Harmful effect of P-to-A spine manipulation

View this video full screen so you can see how straight he is before getting the P-to-A impacts and how slumped after. When you are watching, note the P-to-A impacts on his spine are much less force than a typical 'lay the person prone and adjust P-to-A with force on a given vertebra,' because the P-to-A impacts are spread out over a larger surface area than when the treatment is only on a vertebra or two of the spine.

Practitioners taking just one Advanced BioStructural Correction™ live seminar and doing the test of taking a before picture, treating people with ABC™, taking an after picture and then treating people with typical P-to-A treatment of any type with an after picture are usually a bit taken aback at how quickly they can breakdown people's structure after correction.

It is astonishing how many people are so badly off structurally that even a P-to-A treatment that makes them mechanically worse still shifts the pressures on their body enough so they are tricked into thinking they are better. It is also the answer to why adjustments or osteopathic manipulations "don't hold".

I'm a lay person, and I totally understand this.  P to A, means Posterior to Anterior.  We should be adjusted/corrected from A to P (Anterior to Posterior).  THAT is the difference in ABC compared to traditional chiropractic.  The anterior vertebrae are the ones that the body can't self correct, because there are no muscles behind each vertebrae to pull it back into place.  When the anteriors are corrected, then all posteriors (which are compensations, btw) will then self correct, because there are muscles in front of each vertebra, and on each side.   Understand?   This is what we learned.






Okay, here is a side view of yours truly, immediately after an ABC adjustment.
Notice how my head is up, and shoulders are back, back straight.
This is after being asked to breathe in, breath out and let your body slump.
Only my bones are holding me up, and I can't slump right after ABC correction.  The way it should be.
And it's not hard to correct someone from A to P either.

I might add that normally, I'm bio-mechanically weak, as far as adjusting someone else.  The first day I struggled, because I had to adjust a bigger person, and kept cramping up.  Then after the full protocol, several meningeal releases in ONE day, I was able to set up and get him adjusted with ease.  I was told by the instructor, that as I get more adjustments by ABC, that it will become easier.  And the instructor is a smaller guy, and about my height.

When spinous subluxates in Superior, it also goes Anterior. When P-A manipulation is done on Superior and Anterior listing, it does not correct S and A portion of subluxation but correct only rotational component. If manipulations are done on healthy joints, P-A manipulations can cause Superior and anterior subluxations which ABC claim the most significant harm to body.
