Jean-Pierre Barral 2 Part DVD Series - New Manual Articular Approach; Upper Extremities Series

New Manual Articular Approach (MAA) is a manual therapy modality that applies a comprehensive approach to the treatment of joints. It integrates all aspects of the joint including the nerve, artery, bone, capsule, and ligaments, as well as visceral and emotional connections. MAA delves into the joints like never before. It examines the nerves of each joint, along with the arteries, meniscus, ligaments, capsule attachments and folds. It incorporates soft tissue mobilization of the associated bones, while looking at direct and indirect relationships between the bones of the body. The relationship between the viscera and the joints is not widely understood. MAA shows how interconnected they are and that without addressing this visceral connection many joint issues may not fully resolve. The application of the gentle MAA techniques improves the body’s ability to heal and restore itself to optimal health.

The Shoulder          

This 90 minute DVD about the treatment of the shoulder introduces a new modality of working with joints developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, DO in cooperation with Alain Croibier, DO. More than 40 years of clinical practice have led to this innovative approach, which includes all the different components of a joint: muscles, ligaments, capsule & labrum, synovial fluid inside the capsule, arteries & veins, nerves

The Elbow, Wrist and Hand

This DVD about the dysfunctional tension around the joints is also about the pressure inside the joint capsule.  Barral is aiming for a process of restoring the negative pressure inside the capsule, to distribute the synovial fluid evenly and thereby “save” the cartilage. This is based on the observation that the pressure difference between the inside of the joint capsule and its surrounding tissues is maintained or  – in case of dysfunction – disturbed by strain, present in all sorts of tissues. Strain can be found not only within muscles and their fascia, but strain is also present in membranes, ligaments, the capsule itself, and even in certain layers of fat tissues. In this DVD Barral shows, how to make the choice for efficient treatment for elbow and wrist problems, by distinguishing between the large variety of anatomical units and tissues involved.
