 Functional Analysis Technique”

Dr. Fred Clary utilizes a chiropractic spinal analysis and adjusting technique called “Functional Analysis Technique.” This information is to allow you to better understand the basis for this technique and how it affects your body.

Efficient Inhalation

Normal Physiological Breathing Wave

Initiates as coccyx – sacrum

·      Functional Analysis bases its technique on gentle touch and light thrusting by hand or instrument. This low-force adjusting method allows the nervous system to better integrate and understand the new corrective information and to process it throughout the spinal cord and brain.

·      Functional Analysis utilizes your breathing patterns and how you walk and move to determine the most appropriate places to treat, not just pain. Reconnecting your body with your brain is one of our main goals.

·      Your spinal corrections do not stop once you get off the table. They continue as you breath and move. You may notice that you hear a click or popping sound in your spine later on the same day after the functional analysis adjustment. That’s your body realigning and correcting its own subluxations.

·      Functional Analysis teaches and empowers your body to make more corrections and healing with ongoing care.

·      Because analysis and correction are not limited to just the area of pain and symptom, integration tends to be more complete and healing experiences are deeper in all areas of the body, mind, and emotions. Functional Analysis can be used to treat patient’s with mental health disorders, children with ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy, chronic pain and other developmental disorders. 

Functional Analysis works by increasing appropriate sensory input into the patient’s central nervous systems painlessly and effectively. It leads to profound neurological changes that benefit everyone – no matter what symptom or level of health they are currently experiencing.

Just a few examples of the hundreds of Pathological Breathing Patterns

Inefficient Breathing Wave

·         Lumbar Initiation

Inefficient Breathing Wave

·         Thoracic Initiation

Inefficient Breathing Wave

·         Cervical Initiation

Variable Initiation

·         May initiate a few times normally then will initiate at a different region. After a few cycles may either return to the first pattern or start another inefficient pattern.

·         Possible limbic system dysfunction (anxiety, depression, schizophrenia)

Possible CNS-affecting drugs
