A 2012 review of available literature regarding CST supporting its potential efficacy. “A previously conducted systematic review did not obtain valid scientific evidence that CST was beneficial to patients…. This review revealed the paucity of CST research in patients with different clinical pathologies. CST assessment is feasible in RCTs and has the potential of providing valuable outcomes to further support clinical decision making. However, due to the current moderate methodological quality of the included studies, further research is needed.”
