And Now for some news ….
Neural Responses to Spinal Manipulation
A study was published in the journal Manual Therapy to determine how contact site for high velocity, low amplitude spinal manipulation (HVLA-SM) affects sensory input to the central nervous system.
Systematic investigations are needed identifying how variability in the biomechanical characteristics of spinal manipulation affects physiological responses. Such knowledge may inform future clinical practice and research study design.
high velocity, low amplitude spinal manipulation was applied to 4 specific anatomic locations using a no- high velocity, low amplitude spinal manipulation control at each location randomized in an 8×8 Latin square design in an animal model.
The study concluded that this animal study showed that contact site for an high velocity, low amplitude spinal manipulation can have a significant effect on the magnitude of sensory input arising from muscle spindles in the back.

Spinal Discs and Enzyme Treatment
Condoliase, an enzyme that degrades glycosaminoglycans, was well-tolerated by patients who received it as a treatment for lumbar disc herniations, according to a speaker here.
“Condoliase significantly improved symptoms and signs, physical function and quality of life scores in patients with lumbar disc herniations,” according to a presentation at the EuroSpine Annual Meeting.
The most common adverse event in the study was back pain, which was more evident in the condoliase group (36.6%) than the placebo group (33.3%), but most events were rated as mild or moderate.
Remember to discuss all treatment options with your Qualified Health Care Professional, including use of Spinal Manipulation.
