    Mechanical pressure inside the joint capsules involving the phalanyx, metatarsals and tarsals often created muscle splintng/contraction that is very responsive to foot manipulation using high velocity/low force manipulation designed to restore mobility and reduce capsular pressure. The involved joints are determined thru:
    1. Motion palpation
    2. Activator Method Neurologic Reflexes (passive Applied Kinesiology)
    The cerebellum has an amnestic memory of the trauma, 3 to 8 repetitive interventions over a 1 to 6 week period will help 80% recover quite rapidly in spite of traditional treatment measures failing. Please refer to my website and my peer review published papers on the feet at: footchiropractic.com
