Advanced Muscle Palpation Technique
Advanced Muscle Palpation (AMP) Technique is a tonal chiropractic analysis and adjustment that determines the level and listing of vertebral subluxation utilizing spinal myotatic reflex arcs embedded in spinal muscle stabilizers.
Myotatic reflexes provide self-regulating communication between sensory and motor neurons innervating the spinal musculature that stabilizes the vertebrae. Palpating active (working) paraspinal muscles provide the Chiropractor with optimal certainty the location, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation.
Spinal musculature are the active defenders of proper spinal dynamics and can be the Chiropractor’s greatest indicators for locating, analyzing and facilitating the correction of vertebral subluxation.
AMP Technique Mission Statement
How to Become a Member
Certainty and commitment to the adjustment are vital and I have 100% conviction that this technique (AMP) will provide you with just that.
“I’ve tried a lot of different techniques before being introduced to Advanced Muscle Palpation. The specificity is what sets it apart from other techniques I’ve tried in the past. For me, AMP makes the most sense for a practice serving all age groups because the principles can be applied to everyone.”
“I’ve never clicked with a technique so much before. AMP is a global approach to the body, not just osseous. Instead of motion of palpation, we find fixation through static muscle tone. It’s gentle, comfortable, and easy on the patient.”
“You can tell that Dr. Trent is passionate about AMP and it really shows in his teaching. He did a great job explaining and was knowledgeable about a variety of subjects. I cannot wait to work with him again!”
“Hands down best seminar and I love the combination of vitalistic viewpoint while still respecting there is a physical body we are working with. This seminar will give you clarity about when and where to adjust, plus a way to post check.”
Spinal musculature are the active defenders of proper spinal neurodynamics and are the Chiropractor’s greatest indicators for locating, analyzing and facilitating the correction of vertebral subluxation.
“The muscles of the spine have been an enigma for the Chiropractor for these last 100 years. Muscle palpation has been used more or less intuitively by the field clinician throughout our history. Only within the past 20 years has there been a serious attempt to document the relationship between muscular patterns of activity and the vertebral subluxation.” -Dr. Edward Hartey, DC
