About

The purpose of this study was to investigate the comparative effectiveness of high velocity and low amplitude (HVLA)vs Mobilization (Mob) vs Mobilization with movement technique (MWMT) in sample of patients with chronic neck pain (CNP). Secondly to evaluate the immediate effects in range of motion and pain thresholds, and the interaction between psychological factors and the outcomes of these three types of manual therapy. The hypothesis is that all manual therapies techniques will produce similar effects.

Full description

The randomized controlled trial included patients with mechanically reproducible CNP, ≥ age 18-years who are randomized into three groups of treatment. The main outcome measures were the Visual Analogue scale (VAS), and, with secondary measures of Neck Disability Index (NDI), Global Rating Of Change (GROC), Cervical Range Of Motion (CROM), Pressure Pain Threshold (PPT), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-T), Beck depression Inventory (BDI-II), Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia, Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS).
