Kingston, L., Claydon, L., & Tumilty, S. (2014). The effects of spinal mobilizations on the sympathetic nervous system: A systematic review. Manual Therapy, 19(4), 281–287.

This systematic review evaluates the effect of spinal manipulations on the sympathetic nervous system. 7 studies are included in the review, and all of them were high quality according to the PEDRO scale. Findings indicate that spinal manipulations result in an increase in excitatory sympathetic activity, regardless of the segment mobilized.
