dc.description.abstractAims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine whether spinal manipulation affects the perceived performance of runners with low back pain. More specifically, the objective was to determine whether any relationships existed between spinal manipulation, a runner’s perceived performance and their low back pain. Method: Twenty subjects who ran thirty kilometers a week and had LBP were selected for a pre- post- cohort study according to criteria set out beforehand. The subjects received spinal manipulation applied to their lower back twice a week for a period of two weeks. At each consultation, they were requested to fill out a “Perception of Running Performance” questionnaire prior to each treatment, and one week following the final consultation.en
