  Title Structural implications of meditation: A review of principles and speculation of chiropractic applications
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1983 Sep;6(3):143-145
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review

A review of meditation techniques indicates that the suppression of inner speech by the use of a "mental devise" may be a key factor in generating the relaxation response of this procedure. It is hypothesized that the suppression of inner speech would release the diaphragm, temporomandibular joint muscles, and hyoid muscles from "symbolic duty." The structural implications of this hypothesis are explored, particularly as they may relate to the treatment of orthopedic disorders commonly seen in chiropractic practices.
