“Thoraco-Lumbar Fascia Mobility”
The purpose of the Thoraco-Lumbar Fascial Mobility (TLFM) study is to use ultrasound to measure the movement of connective tissue in the low back area of individuals with chronic low back pain (lasting more than 1 year). This study will compare baseline measurements, measurements after a single high velocity low amplitude spinal manipulation (HVLA-SM) and after a course of up to 16 HVLA-SM.
High Velocity Low amplitude spinal manipulation (HVLA-SM)
HVLA-SM is a commonly used spinal manipulation treatment for patients with chronic low back pain.
