Is neurogenic mobilization using the ULTTa beneficial for subjects with CTS?

Sure it is... as the Upper Limb Neural Tension 1 focuses on the median nerve and although many therapists only use parts of the neural tension test(supination with wrist/finger extension and elbow extension)to use as treatment for CTS, the remainder of the test can be used as well to include the shoulder abduction, ER and cervical lateral flexion components.

How about carpal manipulation and TSA manipulation in these cases? Is there room to consider the regional interdepence model in these cases?
