Hi, thanks for the comeback and informative comment.

I recall in the 1970's reading some very impressive articles and perhaps
research and clinical application of measuring globally the lowback and
determining vectors and magnitude for alignment procedures. I believe the
author was a Burl Pettibon, D.C. of Tacoma, Washington (State).

His determinations made sense and were reasonable and I understand that his
methods combined with a Clarence Gonstead, D.C. 's measurement and alignment
method from an earlier time regarding the sacroiliac articulations resulted
in tremendous clinical outcomes.

The distinguishing part for me is that how long it takes for the mainstream
to catch up with the leading edge of discovery in the life sciences. Here
you present recent quality studies published in 1997 while earlier than the
1970's others were already gaining tremendous results.

And so the topic of others, currently, comes to mind. Here while the world
struggles with low back pain...there are some and there are some methods
where quantifying the area of displacement where the brain stem joins the
spinal cord. The complexity a challenge, the variation of configuration
pales the severity of the Rubic's cube...and while predicted correction
alignments are being made to the superior aspect of the spine, other neuro
phenomena are coming into play with astounding clinical results driving the
practitioners to desire to know just where is the edge of the discovery
envelope in the de-aberration of the brain stem (achieved through
biomechanical corrections to the upper cervical spine) is headed.

Painful neck abatement methods, like those of the lowback, are producing
clinical bi-products of visceral and systems restoration of normal function.

While vast amounts of mind and money are being spent deservedly on
extremity and low back research with often radical Tx methods and
recommendations; the outcome is perhaps paltry in comparison to where
science, given sufficient consideration, will take the endeavors of those
mining the gems of the brain stem itself.

Why is it that so little giant steps are taken in human health? The Sons of
Seattle (the City not the Chief) did this with their computers.

Perhaps, Dr. Triano, you have influence enough to speed up the evolution of
biomechanics as it relates to the neuro-spine allowing us to move further
and faster in our lifetimes.

Your credentials and position make the challenge yours. I am only a humble
observer. Didn't I see you lecture once in, was it Ilheus, or was it Sao
Salvador, Bahia, Brasil. It was a very good neuro-seminar as was that
incredible part of the world and its people.

Thank you,
