IFOMPT RESPONDS TO AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION CERVICAL MANIPULATION PAPER
Physical Therapists Prepared to Identify Benefits, Risks of Neck Manipulation for Appropriate Patients
New Zealand, August 11, 2014 – The International Federation of Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) appreciates the efforts of the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring to light the benefits and risks of cervical or neck manipulation, but believes the scientific statement released on August 7, 2014 is significantly limited in its scope, context, and ability to reduce the burden of stroke on society and may place unnecessary fear in the public of an effective low risk treatment intervention. The international orthopaedic manual physical therapy community recognises the rare but potentially significant risks associated with cervical manipulation - a treatment that can effectively address conditions such as headache and neck pain that are highly prevalent in our society - and is committed to educating the public about the appropriateness of neck manipulation for individual patients.
