|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Respiratory Disease||Other: Manual technique Other: Placebo||Not Applicable|
Randomized controlled trial. Participants are classified in two groups and they are assessed using pulmonary functions parameters and thoracic and spinal movements.
There are two interventions: placebo and a manual technique. Participants will be assessed again at the end of the study.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||60 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
30 people are recruited in order to the inclusion criteria for the study. Placebo controlled.
Other Name: No intervention
Active Comparator: Manual technique
30 people are recruited in order to the inclusion criteria for the study. Experimental group.
Other: Manual technique
A manual technique is employed in the intervention group based on passive movement and stretching of the respiratory system.
The manual technique includes:
stretching of diaphragm. Mobilization. Potentiation of the respiratory muscles.
Other Name: Manual therapy.
- spirometry parameters [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months ]Change from baseline to postintervention in spirometry parameters (Vital capacity, Forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), Tidal volume)using a spirometer as recommended by the American Thoracic Society.
- thoracic movement [ Time Frame: at baseline, 6 months ]Changes from baseline to postintervention in thoracic movement, measured by tape measure in 3 thoracic levels.
- Changes on Functionality scores [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 months ]Functional status questionnaire used before and after intervention to measure functionality scores change.
- Changes on cardiorespiratory capacity [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 months ]Changes on cardiorespiratory capacity measured by 6MWT (6 minutes walking test)at baseline and post intervention.
- spinal movement [ Time Frame: at baseline, 6 months ]Changes from baseline to postintervention in spinal movement, measured by Range of motion with goniometer.
