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.
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

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:
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.
What does a health check look like?
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.
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.
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.
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.
