Whelan G, Johnston R, Millward C, Edwards DJ. The immediate effect of osteopathic cervical mobilization on median nerve mechanosensitivity: a triple-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial [published online May 18, 2017]. J Bodyw Mov Ther. doi:10.1016/j.jmbt.2017.05.009 
Osteopathic researchers in the United Kingdom performed cervical mobilization from C2 to T1 and then assessed range of motion (ROM) at the elbow joint bilaterally using median nerve upper limb neurodynamic test (ULNT) positioning of the upper limb. The triple-blind design called for separate individuals to perform the 3 phases of the experiment: 1 to perform cervical mobilization, 1 to perform the ULNT positioning, and 1 to measure ROM at the elbow joint.
