Osteo-articular manipulations

Some joints of the human body are closely linked to visceral organs. Therefore, when confronted with visceral dysfunctions we might easily be mislead to take them for a joint issue, which at first sight is of solely biomechanical nature/quality. However physical reality and her inner relationships are much more complex. This class will bring light to a variety of causes of osteo-articular fixations/joint issues. We will learn to look at articulations from different perspectives: Is it limited by fascial, membranous, ligamentous, or muscular restriction? Or do we find the source of the problem at the level of the nervous or vascular system?
Let’s take a look at the cervical spine as an example: The Phrenic nerve with its origin at C4 forms a magnitude of nerval connections – to the respiratory diaphragm, the Glisson’s capsule of the liver, the pleura and the pericardium. Besides, it can impact the shoulder joint via the cervical and brachial plexus. Besides, there are intricate connections on the mere mechanical level forming a great variety of relations – from the capsule of Glisson via the coronal ligament of the liver to the diaphragm, the pleura and the pericardium. In addition, there is connection to the cervical spine as well to the M. subclavius and the coracobrachial ligaments. To make it even more complex, we need to consider a possible effect of the brachial plexus on the shoulder.
In this class, we will explore manipulations of links/connections between:
-    Cervical spine, thyroid gland, lung and pleura
-    Mid thoracic spine and heart as well as mid thoracic spine and ribs, lower arms and wrists
-    Upper thoracic/lower cervical spine and the female breast
-    Liver, pancreas and shoulder
-    Liver and the cranium on a vascular and nerval level
-    Spleen and ribs
-    Genital system, sacrum, coccyx and lower extremity
-    Thoracic spine and juojenum
-    Lumbar spine and colon
-    Bladder, caecum or sigmoideum and hip joint
