COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
we make a suboccipital musculature inhibition technique trying to relax the myodural brigde, and so measure the impact of this technique on the dural tissue and show it using the median neurodynamic test by measuring the range of elbow.
The suboccipital musculature inhibition technique is performed for a total of 3 minutes, estimated time as sufficient so that there is a relaxation of the muscles.
This technique only is perform once in each patient
Intervention code [1] 283810 0
Rehabilitation
Comparator / control treatment
Placebo.
Hip and knee flexion-extension movement from the measure opposite side.
Given that this movement has no influence on the dural structure, must not cause any change in the median nerve neurodynamic test of the subject, so the patient feels that carried out you intervention, thus trying to blind patient.
Control group
Placebo

Outcomes

Study design
Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
envelopes with a number in its interior, assigning the 1 for intervention the 2 for the control
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
The envelopes are interleaved and the patient chooses one.
Given that I only need 40 patients (20 for the intervention group and 20 for the control group), is it is a way forward which I think is fair and out given that each patient has an equal chance to go to one group or another and at the same time maintaining the balance in the number of patients allocated to each group.
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)
