In the third group, there were 67 healthy participants without back pain and without MEIS CK therapy. All 173 participants underwent MEIS CK tests three times during our research, which included 46 standard physiotherapy tests. The effect of MEIS CK therapy was assessed using the H score. Improvement after the therapy was defined by a reduction in the H score by at least 1 point. Data were statistically...
