“The New Manual Articular Approach to the Upper Limb”.
Jean Pierre is “The” leading Osteopath in the World at the moment, and his approach is very common sense and methodical. There is a beauty in his approach – which appears simple, but belies his real depth of knowledge and understanding of the subtleties and connections that underlie common Shoulder and Arm problems.
I came away from the course with a much greater understanding of Osteopathy.
New Manual Articular Approach (MAA) was developed in clinical practice by world-renowned French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral. French Osteopath Alain Croibier collaborated with Jean-Pierre Barral to develop MAA. The courses are based on clinical techniques personally developed by Jean-Pierre Barral combined with Alain Croibier’s scientific information.
New Manual Articular Approach is a manual therapy modality that applies a comprehensive approach to the treatment of joints. It integrates all aspects of the joint including the nerve, artery, bone, capsule, and ligaments, as well as visceral and emotional connections. MAA delves into the joints like never before. It examines the nerves of each joint, along with the arteries, meniscus, ligaments, capsule attachments and folds. It incorporates soft tissue mobilization of the associated bones, while looking at direct and indirect relationships between the bones of the body. The relationship between the viscera and the joints is not widely understood. MAA shows how interconnected they are and that without addressing this visceral connection many joint issues may not fully resolve.
