Frank, I also use this "springing or rebounding" technique quite often and always try the external techniques to see if they are effective before going internal. By the way, these rebounding techniques are also very effective when used to manipulate the costotransverse or costochondral articulations Rick

Don't forget that it is possible to perforate the rectum making this a dangerous procedure. I had an incident where it was a clear cut case of a dislocated coccyx. I went the the physician and explained what I found. A new x-ray confirmed. The original plan was to make time to go to the physicians office to complete this procedure (let's face it, this was great face time with the Doc). Luckily, the physician was a DO and decided to proceed himself. The pt improved considerably and I didn't have to get my hands dirty...er...bad choice of expressions?
