This section is the bread and butter to McDougle Chiropractic Methods.
Conceptually, using the long lever manipulations / mobilizations / adjustments performed by the majority of manual therapists and doctors, makes little sense when we consider the fact that performance is decreased in static stretch activities! Science has shown consistently since the mid 90’s that a hyperstimulation of stretch receptors in ligaments, tendons, and muscles change the nervous system dynamic. This multijoint, high velocity, short lever burst method from Dr. McDougle has shown to enhance the athlete’s performance immediately after the treatment with either a significant re-establiment of proper function after an injury and/or immediate enhanced performance on the field of competition! The significance is the consistent repetition of positive responses to this technique that can be measured not only in athletic performance but in the clinical setting as well.
