(How the Body is Built)

How something is built has a large effect on how it works — like a car, a house, and your very own spine.

Good function is possible even if something is poorly built.  BUT, the more poorly it is built, the more diligent you must be in caring for it.

The Build of the Skeleton

               We take x-rays to find out how the body is built on the inside.  We are able to find out things like:

  • CurvaturesIs there too much or not enough curve?

        — scoliosis or kyphosis, or an excessive lack of lordosis.

DegenerationAre there bone spurs, degenerated discs?

  • Weight-Bearing – Are parts of the skeleton placed in a way that puts excess strain on the joints,

muscles, ligaments, discs, or nerves?

The Health of the Muscles

       We examine the muscles individually and as groups to find problems with the muscles that can be corrected.

  • StrengthAre the individual muscles strong enough to do the job.  The more you want to use your body the stronger they will need to be.  Also, it is important to remember that an exercise of a specific body part will not always strengthen all the important muscles. It is important to do the correct exercise in the correct way.
  • CoordinationDo the muscles do what they are asked to do when they are asked to do it?
  • Scar TissueScar Tissue can be very severe or it can be just minor Adhesions.  The adhesions, we call them Myofascial Adhesions, exist when layers of tissue get stuck together, like they would with glue.  The procedure we use to release them (or break them up) is call ed myofascial release.  Myofascial release is a deep muscle work combined with a stretching motion a the same time.
