Reference:Reference: Cowell M, Phillips D 2002 Effectiveness of manipulative physiotherapy for the treatment of a neurogenic cervicobrachial pain syndrome: a single case study-experimental design. Manual Therapy 7 (1): 31-38
This was a well-controlled single case study used to evaluate the effectiveness of the lateral glide mobilizations on a woman with an 8-month history of upper limb pain and neural tissue machanosensitivity,
Magnetic resonance imaging also showed correlating pathology at the C5-6 level.
Study Conclusion: This study demonstrated that 4-weeks of lateral glide mobilizations had significant beneficial effects on pain, functional disability and cervical and shoulder mobility in a patient with chronic neural irritation. These improvements were maintained even at the one-month follow-up.
