Listing System C2 - L5 & Motion Palpation Viewing this PowerPoint Presentation constitutes explicit agreement with the terms of this copyright declaration. Motion Palpation Defined Technique developed by Henri Gillet, a Belgian chiropractor, in which the practitioner's hands are used to feel the motion of specific segments of the spine while the patient moves. The purpose is evaluation of the dynamic movement of the extravertebral and vertebral joints to assess dysfunction between the joints. Mosby's Dictionary of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. (c) 2005, Elsevier. Motion Palpation Advantages Widely utilized across chiropractic Not specific to any one technique Good reliability with a protocol and experience Provides quality kinematic information Can be augmented for all populations Correlated to listings on x-ray (verified or derived) Disadvantages Motion Palpation Unreliable when used as a stand alone tool Poor reliability without a protocol and experience Acute presentations can interfere with outcomes Requires patient to be interactive (which can take time) Has become the major indicator to many practitioners Motion Palpation Insightful about which component of the subluxation complex? Kinesiopathology Relative position Global ROM Intersegmental fixation 1

2 Documentation Insightful about which components of the PART system? P Pain and Tenderness A Asymmetry / Misalignment R Range of Motion Listing System Required Proficiencies: P-A Extension, Rotation, and Lateral Bend Lower cervical motion palpation (C2 C7) Thoracic motion palpation (T1 - T12) Lumbar motion palpation (L1 L5) History Symptomatology Visualization Posture / Leg Check Instrumentation Static and Motion Palpation Lifestyle Education 4 T s Adjust With Appropriate Technique Vertebral Subluxation Complex Spinography Listing System A listing is derived from spinographic analysis Qualifies the actual misalignment found on x-ray Facilitates the adjustment with appropriate technique (Methodology / LOC) Listing System Requires a frame of reference. An arbitrary set of axes, landmarks, or conditions that determine how something will be approached or physically described. -Merriam-Webster Dictionary Creates reproducibility and understanding by the doctor(s) Listing System Considerations Anatomical variability Important to have a reproducible analysis Static picture of a dynamic entity Important to re-evaluate Proper positioning (neutral) Protocol is a frame of reference Acute patient? 2

As a result, the L / T / M is utilized. Remember: Spinous is preferred SCP Lets add lateral wedge 6
