Doug also shows the postural alignment, quadrant test, anterior shear test, Spinal spring test, posterior inferior SI shear test, and other muscular tests. Then Doug demonstrates the nerve tension tests. Finally Doug shows bodywork techniques to free the nerve along it's path all the way down the leg.
