Neural Manipulation


How Does Neural Manipulation Help You?

Do you suffer from chronic pain???  Symptoms from whip lash; like frozen shoulder, back pain or knee pain that can be reduced or permanently eradicated with this simple non-evasive technique.

Here is additional scientifical / educational information about how NM benefits and relieves most trauma induced pain symptoms.

With interferences in certain body zones, the respective spinal cord and/or brain structures may also be irritated. A peripheral nerve treatment can influence these so-called facilitated areas and therefore promote a common or systemic effect. Manual treatments are basically effective due to the mechanical effects that cause neural stimuli, which can be transmitted at a local or central level. Manual neural manipulation changes intra- and extraneural pressure, improves sympathetic function to blood vessels due to the auto-innervation of the sympathetic gangli and sympathetic innervation of peri-neural connective tissues both of which are affected with treatment of fixations in the nerve sheaths.

When a nerve is affixed to surrounding tissue, it typically loses its ability to glide and/or stretch or lengthen. This results in an increase in neural pressure and the nerve pathway loses blood supply, allowing pain and weakness along the nerve pathway creating painful trigger points and the resulting pain compensation patterns. Neural Manipulation therapy allows nerves to be released from adhesions and the surrounding tissues rehydrated for regained flexibility to keep blood and electric conductivity moving through the neural pathways.

Neural Fixations

When a nerve is fixed, it typically looses its ability to glide and/or stretch in length. The intra- or peri-neural pressure dramatically increases, at the same time there are changes in consistency. The nerve pathway shows functional interferences (blood supply or electric and/or electromagnetic conductivity).

With fixation smaller nerve sections can harden. They feel like buds and are very sensitive or painful to the touch. Such “Nerve Buds” are an indication of an intraneural interference, an overload of physiological pressure points or a local fibrosis. Nerve buds can be released very quickly, sometimes within one therapy session.

Palpation of the skin branches of peripheral nerves can be useful for evaluative, as well for therapeutic considerations. When evaluating the skin branches, if they are sensitive or painful to pressure, typically there is a fixation of the deeper nerve branches.
