Curator: Greg Kawchuk BSc DC MSc PhD

Contributors: Martin Descarreaux DC, PhD, Shawn Thistle BKin DC.

The following list was complied to create an overarching representative of the topic. Biomechanical effects of manual therapy include a wide range of outcomes including spinal stiffness, range of motion, kinematics as well as muscle and joint biomechanics. The following list provides a combination of recent and pioneering work related to the biomechanical effects resulting from manual therapy. This list is in no particular order and many other interesting papers are available. We welcome your suggestions and comments.
