Jesse Physio blogs again! Great post overall on Diane Lee's ISM model. He asks a lot of great questions that can be applied to any traditionally presented model that says palpation matters. Regular readers will know what I think of that. If you can get a reliable assessment from palpation that directs your treatment great, if you're just pressing and guessing or hoping and poking, it's a different matter. Movement is where it's at!
Dr. Harrison Vaughn thinks PT should have a "law" like the origins of chiropractic and osteopathy. If you study manual therapy history like is presented in some curriculums (it was at St. Augustine very well), you should be familiar with the law of the nerve and the law of the artery. What should our law be? My vote goes to the law of education? Who is better at educating patients at what is relevant, what is not, and how to self treat?
Dr. Zac Cupples summarized the Sensitive Nervous System and now he is summarizing Gray Cook's movement. Here is his summary of Chapter 4: Movement Screening.
