HVLA cervical spinal manipulation is contraindicated with acute concussion symptoms! [fragile patients] Avoid the type of spinal manipulation for which the risk seems greatest: forceful manipulation of the upper spine with a rotational element "Spinal manipulation: its safety is uncertain". Ernst E (January 2002). CMAJ 166 (1): 401. PMC 99224. PMID 11800245. the potential to expose patients to vertebral artery damage can be avoided with the use of mobilization (non-thrust passive movements). Di Fabio R (1999).

Fuzz (adhesions) interlayer fascia bonding Fascial entrapment of the sural nerve and its clinical relevance. Anat Cell Biol. 2014 Jun;47(2):144-7. doi: 10.5115/acb.2014.47.2.144. Paraskevas GK1, Natsis K1, Tzika M1, Ioannidis O1. PMID:24987554 - the nerve was observed to take a course within a fibrous fascial tunnel 3.1 cm in length that caused nerve fixation and flattening Myotonic Facilitation Technique How can we reduce adhesions? 1. Stretching Use Cross-plane Oscillations (Wiggle at end of free motion) 2. Manipulation

Use Perpendicular lines of force (Addresses Muscle Spindles) [Fuzz = interlayer fascia bonding] Copyright 2018, Dr. Todd Turnbull Myotonic Facilitation Technique Addressing Muscle Fiber Adhesions Goal: Restore normal filament sliding action [Eliminate adhesions] Muscle Spindles Negative stimulation - causes muscle fibers to shorten and become more guarded - excess use of force, grinding, stroking, cross fiber

Positive stimulation - allows muscle fibers to adapt to stretching and lengthening - Perpendicular lines of force helps to separate muscle fibers Copyright 2018, Dr. Todd Turnbull Myotonic Facilitation Technique Golgi Tendon Organs 1) detect tension in myotendinous junction 2) transmits sensory input to spinal cord 3) synapses with alpha motor neurons 4) inhibition of alpha motor neurons causes muscle relaxation and reduction of tension Muscle Activation Deficits - altered sequence of muscle firing - delayed initiation of contraction

- termination of muscle contraction Copyright 2018, Dr. Todd Turnbull Myotonic Facilitation Technique Correcting Muscle Activation Deficits (neuro-muscular dysfunction) Golgi Tendon Organs Negative stimulation - causes muscle fibers to increase tension and guarding - pulling tendons away from insertions, grinding, stroking, cross fiber Positive stimulation - decreases muscle tension to a lower level - Line of drive is into the insertion at the

point/angle of most tenderness Copyright 2018, Dr. Todd Turnbull Injuries occur at connection sites Myotonic Facilitation Technique Neuromuscular Integration Protocols 1. Search for the primary cause - Scan major muscles first - Determine which bones are most distorted 2. Check origin & insertion regions for tenderness - If belly and one end are tender then correct into osteo-tendon jctn. - If both ends are tender, both ends need correction 3. Evaluate muscles above and below for serial {kinetic chain} distortions.

Acute pain - gentle press and hold Chronic pain - play piano, pin and stretch Muscle cramps - squeeze spastic fibers Copyright 2018, Dr. Todd Turnbull Muscle Memory Patterns - Nociceptors produce muscle guarding reactions when tissues are stressed or injured. - Muscle guarding leads to abnormal joint position and limits range of motion. - Local tissue response reinforces nociceptor activity. - Long term guarding causes changes in connective tissues (degeneration/ossification). - Stretching injured tissues can re-stimulate nociceptor activation.

Retrieved March 4 2015 A dysfunctional muscle will produce less output than a healthy muscle.

Copyright 2015, Dr. Todd Turnbull How do we develop healthy Muscle Memory patterns? 1) Muscle Belly - compress perpendicularly into the muscle fiber adhesions first 2) Insertions - press directly into the osteo-tendinous junction at the site and angle of most sensitivity and tenderness 3) Repetitive Correction - builds healthy muscle memory patterns Where/How do concussions irritate nerves? C1 dysfunction affects: 1)Vagus

nerve (CNX - heart and digestive) 2) Spinal Accessory (CNXI - SCM and trapezius) 3) Hypoglossal nerve (CNXII - swallow and voice) 4) Auricular nerve (hearing, tinnitus) 5) Occipital

nerve (headaches) Symptoms - dizzy, foggy, balance loss, earaches, vision, blood pressure, etc. Non-thrust Correction of C1 Contact Point - Anterior portion of the transverse process. The point of maximum tenderness is the area of most dysfunction. Line of Drive - Press A-P, L-M, I-S Pressure - Hold 3 to 5 seconds at patient tolerance Results - reduces symptoms of dizzy, foggy, balance, hearing,

swallowing, vision, blood pressure Copyright 2014, Dr. Todd Turnbull A-P Cranial Compression [Reduces symptoms of sinuses, dizzy, foggy, balance, vision] Patient Position - seated or standing with head slightly flexed Doctor Stance - side of patient Contact Hand - Frontal bone above glabella

Occiput bone below EOP Line of Drive - Squeeze gently and hold for 13 seconds then release. Repeat 3 times. Patient response = muscles relax, sigh/exhale, that feels good Temporalis/Masseter Correction - Muscle tension and guarding create jaw clenching - Reduces symptoms of headache, confusion, ear pain/tinnitus, fogginess,

balance, Contact Point - The point of maximum tenderness is the area of most dysfunction. Line of Drive - Press into the insertion points Pressure - Hold 3 to 5 seconds at patient tolerance Suboccipita ls 1) Obliquus Capitis superior Origin - Transverse process of C1 Insertion - Occiput Action - extension, lateral rotation 1

2) Obliquus Capitis inferior Origin - Spinous process of C2 3 2 Insertion - Transverse process of C1 Action - Rotation around the Dens 3) Rectus Capitus Posterior Major Origin - Spinous process of C2 Insertion - Occiput Action - extension, rotation and lateral flexion Occipital Traction

Trapezius and Sub-occipital correction - Pull the occiput away from C1-2 using a series of gentle traction and release movements with slight flexion of the skull. - Minimally add lateral and rotational moves to enhance release of tension. Patient response = muscles relax, sigh/exhale, that feels good Occipital Nodding Sub-occipital and Trapezius correction - Open the occiput-C1 junction using gentle nodding motions - Progress thru each cervical level by flexing the head to the chest Patient response = muscles relax, sigh/exhale, that feels good Platysma Grimace, then pin

and stretch with side to side motions Origin the fascia covering the upper parts of the pectoralis major and deltoids Insertion the mandible and the corners of the mouth the external jugular vein is underneath the platysma Action depresses the lower jaw and pulls the corners of the mouth down (grimace) Copyright 2014, Dr. Todd Turnbull

Palming Technique Cup each eye with the palms of your hands in such a way that there is no pressure on your eyeballs and no light enters the eye. - Palm until your eyes are relaxed [Take 3 to 10 slow breaths. Rest elbows on the table while sitting.] Do you see nothing, or shapes, lights and colors?

Manual Therapy. 2008 Jun;13(3):213-21. Epub 2007 Mar 30. PMID 17398140 Correcting Nerve Entrapment - Nerve fibers have elastic properties and should slide freely through bones, muscles and fascia. - Use mechanical nerve gliding exercises [dental floss approach] - Activate eyes, tongue, swallow, vocal, facial muscles, scm/traps to pull on cranial nerves and mobilize them. Crazy Brain Stretch

Neuroplasticity - connect as many neurons as possible, without overloading an injured/fragile system. floss cranial nerves to reduce concussion symptoms Activate: 1) traction eustachian tubes 2) vocal [say aaah!] 3) facial [squeeze muscles] 4) tongue [wiggle side to side] 5) eyes [circumduct both directions] - Begin with strongest functions - Slowly add weaker functions - Progress to do all simultaneously *Perform for 5-10 seconds *Repeat 1-3 times per day

A comparison of two home exercises for benign positional vertigo: Half somersault vs. Epley maneuver. Foster CA, Ponnapan A, Zaccaro K, Strong D. Submitted to: Audiology & Neurology EXTRA 2012 https://s.sharecare.com/newsletter/ OHG/Half_somersault_v4.pdf DOI 04/29/2015 Hallpike positional test (peripheral vs. central cause of vertigo) 1) Patient lays supine on the table with eyes open.

2) Support patient's head while it extends over the edge of the table. 3) Lower head down, rotate to one side and look for nystagmus. - Perform bilaterally at a moderate pace (not fast) [Positional changes cause maximal stimulation of the semicircular canals] Peripheral lesions - usually a delayed onset of nystagmus and vertigo. - The nystagmus is horizontal or rotatory and does not change directions. - nystagmus and vertigo fade away within about a minute. [Adaptation] Central lesions - nystagmus and vertigo may begin immediately with no adaptation. [Vertical nystagmus, nystagmus that changes directions, or prominent nystagmus in the absence of vertigo are seen only in central lesions]
