skillful or dexterous treatment by the hands. In physical therapy, the forceful passive movement of a joint beyond its active limit of motion.
joint manipulation the attempt to restore the full joint mobility by a single forceful movement. It may be performed with the patient under anesthesia, as when restoring knee or shoulder motion after prolonged loss of motion with formation of adhesions that limit joint play. Joint manipulation applied to a spinal joint (usually referred to as high-velocity) is a short-amplitude thrust that is beyond the patient's voluntary control; it is always performed with the patient conscious.

Patient discussion about manipulation

Q. Do you want to learn how we got manipulated by some? I noticed an educational video about Asthma here on this site. I hope it helps. Listen to it and read my answer about it. Thank you for your patience. Does it help you to understand?

A. If you find another video or a text and you are not sure about the content, tell me about it and I will study it and present it here to help you understand with the community. In the moment that you start to listen and read between the lines you will got a kick, but a healthy one. We are here to help you and when I can also teach you this way and it helps you, I will do my best.

I am the topic-manager for "bipolar disorder", "depression" and new for "diabetes" too.

Read my answers with two critical eyes, test me, check me, check it out, to become a professional tester and checker in health and other themes. I check always first my doctors before I keep them. But then the distance is for me irrelevant, because such a good doctor is for me very precious!

Q. Do you want to learn how we got manipulated by some? I noticed an educational video about Asthma. I hope it helps. Listen to eat and read my answer about it. Thank you for your patience.

A. Listen to what the man tells you right at the beginning of this video. "You are not alone... learning to CONTROL the SYMPTOMS of asthma and COPD... therefore more can be done to help you MANAGE YOUR SYMPTOMS and live a fuller life...". Do you hear what they say to you? Do they talk about curing you from Asthma? NO, they tell you to keep your symptoms and to learn to live with it. Are they interested that you get rid of your Asthma? NO, they just want you to keep it that way, but some shity drugs should keep you asthmatic, so that they can earn money with you... Listen exactly to what people tells you. Learn with this simple example the subtle way they pretend to help you, but they are absolutely not interested to cure you! Do you see the problem which is around us with such hypocrites/pretenders? I am grateful for this good bad example. Asthma can be cured, but you should not know about it. Please learn to understand. I thank you for your attention.

Q. You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not... President Abraham Lincoln said: You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

A. By the way, Abraham Lincoln had Sanpaku eyes. Other persons with this different eyes were Marylin Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Herbert von Karajan, Bette Davis, Michael Chaplin, Willy Brandt, Harry Belafonte, Natalie Wood, Günter Grass, Vincent L. Broderick, Joe Curran, Mark A. Fein, Charles E. Wright and many others like lixurion999.
