Abstract

We read with interest the study by Shah and Colleagues (Shah et al., 2017), which had measured lumbar paraspinal blood volume (2 minutes pre- and post-) following three different interventions; namely: (1) integrated myofascial techniques; (2) Kinesio Taping; and, (3) control (sham TENS). Paraspinal blood flow/volume was measured using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) at the L3 vertebral level before and after a 30 minute treatment. We completely agree with the authors that NIRS presents a reliable as well as a convenient way to measure skeletal blood flow, especially in a manual therapy setting (Sampath et al., 2017).
