Manual Medicine

In order to remove subluxations and misalignments from the spine and take pressure off the patient’s nervous system, manual medicine in its various forms is the simplest and most effective method. While pain is the most common symptom that motivates a visit to the doctor, pain reduction is only a byproduct of treatment. Basically, the doctor/therapist tries to improve communication from the brain to the peripheral tissues through the spinal cord and nerve roots by adjusting the vertebral segments. This will then trigger regeneration through the patient’s central nervous system. Your diagnosis is not key in treatment success, as the central nervous system controls all other bodily functions and all other body parts. The highlight in our practice is proof of structural and functional effectiveness of the therapy.  X-rays before and after treatment series (usually 30 treatments) show the achieved structural difference in spinal biomechanics. In addition, the autonomic nervous system is imaged before treatment. This allows the “stress state” of the patient to be shown. This measurement can also be repeated after a series of treatments to document improvement of nervous system function.

Degenerative Disc Disease Reversal: Rethinking Human Physiology by Dr. med. Matthias Meier
This clinical study – published in the Journal Of Clinical Case Reports – shows that disc tissue growth is possible without the use of drugs, surgery or cell transplantation . This should be the beginning of a rethinking of functional physiology and the importance of translational medicine, as it is recognized in medicine worldwide that disc tissue degenerates over a lifetime and cannot be regenerated endogenously.

Creating optimal conditions for physical healing

Understand the concept that the central nervous system… In misaligned vertebrae the function of the contained nervous system will decline, and peripheral metabolism will not be controlled fully. This may result in symptoms in the place of innervation by the nerve root which is under pressure or tension. Adjusting these vertebrae will take off pressure/tension and increase flow of nerve signals and by this, help the central nervous system heal whatever needs to be healed. “I only give the impulses, the patients´s central nervous system does the actual work.” -Dr. Meier

Holistic approach to holistic treatment

In our practice we search for the underlying cause of your symptoms and use a therapy regimen that targets that root cause instead of just treating symptomsIn order to achieve the best possible treatment outcome, my treatment strategy is guided by the following three key words:
1. Preventive:
Manual medical treatment can reduce pressure in spinal segments, leading to improvement of nerve supply to the periphery. The principle is used in chirotherapeutic practices all over the world and is considered highly efficient in the USA especially for injury prevention and rehabilitation of athletes as well as in children. At the same time, the treatment is also aimed at older patients to strengthen gait stability and thus reduce the risk of falls or as a pain-relieving measure. The treatments are also for non-symptomatic people a way to maintain health and prevent physical ailments.
How quickly someone benefits from treatment depends on the duration of symptoms, on the one hand, but also on the patient’s age and a history of trauma. In young people, healing can occur within a very short time in the best case. The effectiveness of the treatment is based on its holistic approach. We don´t treat the symptoms, we treat the cause. This is a different impulse for the body and accordingly has a different effect (than, for example, medication).
At impulse health management, elements from Manual Medicine/Chirotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic medicine are used and sometimes combined to provide the most benefit from all three schools of thought. We have the possibility to perform diagnostics before and after the treatment series. On the basis of this we can optimize the therapy and at the same time document progress. This is achieved by means of X-rays and measurements of the autonomic nervous system, which you can take home with you after the examination. In addition, I offer you the possibility of a consultation on nutritional supplements, which have been researched and developed in the USA since the 1970s and, when used correctly, are a valuable aid for health restrictions.

Your first visit

The goal of your first visit is to find out what your underlying health problem is, which is not always the same as your symptoms. To do this, we offer you a comprehensive health check.

Impulse Health Management - Dr. Matthias Meier, Anamnesegespräch Patient, Manuelle Therapie
What does a health check look like?
  • Medical history interview and physical examination
  • X-ray examination and scan of your autonomic nervous system
  • Examination of muscle tension in your spine
  • Scan of the organ nerve supply
Afterwards, the results are evaluated and discussed with you. From the diagnostics, I will form an appropriate treatment recommendation that will accomplish as much as possible in as little time as possible and determine the course of further treatment. Please plan about 45-60 minutes for this initial appointment. Of course, you can also use our diagnostic tools as a health check. After your individual course of treatment, we will perform another measurement to document progress. The diagnostics are my recommendation for optimal care and an aid to therapy, but not a necessity. Alternatively, I offer treatments based on palpation findings. These proceed without measurements of your physical problems, which precludes an objective before-and-after comparison We ask that you indicate at your initial appointment if you have any objections to diagnostics, as our time management is based on this.

Good to know

Manual medicine is a large term that includes chirotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy, among others. What they all have in common is the use of manual palpation as a diagnostic but also therapeutic tool to improve the health of the patient. However, they have a different idea of how this should optimally be done. At impulse health management, techniques are used to structurally improve the spine, which improves physiological function which achieves an improvement in physiology. In the USA, this is practiced in only a few centers; in Germany, this type of medicine is basically unknown.
Is “adjusting” dangerous?
This question always moves the minds, but it is easy to answer. Dislocated vertebrae are a serious injury such as can occur after car accidents with rollover trauma or falls from great heights. Blocked subluxations are therefore not dislocated. Subluxations are a result of a muscular reflex that protects the segment from moving in a certain direction. To adjust the segment is only to remove this protective reflex and thus, to remove pressure from the segment. Similar to opening a champagne bottle, there is a sudden drop in pressure in the joint, and this can cause a “pop.” This means that there is less tension on the vertebral segment and thus on the intervertebral discs and nerve roots. Of course, as with any treatment on humans, care must be taken while adjusting. Particularly in the cervical spine, the vessels that supply the brain must be protected. Injuries during chirotherapeutic/chiropractic manipulations are very rare and, when they happen, are often considered a minor cause of a pre-existing problem in the patient. At “impulse health management” this is explained at the beginning of the treatment. If you have any questions or if you are afraid of the treatment, just bring it up beforehand.
Examples:
  • Back pain: in the lumbar spine/pelvis or in the cervical and thoracic spine should not be experienced. However, when these occur there is always a reason for it, which can also be identified by X-ray diagnosis. Based on the X-rays and palpation findings, the spine can be treated to bring it back to physiological biomechanics. Since nerves exiting from the lumbar spine go to the hip, knee and foot, and from the cervical spine to the head, shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers, this can also improve pain and/or numbness/tingling peripherally.
  • Headaches: in our own practice, about 95% of headaches can be improved by adequate cervical/thoracic spine treatment through the methods used here. The segmental nerve supply and autonomic nervous system are relaxed and can either improve or reverse the symptomatology. Frequently accompanying and occasionally present in isolation are symptoms such as dizziness, tinnitus, jaw pain, blurred vision, difficulty swallowing, and olfactory or gustatory disturbances. These disappear in about as many cases.
  • Athletes: have high demands on their musculoskeletal system and therefore on their nervous system, which has to adapt according to the physical load. Overload problems like stress fractures or muscular pains show a slow decompensation of the autonomic nervous system. In our practice we can visualize this for better training control. However, the principle can be used for all diseases as well as for health checks. Injury prevention is achieved by manually influencing the autonomic nerve function and thus improving the biomechanics of the spinal segments. This leads as described above to a better nerve supply of all structures of the human body and leads to an improved function. As a small selection of examples may serve the swimmer, who after the treatment has a better water position and can breathe equally well to the right and left, the runner, who has no more asthmatic complaints under load or the tennis / golf player, who has no more elbow or shoulder complaints after the treatment.
  • Children: according to previous experience, benefit the fastest. The principle is the same as for adults but is performed more gently, and in individual cases segmental manipulation is not used at all. Examples of problems that can be treated well are: unclear abdominal complaints, asthma, restriction of head mobility, bedwetting, unclear muscle pain (especially during exertion), recurring ear problems (water retention, infections, hearing loss), “ADHD”, etc.
  • Autonomic symptoms: most people present because of pain. However, autonomic symptoms should be taken just as seriously and should also be considered and treated holistically. Examples are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep disorders, low thyroid levels, digestive problems (frequent diarrhea, constipation, chronic inflammation), dizziness, tinnitus, cardiac arrhythmias, heartburn, and even slow-onset emotional lability, etc. All of these symptoms (like all metabolic processes of the human body) are controlled by the autonomic nervous systems and usually improve with adequate spinal treatment and, if necessary, nutritional counseling (see autonomic function).
All these correlations show that a symptom-oriented treatment cannot achieve the same effect as a holistic cause-related one. Therefore, at impulse health management, every patient is diagnosed and treated holistically, regardless of the symptoms. In our experience, this releases the most healing potential.
