnosis of tight hamstring muscles, bilaterally, were randomly assigned to either a control group or...
Context: Sagittal-plane cervical spine alignment has emerged as one of the most important clinical outcomes in health care. Nevertheless, the quantity and quality of research on the role that cervical sagittal alignment plays in improving sensorimotor and autonomic nervous functions are limited. Objective: To investigate the immediate and long-t...
Objective: To explore the effect of variable durations of stretching on neural function, pain, and algometric pressure in patients with chronic myofascial pain syndrome. Design: Randomized controlled trial. Patients: A total of 100 participants diagnosed with chronic myofascial pain syndrome were randomly assigned to a control group or 1 of 3...
Background: There is a growing interest concerning the understanding of the sagittal configuration of the cervical spine as a clinical outcome. However, evaluating sensorimotor control and autonomic nervous system for participants with forward head posture (FHP) compared to strictly matched control participants with normal head alignment has not b...
To investigate the conservative care effects of true spine correction of abnormal Sagittal plane profiles. By comparing standard spine rehabilitation care (SMT, Massage, Functional Based Exercise, etc.) to standard care plus care known to truly correct the structure of the spine (structural rehabilitation care), we can test whether or not interventional care specifically derived from abnormal radiographic findings makes a difference to patient relevant outcomes. We plan to investigate corrective care vs. standard care outcomes for a variety of common patient chronic conditions: back pain, leg pain, neck pain, headaches, arm pain, dizziness, etc...
