March 2018 Article Exchange with JOSPT
In 2015, JBJS launched an “article exchange” collaboration with the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT) to support multidisciplinary integration, continuity of care, and excellent patient outcomes in orthopaedics and sports medicine.
During the month of March 2018, JBJS and OrthoBuzz readers will have open access to the JOSPT article titled “Pragmatically Applied Cervical and Thoracic Nonthrust Manipulation versus Thrust Manipulation for Patients with Mechanical Neck Pain: A Multicenter Randomized Clinical Trial.”
To thrust or not to thrust–that was the question investigated among 103 patients with mechanical neck pain in this randomized trial. Thrust and nonthrust manipulation produced equivalent outcomes.
