Does Spinal Manipulation Improve Pulmonary Function?

 Thoracic spinal manipulation may improve pulmonary function in stroke patients. In this study, researchers tested the pulmonary function of 36 stroke patients before and after they received either a thoracic spinal adjustment or a sham treatment. The participants in the thoracic manipulation group experienced significant improvements in forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume at one second.
