Each of the above models describes a pathology and rationale for the ori of the patient's pain and more importantly, indicates the treatment requir Imprecise as the models may be, they suggest the existence of syndromes wit the non specific spectrum that can be identified for therapeutic advanta If the reader can accept that these models could provide the explanation the patient's problem, a logical treatment strategy can now be implement In the case of the Derangement Syndrome, acceptance of the concept model will allow us to predetermine with good reliability the direction of required therapeutic motion.
