Evidence for Decreased Neurologic Pain Signature Activation Following Thoracic Spinal Manipulation in Healthy Volunteers and Participants with Neck Pain NeuroImage: Clinical

-Spinal pain, affecting nearly one billion individuals worldwide, remains a leading cause of disability. Spinal manipulation, a common treatment for neck and back pain, is theorized to induce therapeutic mechanical changes in the spine. However, recent research suggests that its effects may extend beyond the mechanical realm, influencing pain-related brain activity. A groundbreaking study, utilizing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), delves into the intricate relationship between thoracic spinal manipulation and pain perception.
