                  Diane, like Mike, I must give you my best congratulations for your nice job. I've just finished the reading of your book this week and i'm very surprised by information that appears in it. I've been learning english languaje last months only for understand better all this nice issue (it's other positive point eh, eh eh,). I want read it again and i'll be ready for ask you some doubts i got. I'm useing DNM with my pacients and at the moment it works very very well, I'm very suprised with all this.:clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2:

                  Best regards to all.

                    Diane,

                    I notice things get a little vague around the elbow region. What would you do for tennis elbow( radial nerve). Within the context of thios manual.

                    Thanks for the input. Great manual BTW.

                      Thanks fopr spotting vagueness proud... I'll put elbow higher up on the list of improvements to make in the next draft. I'm glad you are fnding some useful items in it as is.
                      For readial nerve, I'd get the person's arm into some poition that was commfy for them, the I'd use a balloon technique, most likely.

                        Thanks Diane,

                        This may sound like a stupid question, but what is the "balloon" technique? I don't think I saw it actually defined in the manual?

                        Also, the section on treating the dorsal rami. When you say "investigate hardness" of tissues just off midline. How deep are you palpating approximately?

                        Also, for the side lying technique( dorsal rami section).....I did not follow the "slowly load into the foot, pulling it towards you".....is the knee at 90 degrees. Would you mind clarifying that?

                        I hope you don't mind my questions Diane. I recognize a lot of work went into this manual and I am in essense asking for free instruction. Hope it's okay

                          Are you planning to try a few of these ideas out?
                          Balloon technique isn't defined in the manual. Another place where there's room for improvement. If you use the search engine here on SS, you'll find it described. Just enter balloon technique.
                          Also, the section on treating the dorsal rami. When you say "investigate hardness" of tissues just off midline. How deep are you palpating approximately?
                          Just skin deep. (If tissues are hard, they practically jump right out at you - have you noticed?) You are not going to try to press into them, you're just going to check how big the bungee cords feel, so you can know later if your efforts have helped that person's NS improve its output. Which is not really necessary if you're following along with the action as it happens, but it provides you with another way to check.

                            The patient is prone. Legs are straight.

                              Diane,

                              Are you planning to try a few of these ideas out?
                              Well I currently have a recalcitrant lateral elbow patient. I have utilized mulligan lateral glides but that irritated things( I utilized it because on day one he reported less pain with grip strength after the application of that technique). But after that he got worse.

                              His ULTT is +ve for radial nerve bias. Thus I taped it and went for some cervical lateral glides( Vicenzio et al I think). Also some flossing. No change after 6 sessions.

                              I have read here and must say that much of it makes perfect sense( Much I said....not all). I do believe in deviating from the outcome lit for 3-4 sessions to see what happens.

                              So yes....I am.

                              The patient is prone. Legs are straight
                              I still cannot visualize. It seems I can't reach the two( the L/s and the foot). Or at least I am reaching again and I don't want to strain my darn shoulder again
