#Flash: Study finds, Spinal manual therapy is Effective in P
Increasing evidence has shown benefits of spinal manipulations in patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). 43 patients with PFPS were randomly assigned to a local exercise or spinal manual therapy group. Pain and functionality improved more, following spinal manipulative therapy than local exercise therapy. Results showed that after 6weeks of intervention the between-group difference (local versus spinal) for maximal pain was 23.4mm and 12.4 for the AKPS. This study suggested that spinal manual therapy is more effective than local exercise therapy in improving pain and function in patients with PFPS in the medium term.
