Course Description

The spine and joints have a relationship with the viscera. This course will consider this special interface, which opens new possibilities for treatment.

Finding a spine free from fixations is a rarity. To think that an articular blockage is solely of mechanical origin is very far from reality.
Experience shows that it is most often the expression of a visceral or psychological problem. Immediately manipulate by "direct thrust" a fixed vertebral segment which is only a phenomenon of compensation, at best will do nothing, at worst will promote a decompensation, with its train of pain and joint limitation.
The cervical spine is the perfect example where a blockage can come from a visceral, cranial, circulatory, musculo-ligamentary, dur-merian problem.

During this seminar we will study the many parameters that can cause joint fixation both vertebral and peripheral. Diagnosis will be done through listening and inhibition techniques. We will also see how to adapt the best treatment.

Here is what will be covered in this 3-day program

Day 1 - The Cervical Spine

Different parameters that can cause osteo-articular fixation:

The skull and its contents
The dura
The eyes
The sinuses (maxillary, frontal, sphenoidal, ethmoid)
The salivary glands (the parotid)
The dentoalveolar system
The heart, the pericardium
The pleura
The neurovascular system
Liver and gallbladder

Day 2 - The Thoracic Spine

The costal pleura, mediastinal
The heart
Stomach and duodenum
Pulmonary arteries and veins
The ribs
Kidneys (cranial part)

Day 3 - The Lumbar Spine

Kidneys (mediodistal part)
Bladder and uterus
The inguinal canal

Peripheral Joints (among others)

The elbow
