has been influenced by pioneers in the
field other than Dr. Cyriax; for example: Robin McKenzie, PT;
Brian Mulligan, PT; Dr. Nikolai Bogduk, PhD; Dr. Alf Nachemson, MD,
PhD; Dr. Janet Travell, MD; Geoffrey Maitland, PT; Dr. Werker
and others.



Dr. Cyriax developed a method of assessing the soft tissue of the
musculoskeletal system, using a process of diagnosis by selective
tension,which uses passive movements to test the inert structures and
resistedmovements in order to test the contractile structures. His starting
point was the premise that all pain has a source; and, as a simple
conclusion to that statement, it was clear that to be effective all treatment
must reach the source, and must benefit the lesion.

"All pain has a source"
"All treatment must reach the source"
"All treatment must benefit the lesion"
