“I turned up to see Michael as what could only be described as a basket case. I could barely walk down the road. Inside a few visits, I was walking, pain had diminished to a great degree, and I started feeling human again.”

Principles of Muscle Alignment

The study of muscle and alignment originated with DaVinci. His book on the subject is still being used in universities today.

Resetting the Knee. Applying simple tools to align the Cruciate Ligament

If you have been told your knee ligaments need surgery (common sporting injury) come to see me.

There is a simple 2 minute “fix” I can use that will reset the cruciate ligaments. It doesn’t always work, but in over 70% of cases where surgery was required, the problem was simply misalignment of the ligament.

The structure of the musculature is well known, but what is not understood by most practitioners is how muscles can be pulled out of their normal “groove” and go into tension as a result. A little know practitioner by the name of Bill Hatchard did resolve the trigger points and release points in the muscle system. Bill had, from the age of five, been dissecting sheep and animals at the abatoir where his father worked.

He learned that each muscle has a specific “cup” into which the tendon that connects it to the bone must sit. If it slips out, the muscle will go into tension. By simply placing the muscles back into the proper place, immediate and lasting benefit was experienced by clients.

Shortly after learning Bill’s techniques, I had a client turn up with a 20 year old frozen shoulder. In under 20 minutes I was able to unlock the specific points that trapped the muscles. The entire shoulder became mobile and the client walked out without pain. In 20 years of practice, I have never found any simple, common sense system that worked so effectively, and I base a good deal of my work around what I learned from Bill.

Without going into detail regarding the biochemical responses of the body, the other side of muscle alignment is the core mineral and enzyme balance of the client. In the 1950’s, for example, biopsies done on every heart attack patient found that in EVERY CASE, the heart was critically low in Magnesium. But what doctor recommends magnesium supplements to people with heart issues? The problem is that the GP’s are not Biochemists, and vice versa.

Ignoring the core mineral and enzyme balance for muscles is sadly, very common.

By taking the time to diagnose and address CORE ISSUES, such as muscle alignment and mineral/enzyme balance, often I can resolve long standing and chronic conditions that others have found impossible to treat.

I will also use very old Tens machines (Long pulse, slow contraction, not the new sharp pulse, short contraction version) and other tools that were used by Physio’s in the 1950’s such as Niagara therapy. I do VERY LITTLE spinal manipulation, and the correction I do use does not require twisting or sharp movements. While there are very good Chiropractors out there, more than a few of my clients have come from the old “Crack and twist” Chiro’s. In short explanation, when you twist and force the bones into place, you damage the fine muscles and ligaments that hold those bones in place.

There are other, more effective methods of spinal correction, if indeed it is needed as all.
