Thursday Thoughts: Poll on Treating Ipsilateral vs Contralateral or Agonist/Antagonist


For a quick overview of some of the concepts on why you should consider treating the ipsilateral side of pain rather than the contralateral, click here for a vidcast I did a while back.





There are no right or wrong answers, just curious as to what the majority of you do in cases like these. I am also wondering what your rationale would be. Please take a few seconds to answer the poll and chime in below or on the facebook page as to your rationale! Thanks!

I think the most effective HEPs/Resets/Treatments are those that are novel and non-threatening to the CNS, which is why I choose the areas to treat that the patient is most likely not targeting. It does not work in all cases (nothing does) but it's often simple and gets rapid results when the input to the CNS is something that it has not experienced regularly.

Keeping it Eclectic...
