Abstract

This study tested the relationship between change in NDI scores after 3 weeks of strengthening exercise and response to strengthening exercise at the final assessment. A change in the NDI of 7 points after 3 weeks correctly classified 93.2% of participants that would display a positive change at the final assessment. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
