The Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT) is visceral fascia therapy, a system of SOT protocols for the diagnosis and treatment of organ function (liver, gallbladder, heart, kidneys, uterus, etc.) via the neurological connections to the spinal tract. Each posterior spinal nerve root innervates certain organs, muscles and specific skin regions. Each of these areas of the body use common nerve pathways to effectively communicate outgoing (efferent) and incoming (afferent) messages to and from the central nervous system (brain and umbilical cord). This is how the body regulates itself.
Visceral fascia act as a suspension and embedding of the internal organs and their blood supply and innervation. All viscera are surrounded by layers of connective tissue. These double layers of membranes surround the organs and line the chest, abdominal and pelvic walls. The skin of the organ itself is called the “visceral peritoneum” - the fascial membrane that lies against the inner walls of the trunk is called the parietal peritoneum. The hanging straps (mesos) correspond to the double layers just mentioned, since the individual organs sprouted into these visceral fasciae as tiny organ systems in our embryonic period.
Old inflammations (e.g. endometriosis), the consequences of operations (adhesions) and scars then put a strain on the organs and their healthy activity, which in turn can cause pain and difficulties in the musculoskeletal system.
CMRT is a practical soft tissue technique that deals with the visceromatic reflex arc, whereby in the thorax, abdomen, pelvis, chest, and the pelvic cavity, adhesions are loosened by gentle manual movements between the organs and their fasciae. This increases the overall mobility and mobility of the organs and increases their functionality. In this way, pain and dysfunction caused by viscerosomatic stress and the resulting musculoskeletal disorders can be prevented and treated.
