High-velocity low-amplitude manipulation (HVLA) VS. Mobilization exercises in subjects presenting with mechanical neck pain.

Martinez-sequra R et al (2006) did a RCT to analyze the immediate effects on neck pain and active cervical range of motion after a single cervical high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) manipulation or a control mobilization procedure in mechanical neck pain subjects. The result suggested, a single cervical HVLA manipulation was more effective in reducing neck pain at rest and in increasing active cervical range of motion than a control mobilization procedure in subjects suffering from mechanical neck pain.
