This video demonstrates a rotation manipulation of the C7/T1 with the patient sitting. The technique initially looks a little complex but if the explanation is followed then the technique can be extremely successful, is non traumatic and ultra specific. One point to remember don't loose the side bending, otherwise the rotation increases too much. Typically the side bending is lost as anterior rotation is introduced so the side bending needs to be added a second time after the anterior translation!
