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.

“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
