Slow Motion Cervical Thrust

Ever wonder what a cervical thrust manipulation looks like in slow motion?

Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can now see! I was amazed at just how much movement there is on my HVLAs in other parts of the body. Watching in regular motion, you just cannot see that the subject's entire upper body quickly moves. Trust me, the slow motion makes it look like excessive force, but it's not, it is just speed. Compare that to...

So for anyone who still believe they are being specific to one motion segment, slow motion verifies what simple P/A research shows. Multiple segments are moving. I still teach "specificity" for safety and precision. I hope everyone has a great holiday this weekend! Happy Easter!
