Overview:

This course described a critical review of the safety and applicability of spinal manual therapy for people with osteoporosis by reviewing biomechanical and clinical literature.

The force produced on the spine during manual therapy varies widely. The three identified clinical studies reviewed reported few adverse events with Grade III/IV mobilizations, and participants experienced some benefits to pain and function.
