The Council on Extremity Adjusting (CEA) is a non-profit post-graduate educational organization which has established a course of study for the certification of chiropractors in extremity practitioning. The CEA recognizes that treatment of the whole body requires synchrony between the nervous system and the mechanical control system of the kinetic chain. Subluxations of any joint have both neurological and mechanical components. Mechanoreceptors are embedded in the tissues surrounding joints. When these tissues get stretched by a misalignment of the joint, this activates an inhibition or weakening of the adjacent muscle. Discovery of these weak muscles and correction of the misaligned joint to restore normal strength is the specialty of the CCEP doctor.
