This is honest, practical empiricism, acceptable whenever the contraindications have been excluded. The practice, not uncommon among chiropractors, of prescribing a long series of treatments (33) is quite indefensible. Indeed it is common for vertebral manipulation to dispel the problem in one session (in one uncontrolled series of 1037 patients over 52% in the neck and 23% in the lumbar spine), and very common in three sessions (in the same series over 83% in the neck and 66% in the lumbar spine) (8).
Foremost, they complain of pain. Limitation of spinal movement often accompanies pain, either because there appears to be a mechanical block, or because movement, in one direction or another, exacerbates the pain, or as a result of muscle spasm itself often causing pain. This may present as a disturbance of posture, of gait, or of other attempted movement. Inevitably it constitutes a disability. The patients are prevented from performing to their accustomed standard – at work, at play, or in bed.
I have already pointed out that the great majority of dangers may be avoided by strict adherence to the contraindications to vertebral manipulation. One review worth quoting covered 135 cases of severe complication; 50% were in the cervical spine, and 26 of the total cases were due to frank misdiagnosis. A further ﬁnding of interest was TEACHING MUSCULOSKELETAL MEDICINE 47 that the problems occurred more often when performed with the patient under general anaesthesia (49). The latter ﬁnding accords with our teaching on the subject; with the patient under general anaesthesia the doctor is inevitably denied the most important of all the contraindications – the patient’s report of increased pain on setting it up or taking up the slack.
