Intervertebral Discs and Prolapsed Discs
Intervertebral discs are centered, nourished and are stressed and de-stressed through muscular guidance. Unilateral muscle pulls, muscle shortening, and relatively over-trained pelvic and abdominal muscles may compress and squeeze out intervertebral disc processes and throw them out of balance. The logical sequelae of functionally pathological loads are protrusions of the intervertebral discs, and ultimately disc prolapses. We cannot regard the disc as primarily responsible for this process, but rather, pathological loading and improper use of the muscular system.
Using targeted neuromuscular regulation of muscular equilibrium in the anterior and posterior cervical spine along with the abdominal muscles, hip flexors and back muscles, it is possible to effectively unburden the discs and put them back on the “right track.” Thus, the underlying principle of Myoreflex Therapy is not to combat pain and to work directly on the discs, but instead, to unburden and center the guiding muscle power lever of the muscular system. As a result, the “relatively compressed” nerve branches, blocked joints and the disc processes will be securely unburdened.
Using targeted KiD exercises (resistance training in stretched positions), weak point and length training, it is possible to use physics and anatomy to efficiently calculate sustainable therapeutic results to assure freedom from pain and an “upright” posture.
