Joint therapy



The greater or lesser functional blockages of the joints results in the joints and the surrounding structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments) becoming stiff. This leads to shrinkage (atrophy) and shortening of the musculature, faulty positioning of the joints (contractures) and inadequate circulation of the blood. Mobility is further restricted and a "normal" physiological position and movement of the body are no longer possible.   It is intended that the stiff joints be mobilized by modified neurophysiological correction in such a way that their mobility is lastingly improved.   The large joints are treated first, then smaller joints (for example, hip, knee and foot joints). The joint is passively moved out of its neutral position (normal position) within its physiological radius of movement. This movement is supported by pulling and pressing on the joint and musculature, thus additionally increasing the scope of movement. Whereas larger joints are also relaxed by means of sudden blows to the joint cavities, smaller joints are relaxed by successive, very rapid movements (fibrillation). The intensity of the manipulations is increased in the course of the treatment.   Results: Extension of the volume of movement of the joints at the extremities, stretching of the musculature and ligaments, relaxation of faulty joint positioning, improvement in circulation of the blood and the flow of lymph with accompanying optimum nutritional supply of the joints, even leading to spurts of growth.
