APTA challenges AHA report on 'association' between CMT and stroke
from PT in Motion
A recent American Heart Association statement that cervical manipulation may "play a role" in stroke fails to consider how physical therapist clinical judgment can reduce this risk, and overlooks the fact that manipulation is associated with far fewer complications than drug-based and surgical interventions, according to a news release from APTA. The AHA statement focused on an analysis of strokes caused by cervical arterial dissections.
