This would alter the neuronal activity at the same segmental level and might spread to adjacent areas of the spinal cord affecting spinal centres not directly related to the original injury. In other words, when an osteopath restores the mobility of an articular segment of the spine mobility being a very relative notionit would have a double action locally and remotely.
Each factor acts in the context of many other factors and causes certain effects only in a combination of certain factors. A current of air, a slight shock, will result in a response, usually at the level of the facilitated segments, and therefore pain, cramp or a cutaneous reaction in the tissues innervated by these segments.
Korr — Volume 2: Spinal facilitation does occur and can be seen following musculoskeletal injuries. Mobility restrictions, or osteopathic dysfunctionsare the consequence of a neurological disorder prepared well in advance.

Korr irfin, color photograph, Korr is wearing a gray suit; Each osteopath has a very personal perception of his relationship to the patient and therefore a different definition of Osteopathy. The Collected Papers of Irvin M. Korr scrapbook, computer date stamp in the lower right corner; Here is what is written about it; Professor Irvin Korr in his theory on segmental facilitation The facilitated spinal segment:. A few facts, some theories, many questions Restoring the musculoskeletal system to its human context.
This phenomenon affects not only the fibres of the neurovegetative nervous system, but also all the other nerve fibres sensory and motor of the medullary segment involved. Thus, the function organized vertically in the marrow becomes manifestly horizontal at the level affected the facilitated level and the clinical disorder must then be seen under a segmental angle.
Korr Scrapbook Page 52 of the Irvin M. Korr make an excellent reference volume, complementary, and second in scope only to the recently published Foundations of Osteopathic Medicine Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, How can joint disruption bone and soft tissues have local and distant repercussions, be in relation with other pathological factors, be detected and favourably corrected by osteopathic manipulation and, consequently, all associated disturbances?
Whatever these differences are, life is complex and the difference rewarding: In structural techniquesvelocity and amplitude are important criteria. Yet, ‘viscerally’ speaking, most sports people are fairly healthy. Image is attached to the scrapbook page.
Invitation; Apr Some definitions of osteopathy … Other definitions How to explain the effectiveness of osteopathy? Life is not composed of visceral functions, we do not peristalte, we do not vasodilate … all activity sets in motion all or part of the body, and the substratum, essential for all these activities, is the contraction of the skeletal muscles.
Naturally the blood supply and sweat gland activity will also vary considerably between the two legs with an increase in activity in the balancing leg. Even if one accepts the possibility of facilitated segments as described by Korr, Denslow and their co-workers, it is extremely doubtful that passive stimulation of the soma would result in the resetting of neurological activity Lederman, Irvin Korr Explanation Osteopathy effective on asthma?

For example, a musculoskeletal injury could reach the spinal cord through its afferent connection causing spinal facilitation or sensitisation to take place. Korr Scrapbook Page 49 of the Irvin M.
Korr scrapbook, Allen and Korr are shaking hands, George W. Goldberg J The effect of two intensities of massage on H-reflex amplitude. Irvin Korr in Laboratory; This is equivalent to seeing three different patients, one with joint pain, one with conjunctivitis and another with urethritis, and diagnosing them all as having Reiter’s Syndrome!
These two urvin of creation and energy absorption are based on the same cellular mechanism, that of contraction. The information thus flows from the receptor to the medullary segment, from the medullary segment to the metamer and hence to the initial ivin.
