Expectations on the Day


Six testers were picked at Random and screened for the same biomechanical incongruencies at the cranium, manubrium, and second thoracic ring. All other Volunteers will be lying supine on the plinth.  There is no physical activity within this study.

All volunteers must arrive 10 minutes before their allocated slot for the study to commence immediately. Online Waivers must be completed online prior to the start of the study.  The premise of this study is to explore if when Manual Therapists complete positional testing on a Patient, are there any other confounding variables that may contribute to the measure outcome.

No expense’s can be paid for volunteers in this Study.
