DVD New Manual Articular Approach - The Shoulder
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
