Trojan effort...grade five baby!

Early in my career I was very shy about grade five maneuvers in the clinic. I am still very cautious about their use in the cervical spine, and often find thoracic manipulations to be just as useful.

However I felt this demonstration of a lower cervical grade V from our colleagues at USC was worth showing! I particularly like the off-camera "eek!" from the female PT student after the technique.

Nice job Trojans!

  1. The lower cervical/upper thoracic is the hardest for me, looks like a good technique!
