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.
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.
