With tests, we determine where the problem is, centrally or peripherally.
For example, in a nerve injury at the point where the nerve comes out of the spinal canal, all the above connective tissue, which is growing there, pushes the nerve even further. The mobilization of the neural tissue aims at “widening” the point of injury and along with the flexibility, the same nerve point will not be being pressed.
The slump test is diagnostic, but we can use it therapeutically in a radiculitis (central and peripheral nervous system dilatation).
