What happens to the Skeletal and Muscle Structure, that has this pressure and tightness in them?


1. Damage is caused to the bone structure, ligament and disk when the skeleton is misaligned.

Having the Bone Structure misaligned will put joints under great pressure. These joints are in the toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, vertebra’s of the spine and neck, fingers, hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders.

Repetitive movements of these joints over the years will cause disks to wear out an allow bones to rub against each other causing wear on the shape and size of the bones. When this happen to a vertebra, you place pressure onto the Central Nervous System affecting the Autonomic Nervous System, which in turn affects the organs correct functions. Muscles will also tense tighter than normal, this will cause pain in the joints and if the joint is not put back into its correct position the joints will eventually develop a form of arthritis; when a small section of calcium of the bone is rubbed away, the calcium the body produces to replace the missing calcium, is not formed into the same shape but it is piled on to the freshly exposed calcium; this is why you develop lumps in the joints etc. This build up of excess calcium will push against ligaments and muscles, causing a misalignment to form in them. A ligament that is twisted strongly out of place and does not move will also tighten in on itself as it dry’s out, pulling the joints tighter together causing bone to touch bone, stopping the natural movement of the joint. A ligament that is stretched will go soft. This will allow the joint to come apart causing more pain and eventually loss of movement in the joint.

This build up of calcium will also affect the muscles around the joint. The muscles will be pushed out of shape and then tighten in on themselves.

The disk in the Skeleton Structure (this is the tough fibrous tissue between the bone that stops them from touching each other) can wear away very quickly if the joint its support is misaligned. If the disk is rubbed away, the bones of that joint will touch causing excessive wear on the bones shape. This is seen most often in the disk between the vertebra’s of the spine. When these disk starts to deplete, the Central Nervous System comes under pressure, reducing the function of the Autonomic Nervous System then the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems.


2. Pressure placed on the Central Nervous System by having the vertebra’s out of alignment and the effect.

The pain all M.E./ C.F.S. people feel through out their body in the back, arms, elbows, wrist, fingers, legs, hips, knees, ankles, and feet is because there is pressure on the Central Nervous System.

The pain in the arms can be caused by the Median Nerve being squeezed at the base of the neck or the Cervical 4 to Thoracic 1 vertebra’s being out of alignment.

The Sciatica Nerve of the legs, which is a combination of nerves coming out of the Lumbar 4, Lumbar 5 and Sacrum1, Sacrum 2, Sacrum 3 in the lower back and then continues down the legs into the feet. When the Sciatica Nerve is squeezed, pain will radiate down the leg into the feet. The knees and ankles can become painful to move or stand on.

The pain in the back is being felt because the vertebra’s of the back are being pulled out of position by pressure in the Bone Structure and the contracting of the muscles along side of the spine. This will cause pain in the Central Nervous System extending out into the Autonomic nerves.

This pressure or squeezing of the nerve by the vertebra’s and fixing it by having the vertebra’s realigned by manipulation, is not completely accepted in Western Medicine. Drugs, surgery and pinning of the bone structure are their most recommended solutions. It is what Chiropractic’s base their entire training on. Western Medicine refuses to accept any idea of Western Chiropractic, Western Medicine has been fighting this idea since the turn of the nineteen-century.

The difference’s between Traditional Chinese Medicine and the ideas of Western Chiropractic is that they, the Chiropractor, work on the symptoms and not the cause. An example is that if you had pain in your shoulders, the Chiropractor would look for vertebra’s and ribs misaligned in the local area of pain. Where a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine would start at the feet and work up the “landscape of the body” looking for the first of seven pressure points that are pushing the vertebra’s of the upper back out of place and causing the pain in the shoulders. When all seven pressures are removed, exercises will realign the bones and muscles, the problem in the shoulders will not return. If you only remove one of these seven pressures, the other six will cause the first one to start returning within one hundred steps. A practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine will stretch the body in its natural rotation to place the vertebra back into their correct positions.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine you are shown exercises that will keep this pressure / tightness out of the body by building the muscle back up in their correct position and supporting the bone structure in its original position. When you force a vertebra in your back out of position, you pull the disc away from the bone structure of the vertebra. This area then becomes a weak point in your back, it can take up to seven to nine years to repair itself and this will only happen if this area is completely immobilised, which is impossible to do. The idea is to exercise the muscles back in to their correct position, in and around the bone structure, so that they can support the bones in their correct position. This can dramatically reduce the times that the bone structure moves out of alignment and help the discs to “heal”. The exercises in Traditional Chinese Medicine will teach you how to place the Bone Structure back in to its original position by yourself. When you do this manipulation yourself you cause minimal damage to a discs.

When a disc is compressed or squeezed out of position this will place pressure on the nerve of the Central Nervous System that passes out through the gap between the vertebra’s, this will reduce the electrical impulses that travel along and into the Autonomic Nerve that is attached to that Central Nervous System Nerve. This will cause pain in the back, but will also cause problems to appear in the organ attached to that Autonomic Nerve. This reduction in electrical impulses can cause symptoms to appear in that organ that tells a Western doctor that there is a certain disease or virus in the organ. But when the test results come back it does not confirm 100%, what those symptoms mean to a Western doctor.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, you do not look at an organ as a piece of flesh; it is an energy vibrating fast enough so you can see it as an organ. This “High Qi System” supplies the energy to it. A disruption to this “High Qi System” flow will cause symptoms to appear that cannot be confirmed by the pulses or the outward signs of the body as read in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When this happens, in Shaolin Yao, the first thing you must check is the ‘landscape of the body’ (the position of the bone and muscle structure) to see if this is causing a disruption to the High Qi flow to a particular organ and giving ‘false’ symptoms.


3. When the bone structure of the body is misaligned and what effects it has on muscles and ligaments.

If a joint is forced out of position causing ligament damage, or the ligament is twisted or pulled out of shape and is left in that condition, over a period of time the ligament will start to dry out and become stiff, shrinking in on itself. This will cause a joint to tighten and allow the bones of that joint to touch. This will cause pain initially, left untreated; the bones will start to rub wearing the calcium away. The long-term result of this is a build up of new calcium in the joint causing arthritis and stiffing of the joints.

If a joint in the body is out of alignment, this will pull ligaments into a new position causing them to dry out and pull the bone further out of position effecting the positioning of the muscles in the surrounding area. A ligament keeps itself soft and flexible, by the “oil” the muscle rub into them as the muscle moves backwards and forwards across the ligament surface. If this does not happen the ligament will dry inwards on itself, pulling the bones of the joint further out of position, this will start effecting bone and muscle structure further up the skeleton.

When the bones move out of alignment they will start to effect the muscles groups surrounding them. Muscles that are not in their correct position will start to contract to their central point and this will affect the next muscle above. Then this muscle group will pull bones and ligaments that are near them out of alignment.

Then the cycle will start all over again in the next muscle and slowly progress up the body, until it affects the skull. Pulling the skull back and down. This intern will force the Atlas Vertebra up against the Vagus Nerve and place pressure on the Brain Stem affecting the Central Nervous System.
