Paradigm shift in manual therapy?

Segmental neurological modulation, neural hysteresis and biomechanical effects have been proposed as mechanisms underpinning
the effects of manual therapy. An increasing number of studies hypothesise activation of the central nervous system resulting in a
non-segmental hypoalgesic effect with concurrent activation of other neural pathways as a potential mechanism of action. Whether
this model is consistent with the current literature is unknown.
