Much of manual therapy embodies the concept that a trained practitioner can detect what needs to be Biochemical Emotional done to correct dysfunction in joints, muscles and other tissues of the body. Each of the three components of the naturopathic triad must be in balance to However, the effects of passive manual interventions achieve health. Use the mindmap to help navigate through the information in this chapter and to see the integrated nature of the information presented long-term effects are measured. As Lederman (1997) response which allows the patient to recognize that argues, this is because most manual interventions they are now in a better postural position or func- affect the patient at the peripheral reflexive level. This is what is sometimes called ‘the this level, little or no motor learning occurs, so the parking lot test’ – does the patient’s postural or func- movement dysfunction which brought about the tional correction last as far as the parking lot? If yes, tissue stress and dysfunction in the first instance may then perhaps what we hoped would happen, has not be addressed.

Additionally, the active subsystem may be Active movement or rehabilitation approaches, by further divided into two systems, the deepest muscles their very nature, must affect the patient at the central typically having a stabilizer dominance and the more level. The central nervous system has to be consciously superficial muscles having a mobilizer dominance – engaged in order to achieve prescribed movement, in again this is discussed further below. In addition to such motor learning practitioner must first understand which components prerequisites, etiological features – which may fall of joint stability are affected (usually all three) and outside of the immediate motor learning remit – must then – based on the case history, the onset and nature also be addressed. For example, through appropriate of symptoms – reason which system is the primary local rehabilitation, proprioception and motor control symptom generator. In order for any moving joint apparent that the latter equates to a higher proportion to have biomechanical stability, it must have a func- of pain patients than the former. As Gracovetsky (2004) points out, a passive support Stress and strain system is useless without an active muscle subsys- Hans Selye is reported to have said ‘the complete absence of stress is death’. Within the natural homeo- static environment of the body we expect to have Neural stresses to challenge the regulatory functions of the organism (see Chapter 2). From a movement and rehabilitation perspective, Liebenson (2002a) and Sahr- mann (2002) explain that both too much and too little tissue stress have a detrimental effect on tissue integ- rity. If exposed to too little stress, the required Passive Active beneficial adaptation is not attained.

Sceptics about the notion of ‘diVerence’ warn that ‘an aYrm- ation of the strengths of female ‘‘diVerence’’ which is unaware of [female suppression] may be doomed to repeat some of the sadder subplots in the history of Western thought’ (Lloyd purchase venlafaxine 150mg overnight delivery, 1993: p venlafaxine 150 mg on-line. Kristeva order venlafaxine 75mg without a prescription, 1984), ShenWeld notes that ‘Kristeva argues that we cannot respect and accept strangers if we have not accepted our own portion of strangeness, in other words, the stranger within ourselves. The implication for cloning is that the parent(s) seeking reproductive cloning cannot accept that strangeness, car- ried in the matrix of the gestating mother. Another psychoanalytical question concerns the child thus con- ceived, rather than the parent: how will the child cope with building his or her sexual identity? The cloning debate has been treated very largely in conventional bioethical terms, as a matter of the domain of rightful choice of the rational consumer of medical care. Foregrounding diVerence and the construction of the subject, ShenWeld suggests instead that rationality is less important than identity and subjectivity. Writing from the viewpoint of public policy rather than psychoanalytical theory, the Finnish political scientist and development scholar Sirkku Hell- sten asks the diYcult question, ‘Where does legitimate cultural diVerence in obstetric and gynaecological practice end, and discrimination against women begin? Dickenson argument from within the liberal, contractarian tradition, and adding a feminist concern with diVerence, Hellsten concludes that we are not so bound. She oVers practical solutions to problems of multicultural working which allow clinicians to maintain their own moral view without aVronting other cultures, drawing on her own experience. Thus he takes our thinking back a step or two – rather than simply asserting, as many have done, that procreative freedom is valuable, he asks us to think about why it is valuable. Here the issues resemble those considered by Hellsten, and again, it is from philosophers and political theorists that the ‘practical’ professions of medicine and nursing can draw the most help. Essentially Strong argues for a consequentialist approach to what confers moral standing on infants, fetuses and pre-embryos, examining their degree of resemblance to the sorts of creatures whom it is socially beneWcial to regard as persons. Conclusion I have not chosen to categorize these 21 chapters by the author’s professional background, because it would be counter-productive in terms of the book’s philosophy to do so. What is remarkable about the four issues that I have chosen is that they unite clinicians and non-clinicians, as indeed the book as a Introduction 15 whole aims to do. All of the categories, however, number at least one clinician among the contributors, in proximity to lawyers, medical ethicists, philosophers, political scientists and sociologists. One thing which unites these disparate backgrounds is a concern with ‘everyday ethics’ – this is not a book about hypothetical situations, but about real clinical decisions. Sometimes the topics which the authors have chosen to cover, having been asked to bear ‘everyday ethics’ uppermost in mind, may seem surprising – for example, why should compliance in pregnancy raise ethical issues? After reading Baylis and Sherwin on compliance, together with the other articles in the book, I hope that the reader will be persuaded of two things: (1) that ethical debates in maternal–fetal medicine are unavoidable because the ambit of ethics is much more extended than might have been thought, but (2) that they are also neither insoluble nor entirely a matter of personal opinion. In the Wrst case, involving a pregnant woman at 36 weeks of gestation, the obstetrician believed there was placental insuY- ciency, a condition in which the fetus was not getting enough oxygen. The doctor recommended Caesarean delivery for the fetus’s sake, but the woman refused the Caesarean, stating that she was putting her faith in God that everything would turn out well. This would involve attempting to fertilize the ova in vitro, observing whether fertilized ova develop normally to the blastocyst stage, and then discarding them. Is procreative freedom valuable simply because freedom in general is valuable, or is there special signiWcance to the fact that the freedom in question is procreative? Although there is no way to prove what the correct answers are to these main questions, we can give arguments for and against diVerent answers, and we can try to decide what answers are best supported by arguments. For any particular case or issue, it usually will be necessary to bring in additional considerations, facts and arguments in order to arrive at a conclusion. For example, it would be wrong to have a law stating that no one may use in vitro fertilization, simply because a particular religion holds that it violates God’s commandments. Secondly, a framework should put forward and defend a view concerning the moral status of oVspring during the pre-embryonic, embryonic, fetal and postnatal stages of development. Its approach to prioritizing should be capable of taking into account all relevant ethical considerations, and it should provide practi- cal guidance in resolving policy questions and individual cases. To answer this question, I suggest that some insight can be gained by starting with what might be called ‘ordinary procreation’ – not involving in vitro fertilization, ovum donation or any type of assisted reproduction. My strategy is to try to understand why having genetic oVspring might be meaningful to people in this ordinary scenario, and then use this understanding to address the newer, more controversial situations. Studies have identiWed a number of reasons people actually give for having genetic children, some of which seem selWsh or confused (Pohlman, 1974; Arnold, 1975; Laucks, 1981). The views on which these reasons seem to be based – that virility is central to the worth of a man, and that women must have babies to prove their femininity – are unwarranted. To be clear, what we are about to explore is not the descriptive question of what reasons people actually give, but the normative question of whether there are 20 C. Perhaps not all who have children think about it in terms of creating a person, but this is a reason that can be given to help justify the desire for genetic oVspring. Also, the satisfaction that derives from altruistic behaviour should not be over- looked, given that pregnancy can involve signiWcant sacriWces for the sake of the fetus. These reasons also help explain why freedom to procreate should be valued; namely, because procreation can be important to persons in the ways just discussed, including contributing to self-identity and self-fulWllment.
