Common Compensatory Pattern

Related Authors: Gordon Zink, D.O.

"J. Gordon Zink, DO was the originator of the term Common Compensatory Pattern (CCP). He used the term to describe commonly found patterns of dysfunction in the body as a whole.

Dr. Zink, however, is considered to be "... the first to provide a written, understandable, and clinically useful explanation for treatment, with a method of diagnosing and manipulative methods of treating the fascial patterns of the body." Zink himself considered these concepts to be the basis of a respiratory and circulatory care model.

There appears to be an inherent fascial bias found in most people. There also appears to be a causal linkage between fascial bias and subsequent growth of the individual."
