International accessibility of clinical practice guidelines in Physical Therapy makes it possible for Physical Therapists to use guidelines as a reference for treating their patients. At a national level, countries could endorse guidelines, and adjust guidelines to their local situation if necessary. It also makes international collaboration possible in further development and in the updating process of guidelines.

Mulligan Traction Straight Leg Raise: A Pilot Study to Investigate Effects on Range of Motion in Patients with Low Back Pain
Posted by Rob in Musculoskeletal
Mulligan mobilization techniques are frequently used in clinical practice but there is little evidence underlying their use. The aims of this study were to determine the immediate effects of the Mulligan traction straight leg raise technique (TSLR) on range of straight leg raise (SLR) in subjects with low back pain (LBP). A further aim was to determine whether the presence of lower-quarter mechano-sensitive neural tissue influenced the outcome. It is concluded that the results provide preliminary evidence for the use of the Mulligan TSLR technique in the management of LBP, when a limitation of SLR is present; however, further controlled studies are required to substantiate these findings.
