Abstract

Mobilization techniques are commonly employed by manual therapists to treat spinal pain or spinal dysfunction. Many authors postulate different mechanisms by which mobilization techniques can produce positive outcomes involving the sympathetic nervous system, however supporting evidence remains scarce. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
