Placebo response to manual therapy: something out of nothing

Nevner at placebo bør inkluderes som en del av behandling for å maksimere smertedempende effekt og behandlingsresultater.

«We suggest that manual therapists conceptualize placebo not only as a comparative intervention, but also as a potential active mechanism to partially account for treatment effects associated with manual therapy. We are not suggesting manual therapists include known sham or ineffective interventions in their clinical practice, but take steps to maximize placebo responses to reduce pain.»
