The Need For Speed

I wrote a paper on HVT back in 2002. If I remember correctly, I was trying to put my thoughts in order after a spell teaching technique at the UCO. In draft form, it gathered dust on a shelf at the back of my office.

Tidying things up the other day during some lockdown boredom, I stumbled across it. Leafing through it, it was like looking back through time. It did seem a little rambling, to say the least.

But the intention of the paper was good. Why does manipulation (cavitation) of a spinal joint work best with high speed over a short distance? We had this drummed into us at the UCO. Why not slow speed over a longer distance?

So I’ve taken some ideas out of that paper and freshened them up.
