You are treating a patient with acute cervical spine pain.  You are considering thrust manipulations for the upper cervical and thoracic spine.  What does the literature support for this intervention?

  1. In question 121, are you sure of the wording of treating the upper C/S with manips and thoracic manips for a Pt with thoracic pain? Thoracic manips may help upper C/S but upper C/S manips don’t likely help T/S??

  2. Thanks Richard for leaving the comment. After reviewing the reference article, you are correct. The wording of the question should’ve stated you are treating a patient with cervical spine pain… we will get on changing that. I have attached the reference article link. Happy Studies!!
