World Class Manual Therapy


Medical manual therapy is dying art. Ironically enough I am seeing chiropractors using less hands and more machines such as vibration and instruments. This is a problem. I understand that manual therapy is demanding on the body, but nothing beats good hands. Good hands can become great hands with practice but much of it is a gift. The ability to feel tissue or restrictions in joints is a talent that takes years to develop. This past weekend I observed some fascinating therapy hybrids such as eccentric motion cyriax work, dual therapist fascial release for hip alignment, and some partner stretching that resembles AIS, RFST, and even a little ballet if you will. The future is looking at what people were doing in the past before the adjustment guns and civil war tools we see today. Another book I am reading this summer on the plane will be Manual of Structural Kinesiology by Floyd.
