Spinal manipulation, is the use of traditional high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust. The manipulation often results in an audible “pop,” as practitioners use their hands to apply a controlled sudden force to a joint while the body is positioned in a specific way
Medical acupuncture’s method of treatment is to place a dry needle into an area of pain, as near to the centre as possible, and to manipulate the area to elicit a local twitch response. This release contains a mixture of agents, such as endorphins.

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.
It is used in many NHS general practices, as well as the majority of pain clinics and hospices in the UK.
Acupuncture is often seen as a form of complementary or alternative medicine (CAM).
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which provides guidelines for the NHS on the use of treatments and care of patients, currently recommends acupuncture as a treatment for chronic tension-type headaches and migraines.

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues).
The psychological effects and benefits of sports massage
One of the best reasons to get a sports massage is to help your muscles, tendons and joints move through their proper range of motion and stay in optimum shape. It's just like that pre-workout warm-up you're supposed to do. You want your muscles to be pliable and your joints warmed up before your exercise.
