The entire connective tissue matrix, the largest organ of the body, is controlled by the unifying influence of water.
A practiced eye can see enough to confirm the questions asked during the case history.
Whilst standing the patient is asked to do specific active movements which either relieve or aggravate the symptoms giving further information to forming a diagnosis.
It is the most brilliantly logical diagnostic procedure.
You can see the whole patient, their inherited shape, age, weight, skin, muscle and connective tissue state and how the patient has adapted. Specific exercises make the examination 'live'.
Treatment can then be based on the examination of the whole patient rather than on perfect x-ray alignment which hardly ever exists.
