Mechanisms of SMT & Manual Therapy 101 / 1 Credit

Price: $19.95

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the effect of a standardized SMT application on load distribution within spinal tissues
  2. Summarize the evidence that would offer mechanistic explanations for the changes in spinal stiffness observed following spinal manipulative therapy
  3. Discuss the modulatory effects of spinal manipulation on brain activation associated with anticipated pain and fear of physical exercise in chronic low back pain patients
  4. Examine the effectiveness of manual therapies for musculoskeletal pain on stability
  5. Investigate short-term changes in pain-pressure threshold (PPT) and temporal summation (TS) after lumbar spinal manipulation (SMT) compared to a credible sham intervention
