Effect of Osteopathic Visceral Manipulation on Pain, Cervical Range of Motion, and Upper Trapezius Muscle Activity in Patients with Chronic Nonspecific Neck Pain and Functional Dyspepsia: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Pilot Study
Mean and standard deviation of the muscle fiber conduction velocity (MFCV) and electromyographic amplitude (RMSg) of the upper trapezius muscle recorded pretreatment (T1) immediate posttreatment (T2) and 7 days after treatment (T3) with osteopathic visceral manipulation (OVMG) or placebo visceral manipulation (PVMG). The data were obtained with 30% of the maximum voluntary contraction from the shoulder elevation. Significant difference in relation to T1. # Significant difference between group.
