This video demonstrates an unusual modification of the side lying Lumbar manipulation technique to the Thoraco-Lumbar joint. The patient is positioned similar to a recovery position or a 'semi-simms' lower rib stretching position. Due to the 'reverse' rotation movement used it is actually a safe technique for the Lumbar region but care of the patients shoulder girdle movement should be taken into consideration.
