  Title The efficiency of multiple impulse therapy for musculoskeletal complaints
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2006 Feb;29(2):Online access only 9 p
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to document the response of patients to multiple impulse therapy for a variety of musculoskeletal complaints encountered in clinical practice.

METHODS: A single practitioner in a private clinic setting provided the therapy to 249 patients. Survival analysis was used to plot probability of pain vs the days required for symptom resolution for each of 8 patient complaints. Analysis of variance was used to examine the influence of covariates such as age, sex, body mass index, and chronicity.

RESULTS: The average number of visits required to achieve a pain-free state for each of 8 patient symptoms, the half-life for response to multiple impulse therapy, and comparison of the results of published studies of low back and neck pain are presented.

CONCLUSION: Response of patients in the study sample to multiple impulse therapy for symptoms of low back and neck pain appeared to be considerably faster than that obtained in 3 recent studies.
