Mobilization alone or with neuroplasticity education in CLBP

Does the explanation behind the manual therapy produce different outcomes on patients with CLBP?

The understanding of the proposed mechanism of manual therapy has gone through a significant shift over the past 2 decades.

Research has shown that physical changes subsequent to manual therapy rarely occur as traditionally thought. Rather the effects are a result of transient neuro-physiological changes.

So, is it possible to expect different outcomes in people with CLBP if you explain the rationale for the manual therapy with the 'updated' model?
