  Title The role of specific manipulation towards alleviating abnormalities in body mechanics and restoration of spinal motion
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1982 Mar;5(1):11-15
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This article presents a theoretical model based on previously published chiropractic theories and clinical experience. The thesis proposes a comparison of specific dynamically diagnosed manipulative procedure with non-specific statically determined mobilization. The proposed mechanism also theoretically provides a means by which one can determine areas of segmental motion-disturbance necessitating specific correction, as well as identifying areas where adjusting might be contraindicated. Theoretical considerations based on the model are then used to predict consequences of such procedures on hypermobility, fixation, correction efficacy, and side effects. Since the predictions can be tested experimentally, the model provides a basis for researching chiropractic theories and clinical options.
