Treating the Neck Before Touching It

Over my 40 plus years in practice, I have seen suffering patients get great relief by the application of this strategy. Their biggest relief was the fact that it was not necessary to actually touch their neck to obtain some freedom of motion and reduction of pain.

George Goodheart, DC, founder and developer of Applied Kinesiology said, “Where it is it usually ain’t”. This presentation introduces the therapist to the power of understanding and applying the Laws of Physiology to “sneak in the back door” neurologically to address neck complaints. Utilizing strategies of postural examination, manual muscle testing, Davis' Law and "relationing", the therapist will appreciate the influences that structures distal to the neck may have on neck function and pain. It has been my experience over the years of employing this knowledge that hidden factors in a person’s complaints have been uncovered that have resulted in faster and longer-lasting results.

In this presentation the attendee will be shown how applying a known Law of Physiology to structures distal to the neck will have effects on neck function. The attendee will also experience, first-hand, changes in neck ROMs and the reduction of pain after the therapeutic application.

By applying this information, this Law of Physiology, you can “trick” the nervous system into relaxing tense, hypertonic neck muscles neurologically…and then you will be able to re-position your structure and, applying Davis’ Law, re-establish the potential for pain- free, efficient movement.

In this seminar you will learn:

  • Differential evaluation between Levator Scapula vs Upper Trapezius involvement.
  • Forward Head Posture (FHP) effects on posture, neck function, headaches and more.
  • Laws of Physiology and how to APPLY them in your clinical setting for increased results and increased client compliance/repeat visits.
  • Manual Muscle Testing to both verify the results of your therapy AND to reinforce and verify your results with your clients.

Please know the Origin, Insertion and Actions of the following muscles:

  • Serratus Anterior
  • Latissimus Dorsi
  • Upper Trapezius
  • Levator Scapula
  • Pectoralis Minor
  • Deltoid

I am looking forward to sharing this knowledge with you!
