A second reason is to preserve, in a body, Dr. They have demonstrated the reverse: However, that does not mean that the reverse is true, i. Interestingly, when one compares the iorr of skin conductivity of subjects with injury Korr et al,pages to those of normal subjects Korr et al,pagesthey don’t seem to be different.

Because of the krr proximity of the motor and autonomic spinal centres, this spread of excitation would eventually involve these lateral centres.

The needs of the neuro-musculoskeletal system vary according to the moment. Korr scrapbook; Apr It does not necessarily cause symptoms, and even when it is symptomatically silent, it can be discovered.

More important clinically are changes in motoneuron threshold by spinal sensitisation as described by He et al This was done at a great cost to osteopathy – osteopathic understanding of neurophysiology has starts and ended at the facilitated segment. Naturally the blood supply and sweat gland activity will also vary considerably between the two legs with an increase in activity in the balancing leg.

Treatment must take into account all the disturbances of the body diagram, the associated emotional and visceral disorders, the sensitivity of each person, the use he makes of it, the neuro-motor reprogramming or proprioceptive education if necessary, the correction.

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.
