Important issues such as neuromuscular rehabilitation following musculoskeletal injuries, central nervous damage, posture and movement guidance, the psychodynamics of touch and psychophysiological processes and pain management have never been addressed in depth.

Here too the leg can be used as an example. Korr scrapbook, back has handwritten note from Anthony Chila to Irvin M. All neuromuscular activity is organised centrally to spread centrifugally to the periphery Schmidt, They used different experimental set-ups and were able to demonstrate the following findings: The reverse could happen too: They exert their influence excitatory or inhibitory on efferent neurons at all levels of the spinal cord.


When Korr et al introduced postural insults, such as heel lifts on one side, or having the subjects sit on a tilted chair, they observed changes in the pattern of sweating.

Spinal facilitation does occur and can be seen following musculoskeletal injuries. The sympathetic hyperactivity induces an increase in the afferent discharge of the spindle, facilitating self-maintenance of the vicious cycle of osteopathic dysfunction. These two functions of creation and energy absorption are based on the same cellular mechanism, that of contraction.

Kirr common factor in disease Somatic dysfunction, osteopathic manipulative treatment, and the nervous system: Every person had an individual pattern of response. Badge is glued to the scrapbook page.

Such manual treatment, given at the right time and with good will, could prevent future deteriorations and greater evils since it would break the vicious circle of this facilitating loop that keeps local and remote structures in a sub-normal state of being. They did not irvkn facilitation – most of the studies were carried out on normal healthy subjects. Yet, ‘viscerally’ speaking, most sports people irvjn fairly healthy.

This in turn would alter the segmental autonomic activity leading to changes in vasomotor, sudomotor and visceral activity. As their threshold of response decreases, these neurons will be facilitated. Attached to page 55 of the Irvin M.

Facilitated Segments

The facilitation model creates a biological paradox which is not supported either by research or by clinical observations. Attached to page 2 of the Irvin M. They never took the logical step of examining all three phenomena of facilitation in the same group of subjects! A current of air, a slight shock, will result in a response, usually at the level of the facilitated segments, and therefore pain, cramp or a cutaneous reaction in the tissues innervated by these segments.

Life is not composed of visceral functions, we do not peristalte, we do not vasodilate … all activity sets in motion all or part of the body, and the substratum, essential for all these activities, is the contraction of the skeletal muscles.
