Topic: Neurology 356: Receptors and Subluxation – Deafferentation or Dysafferentation?

Credit Hours: 2

Instructor: Michael Hall, DC, FIACN

Course Description: Defining the root cause of the problem can be vexing for many clinical practitioners. Chiropractors have always sought to identify the cause of a patient’s suffering. When an adjustment is applied to a subluxated articulation there is a new freedom of motion that is experienced than what was present prior to the adjustment. Terminology has been suggested to better explain what subluxation means from a physiological cause / effect perspective – Deafferentation / Dysafferentation. The discussion will explore both terms and give insight into how we can use or not use in everyday practice.

Course Outline:

  • Definitions of Deafferentation and Dysafferentation
  • Articular Neurology and the Subluxation Complex
  • Orientation of receptors in spinal articulations
  • Hilton’s Law and Diaschisis

Learning Objectives:

  • Define both Deafferentation and Dysafferentation.
  • Discuss receptor physiology, amplitude potentials, and frequency of firing.
  • Review neurophysiology and the subluxation.
  • Outline developmental diaschisis and clinical considerations.
