We do not have publications with great impact factor.

And we understand the need to improve methodology and research related to the topic.

I posted on the topic what we have made available so far.

Thank you for your attention.

The third study at the first link has a treated sample cohort of 15, the quoted measure of 'pain' is subjective and the observed angles (given to 1/10th degree measurement accuracy) have a statistical range of a few degrees on a claimed effect only slightly larger. Also, I remain unsure how the physiotherapist was also 'blinded' by the protocol - perhaps you could explain further (it could be that I didn't understand the quoted method correctly)?

Since you expect results from micro-physio, it would be prudent to observe kilo-, or better mega-, numbers of volunteers.

At this early stage, confidence in the reported conclusions remains low.
