Manipulation for Systemic Dysfunction

How is OMT used for routine care for treatment of visceral disease? as a complimentary treatment
Sympathetic inervation of the head and neck T1-T4
Cardiovascular sympathetic innervation T1-T5
Respiratory sympathetic innervation T2-T7
Stomach, liver and gall bladder sympathetic innervation T5-T9
What is important about the posterior Horn neurons and OMT? There is a lot of cross talk
Small intestine Sympathetic Innervation T9-11
Ovary and Testicle sympathetic innervation T9-10
Kidney, ureter and bladder sympathetic innervation T10-11
Large intestine sympathetic innervation T8-L2
Uterus sympathtic innervation T10-11
Spine sign for heart disease doughy tissue texture changes at T1-T5 due to lymphatic congestion
Prostate sympathetic innervation L1-2
Location of diagnosis of spinal reflexes associated with sympathethic nervous system. Thoracic and lumbar
What is the typical somatic dysfunction found with the systematic nervous system. Commonly Type 2 somatic dysfunction
TART criteria for SNS Tissue texture changes Red reflex Chapman's Reflexes
Chapman's Points tender nodules along sympathetic dermatomes associated with specific organ dysfunctino
Diagnosis of abdominal plexus tension Celiac Superior mesenteric Inferior mesenteric
Normalizing autonomic tone treatment of type 2 spinal somatic dysfunction rib raising abdominal plexus release Chapman's Point stimulation
Rib Raising Stretches the connective tissue around the sympathetic chain ganglia that causes an effect. First is an up-regulation of sympathetic followed by a down regulation
What is normally seen with treatment of parasympathetics? First a down regulation then an up regulation
Treatment of sympathetic component of bowel dysfunction Push posterioroly into celiac, superior mesenteric, or inferior mesenteric ganglion. Hold until tissue release, about 10-20 seconds.
When is treatment of bowel dysfunction contraindicated? Ganglion inhibition is contraindicated in patients with peritonitis, bowel obstruction
Head and neck PNS Vagus
Cardiovascular PNS Vagus
Respiratory PNS Vagus
Treatment of parasympathtic component of visceral disease upper cervical soft tissue sacral rocking
Stomach, liver, gall bladder PNS vagus
Small intestine PNS vagus
Ovary, testicle PNS S2-S4
Kidney, ureter, bladder PNS S2-S4
Large intestine PNS Vagus, S2-S4
Uterus S2-S4
Ileus bowel shuts down and fills up with air
Prostate S2-S4
Lymphatic Pumps Thoracic Pump Pectoral Traction Pedal pump
Ventral Techniques Mesenteric Lifts Organ pumps/recoil
What is located in the mesentary? Intestinal nerves, arteries, veins and lymphatics
What do mesenteric lifts do? passively shorten a mesentery to reduce tension, normalize autonomics, and improve circulation and drainage
What are the 3 mesenteric lifts? Descending colon lifted toward umbilicus Transverse colon lifted toward epigastric area Ascending colon lifted toward umbilicus
Barral Abdominal Sphincter Release Direct or indirect myofascial release for fascial rotation restriction over sphincter
Indications for Barral Abdominal Sphincter Release Hiatal hernia Gastroesophageal reflux Cholestasis Malabsorption Diarrhea
Diagnosis to use Barral Abdominal Sphincter Release fascial rotation restriction over sphincter
What four areas do you do myofascial release for Barral Abdominal Sphincter Release? Pyloric sphincter Hepatopancreatic sphincter (Oddi) Duodenojejunal junction Ileocecal valve
Sympathetic treatments for normalization Rib raising Abdominal ganglion inhibition Chapmanā€™s point stimulation
Parasympathetic normalization Suboccipital inhibition or other upper cervical treatment Sacral rocking or other sacral treatment
Lymphatic treatment Thoracic pump Pectoral traction Pedal pump Effleurage
Organ treatment Organ pumps Visceral manipulation
