Normal human motion is a Tensegrity Field of kinematic chains. The body survives by guided sacrifice of tissues and function. What happens when the technique doesn’t meet the issue in front of you? Join Dr. Walton in exploring creative, responsive ways to adjust every individual patient and guide them back to health.

Hour Topic
1 Introduction: Normal human motion as a Tensegrity Field of kinematic chains and how the body survives by guided SACRIFICE of tissues and function. Evaluation: All techniques try to improve the function and integration of the nervous system. The easiest way to evaluate function and integration of the kinematic chains of the body is by muscle testing. Muscles are organized in functional lines that run superficially and deeply along the body. The muscles are also wrapped in fascial “tubes” that generate vast amounts of afferent nerve information to the brain regarding motion and position sensation. Scanning the body with muscle testing along these functional lines one can find the most functionally impaired areas that many times are old and asymptomatic. Muscle testing: practice techniques and protocols.
2 Pelvis: Discuss the 9 joints and articulations of the pelvis (2 Sacroiliac, 2 Sacral Facet, 2 Coxofemoral, L-5 Disc, Coccyx and pubic Symphysis) and list options of therapeutic techniques. Adjustments: Simple “Category 1” assessment and blocking, Pubic Symphysis superior/Inferior and anterior/posterior joint position error, “Fake PI”: Ilium up-slip with posterior inferior sacrum and a few more adjustments, time permitting.
3 Thoracolumbar Transition: Palpation and Adjusting techniques in the Prone, Supine, Seated, and Side Posture positions.
4 Thoracic Spine: Adjusting to recover rotation and lateral flexion of the thoracic spine. White and Panjabi suggest that the thoracic spine rotates on average four times more and side bends three times more than thoracic flexion and extension. If this is true, adjusting the spine in only the sagittal plane is insufficient to recover full mobility. Adjusting techniques are modifications of standard diversified techniques that emphasize recovery of regional fixations and specific rotational and lateral bending Subluxation.
5 Cervical Spine: a) Palpation and adjusting of the uncovertebral joint of Luschka or uncinate joints. b) Palpation and adjusting of neutral to posterior motion (anterior subluxation) of the cervical facet articulation. c) Modified adjustment for cervical spondylosis and lateral canal stenosis. Studies of chronic neck pain demonstrate that half of the time pain originated from the facet joints and half of the time from the cervical disc. Adjusting both the facet and uncovertebral joint of Luschka are required to clear the cervical spine. Adjusting: Diversified adjustments to the facet and uncovertebral joints.
6 Upper cervical: Palpation and Diversified adjusting of Occiput/C-1, C-1/C-2, C-2/C-3. Adjusting in Prone, supine and seated positions. Adjusting Anterior atlas.
