Does the data in this table convince you?
What other possible reasons for this outcome could there be?
Osteopathic Focus on IM concepts.
Roller Coaster loosening stones = vibration, tissue, physiological effects of vibration on stones.

Would same thing work with other stones? Why or why not?
What is it about the tissue that is different?
Are there treatments we can do that will replicate this mechanism?
