Biomechanical studies of spinal manipulative therapy

July 31, 2014

The purpose of this article is to present a review of our research related to spinal manipulative therapy (SMT). The first part of this review will concentrate on studies that were aimed at quantifying possible changes in the mechanics of locomotion associated with SMT. The second part will focus on studies that were aimed at

Pilot study of the impact that bilateral sacroiliac joint manipulation using a drop table technique has on gait parameters in asymptomatic individuals with leg length inequality

May 07, 2014

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to pilot test our study procedures and estimate parameters for sample size calculations for a randomized controlled trial to determine if bilateral sacroiliac (SI) joint manipulation affects specific gait parameters in asymptomatic individuals with a leg length inequality (LLI). Methods: Twenty-one asymptomatic chiropractic students engaged in a baseline
