Summaries of the most recent clinical research involving manipulative therapy are provided for each region (shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand) with links to PUBmed abstracts of relevant clinical studies. Additionally a brief summary of the history of manipulative therapy is presented, as well as definitions of terminology.
OMT UE Features:
