  • Respondents who Agreed with the Classification of the Demonstrated Technique (Muscle Energy was one of their 3 choices)
    • Nice demo and explanation!
    • Both the method of diagnosis and the description thereof were confusing and in certain respects invalid: for example, translation of C2 does NOT evaluate side bending of C2 but rather, physiologically, induces side bending of C3 on C2 and progressively caudally as additional force is applied and of at least the occiput, if not to a limited extent the atlas, on C2 as well.
    • I would like to see in the future maybe a break down of the different types of MET
  • Respondents who Disagreed with Classification of the Demonstrated Technique (Muscle Energy was not one of their 3 choices)
    • ser na direção da facilitação (from Google Translate: be in the direction of facilitation)
