I never said that the chiropractors ever did anything with stabilization.
Would you care to point out where I did? To my knowledge their focus has
always been on vertebral *position* and its supposed effect on nervous
tissue. As I've said, Sahrmann has thrown in the pathologic, unstable
nature of spondylolithesis into this mix and it doesn't belong here.
The "core researchers" have *not* been well-received by large portions of
the research and clinical communities. The best resource for this is in the
archives of the "Supertraining" list on Yahoo groups.
