What is Integrative Manual Therapy?
  • Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) is a unique
    compilation of diagnostic and treatment
    methodologies that assess and treat pain,
    dysfunction, disease and disability.
  • IMT is a new approach to health care developed to
    address the needs of complex patients.
  • IMT practitioners identify and address the
    underlying causes of dysfunction using a
    comprehensive and holistic approach.
  • IMT diagnostics and treatment modalities are
    predominately hands-on.
  • IMT also integrates a wide range of diagnostic
    and treatment technologies, nutritional programs
    (i.e. natural supplements, diet, and herbs)
  • IMT body based psychotherapeutic approaches to
    develop a customized solution for an individual
    patient's needs. 

5
Diagnostics
  • IMT uses what we call Integrative Diagnostics to
    evaluate patients.
  • IMT practitioners assess patients by using manual
    (hands-on) diagnostic techniques.
  • IMT diagnostics assess the body's numerous
    anatomic and physiologic systems independently as
    well as investigate how these systems are
    interrelated for each patient's pattern of
    dysfunction or disease.
  • The diagnostics evaluate various inherent rhythms
    in the body (also known as biologic rhythms,
    circadian rhythms, or motilities). Just as a
    doctor might use a heart beat to gain information
    about the heart and the cardiovascular system, so
    too an IMT therapist measures inherent anatomical
    and physiologic rhythms to assess different
    systems in the body (i.e. lymphatic, nervous,
    fascial, circulatory system).
  • For example, the lymphatic system has a distinct
    rhythm which can be used to identify inadequate
    immune support within lymph vessels or at lymph
    nodes.
  • Unique to IMT is the ability to discern the state
    of the body on the basis of these rhythms.

Diagnostics (cont.)
-IMT total body diagnostics often broaden the
scope of investigation from a seemingly local
problem to a more regional, systemic and/or
multi-system dysfunction. To illustrate,
consider a patient who suffers from chronic
migraine headaches. An IMT practitioner would
assess the patient by identifying all areas in
the body which are contributing to the problem.
This would include dysfunction at obvious local
sites such as the joints and muscles at the head
and neck, but might also include breakdowns at
the joints of the pelvis, sacrum, and spine, a
blood flow insufficiency locally or systemically,
tension within the nervous system, an immune
system breakdown, or a combination of all or any
of these problems. -IMT diagnostics determine
the origin and/or the underlying cause(s) of pain
or dysfunction -then determine the hierarchy in
which treatment should ensue for optimal results.

TREATMENT
  • -IMT treatment builds off of a diagnostic
    foundation to create a personalized treatment
    plan that balances a patient's short term and
    long term goals
  • IMT will evolve throughout a patient's engagement
    period.
  • -Treatment approach is results oriented.
  • -Interactive, ie not passive, patient is active
    participant in process.
  • The patient and the practitioner constantly
    monitor and re-assess progress.
  • -IMT treatment techniques are manual (hands-on)
  • -Involve gentle manipulative techniques to
    promote tissue repair, normalize structure and
    restore function
  • - More specifically, IMT techniques generally put
    specific forces or torques into the tissues in
    order to create an environment within those
    tissues which is conducive for tissue repair to
    occur

30
TREATMENT (CONT.)
  • -- IMT addresses both anatomy and physiology. The
    treatment of anatomy includes manual techniques
    for bones, ligaments, discs, nerves, arteries,
    veins, organs and more.
  • -- There are literally thousands of techniques to
    address these structures.
  • --The treatment of physiology, to promote
    normalization of biochemistry, uses both manual
    therapy and nutritional wellness programs
  • A typical IMT treatment plan integrates manual
    therapies, nutritional counseling (i.e. natural
    supplements, diet, and herbs),
  • -- This may include treatments targeting
    hormones, sleep cycles, metabolism, stress
    responses, etc.
  • --. IMT's body based psychotherapeutic approach
    involves specific techniques such as manual
    techniques, dialogue, and visualization to
    decrease emotional and mental stress in the body.
    These techniques are body based and manual
    therapy based.

31
THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS/RESULTS
-- increases function -- improvements in the
patient's inherent biological rhythms --
enhanced ranges of motion --reduction of
pain --reduction of swelling --improved blood
flow --enhanced lymphatic motility --improved
avenues of detoxification
--improved energy levels --better ability to
handle stress both external and
internal --improvement in immune system
integrity --improvement in digestion --increased
cognition and/or normalized behavioral
responses --more balance in the emotional
responses

AS COMPARED TO OTHER TREATMENT
Example Torn Ligament in Knee, Post OP/ie ACL
Repair
34
(No Transcript)
35
A Straight forward functional approach would
address strength, balance, and movement to a leg
following knee surgery for a torn ligament.
Modalities like electrical stimulation,
ultrasound, heat, cold etc.. Would be
administered to decrease inflammation, and soft
tissue work to address musculature would be
minimal.
36
  • IMT structural techniques
  • Decrease the swelling at the joint using
    inflammation techniques.
  • Utilize techniques to enhance the healing of the
    torn ligaments.
  • Use other techniques to improve blood flow into
    and out of the knee.
  • Decrease the inflammation at the joint capsule.
  • Address neural tension in the area with neural
    tissue techniques.
  • Use postural reflexes to reorient the knee after
    the surgical trauma.
  • Trauma or shock releasing techniques to release
    the adrenal system.
  • Address any related areas affecting the knee ie
    hip, low back, ankle/foot.
  • All of this prior to implementing functional
    techniques.

37
REASONING Once structural integrity has been
restored to the structures at the knee, the
potential for function of the knee, and the
entire leg, will be much greater.
38
Example for Low Back Pain
Low back pain is one of our most common medical
problems. At least one-quarter of all U.S. adults
suffer from it every year. It's also the number
two reason for visiting the doctor.
39
Functional Approach Typically, modalities,
soft tissue work, lumbar and core strengthening
exercises.
40
IMT Approach
----IMT practioner would widen the scope of
investigation beyond the muscles and bones of the
low back. ---WHAT other structures are
contributing to symptoms?
41
Organs involved? -Gastrointestinal
Influence -Proximity to Sigmoid
colon -Proximity to Cecum and the Ileocecal
Valve -------there can be dysfunction due to
digestive disturbance, ie leaky gut,
constipation, irritable bowel etc. -----structura
l integrity issues as well as inflammation,
disruptions in the membrane and functional
problems. Treatment techniques to restore
integrity to these structures, coupled with
nutritional counseling are often highly effective
at reducing chronic and stubborn presentations of
low back pain. OR-----
42
---Are there other systems involved? What other
sytems are involved and is it multisytem? ----Wher
e is the dysfunction? Primary? Seconday? ----Is
it bone, disc, joint, nerve, blood vessels,
lymphatic, or organ.? IMT has specific
techniques for addressing each of these types of
structures. A customized treatment plan would
again combine manual therapy to normalize the
structures involved, with nutritional counseling
to optimize the physiology of the structures
involved.
43
CHRONIC FATIGUE OR FIBROMYALGIA
---Total body diagnostics would be done to
discern the pattern of dysfunction . --Common
patterns contributing to chronic fatigue include
a breakdown of one or more of the structures of
the immune system, the circulatory system, the
detoxification and/or the elimination systems.
--A treatment plan might include manual therapy
techniques to normalize and in turn optimize
function of a) lymph nodes, b)arterial and
venous blood flow, c) the liver and kidneys for
detoxification and d)the colon for
elimination. -- Dietary recommendations and
natural supplements would be given to normalize
the physiology or the biochemistry of the
structures involved. --Furthermore, IMT body
based psychotherapeutic approaches would be
integrated into treatment sessions to decrease
mental and emotional stresses. At some point
during this patients course of treatment,
nutritional supplementation would be implemented.
Immediately diet would be addressed. Some
possible choices of supplementation would be
cellular support, anti-inflammatory support,
anti-oxidants, and detoxification support.

ADVANCED STRAIN COUNTERSTRAIN HISTORY Lawrence
Jones, D. O. -discovered that positional therapy
would eliminate pain at specific tenderpoints if
held for 90 seconds.Results were elongation of
the muscle/ and decrease in hypertonicity, and
decompression of the joint and/or suture. Sharon
Giammateo, PhD. Took this approach and addressed
the structures innervated by the Autonomic
Nervous System. ANS has sympathetic and the
parasympathetic ANS- involuntary or unconscious
division of the peripheral nervous
system Sympathetic meets all crisis, load
escalates as people get more compromised ---all
cells have sympathetic innervations including
blood vessels -----when out of balance? Decrease
d oxygen Reduced healing Increased
hypertension Changes in endocrine
function Impact on metabolism

  • APPLICATION
  • Place the client in the position as indicated.
  • Maintain this position for 1 minute without any
    movement added.
  • Hold after 1 minute for a De-Facilitated Fascial
    Release as the tissue unwinds.
  • This occurs as a secondary response to the
    elimination and/or decrease in hyper tonicity.
    (appears at the level of the ground substance)
  • When complete, return the client to neutral
    slowly.

EXAMPLE OF A TECHNIQUE Myofascial Release Used
for fascia or connective tissue -technique
involves testing tissue glides on multiple planes
and then manipulating those tissues on three
planes, following the direction of least
resistance. The practitioner then holds the
fulcrum that these manipulations have created and
moniters the tissues as they unwind under their
hands. -this technique attains an elongation of
the fibers within the connective tissue as well
as a normalization of the density and viscosity
from within the surrounding connective tissue.
66

  • Treatment-Compress gently the 2 hands.
  • Engage a 3 planar indirect technique
  • Medial/lateral
  • Superior/Inferior
  • Clockwise/Counterclockwise
  • Maintain the fulcrum.

67
  • VISCERAL FASCIAL RELEASE

    anterior surface of the middle and distal
    phalanges.
  • Place one hand on the sternal notch.
  • Place one hand on the xiphoid process.
  • Approximate the fingers and squeeze.
  • Stomach
  • 5th finger of distal hand on the umbilicus.
  • Place the pads of 2nd, 3rd 4rth digits of the
