My colleague Greg Lehman, who teaches the very popular and highly recommended Reconciling Biomechanic with Pain Science recently re-posted this video on his twitter. It's (gasp) a review of an older study, but when studies results are significant for changing your thought process and simplifying your manual therapy treatments, they should still be considered.
This mainly applies to joint mobilization, which I call "joint stimulation." After all, the connotation of "mobilization" is that you are somehow causing mechanical changes to the joint capsule; from what we know of the magnitude of forces required, and resultant lack of tissue changes, is most likely not happening.
I really like the video below because it demonstrates how to simplify joint techniques and also the best way to stimulate joint mechanoreceptors. Check it out, it's informative and entertaining as always.
