What you are about to see is a video animation that describes the bio-mechanical failures of the upper cervical spine that cause the condition known as Frozen Shoulder Syndrome. This video produced by Whole Health Partners isolates the cause of FSS as a neurological disorder.
We will use the video in this post to expand the analysis to the interaction between bio-mechanical impairments of the upper cervical spine and reflexes: automatic involuntary movements generated by the nervous system that can lead to Forward Head Posture and Dystonia.
Gareth Bale is the world’s most expensive soccer player to date. He was transferred in 2013 from the British team Tothenham to the Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid for a world record 139 million US$.
In 4 seasons, Bale has suffered 12 major injuries, resulting in 44 missed games and 256 days without been able to train. He is currently injured and unfit to play.
The majority of Bale’s injuries affect the muscles and tendons of one leg and the muscles that stabilize the pelvis and hips.
In this post we will describe 10 bio-mechanical derangements, impairments and misalignments. Patients suffering from Dystonia (and other neurological movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Tourette’s) tipically present some or all of the 10 described bio-mechanical impairments.
We end the article by discussing how mainstream treatments for Dystonia recommended by academic and clinical Neurology are compatible and complement bio-mechanical treatments.

Guest post by Dr. Lidia Yavich.
The patient of this post contacted me through a derivation from a colleague from abroad.
Soon after he sent an email, where he explained the reason for his consultation on Cervical Dystonia or Spasmodic Torticollis, I answered that it was not my area and that I treated TMJ Pathologies and Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics.
The patient insisted, commenting that the colleague that recommended me and knew me from the AACP meeting where I was invited as a lecturer explained to him that he didn´t know if I treated Dystonia, but he thought that considering what he had watched I could help him.
Dear readers and friends, I post here below a simplified approach to my understanding of “Bruxism” as a form of oromandibular dystonia ad its relation to TMJ.
The post includes a possible treatment and instruction on how to build a lower splint to treat Bruxism.
The proposed treatment is inexpensive, completely reversible, not traumatic and -most importantly- can be executed by patients on their own, at their own home.
Please tear my “theory” to pieces in the comments below … and also tell me what makes sense according to you.
Natural healhty mouth nevert ouched by a dentist compared to one treated by dentists
Please read this post before you consider the convenience of carrying out ANY dental treatment and before you choose the dentist who should carry it out. This post may save your life.
A negligent dental treatment that I underwent two years ago caused -within 24 hours- the onset of Cervical Dystonia. That dentists was just performing the procedures and applying the teachings that he had learned at Dental School.
Since none of the dentists I resorted to could fix my occlusion after that negligent treatment, I started my own research.
And I am now sharing some conclusions, facts and thoughts that resulted from this research.
