New Manual Articular Approach - The Thoracic Spine

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.

This DVD about the manual treatment of the vertebral spine focuses on the dorsal spine. The techniques shown by Jean-Pierre Barral are based on the New Manual Articular Approach he developed in cooperation with Alain Croibier. From the surface of the organism, the skin, to its very deep intrinsic components, and the nerve plexuses, all the components of the human body as they relate to the thoracic spine are included in evaluation and treatment.

The DVD shows a full spectrum of manual diagnostics and treatment of:

  • The dorsal spine and the costovetebral joint
  • The various ligaments related to the heads of the ribs
  • The costotransverse and superior costotransverse ligament
  • The posterior angle of the ribs and the levator costarum muscles
  • The lateral angle of the ribs, internal and external intercostal muscles
  • The costal arch
  • The chondrocostal joint, the chondrosternal joint and the sternosternal joint
  • The brachial plexus related to the clavicle
