OTZ METHODS- The Cervical-Thoracic Junction Adjusting  (C6-T4)

OTZ Methods breaks down all the aspects of this critical Cervical-Thoracic Junction. This area represents the most difficult area of the spine to adjust. Also it is the rate-limiting step of success in most care plans. The complexities of the area are numerous.  This area features a change in the contour or curve of the spine commonly referred to as a transitional area. It is also characterized by the confluence of many tissues, which make this area critical to fluid cervical and thoracic function. Becoming a master adjuster in the cervical-thoracic junction proves to be critical in achieving lasting, positive clinical change in health. Here in lies the reason we have named the cervical-thoracic junction “The Vault”.

  1. The Cervical-Thoracic Junction “Blowing the Vault”

  2. Three Strategies to adjust

  3. The Clavicle

    • The Acromio-clavicular Junction

    • The Sterno-clavicular Junction

  4. The Sternum

    • Anterior Sternal Adjusting

    • Manubrium

  5. Upper Rib Adjusting
