The purpose

The mechanism responsible for improvement following manual physical therapy techniques is unknown. Previous studies have indicated both biomechanical and neurophysiologic effects which may be responsible for clinical changes observed. Yet, other studies report clinical changes following sham interventions. Through a mixed-methods design, this study aims to gain more understanding of the social and contextual factors that may be related to the improvement often observed following manual therapy techniques.
