Neural Manipulation Therapy

A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move feely within its surrounding structures. The modality of Neural Manipulation facilitates nerve conductivity and intraneural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness. By understanding the detailed anatomy of the nervous system, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted.

Neural Manipulation examines mechanical relationships between the cranium/spinal bones to the dura (fascia) and neural elements (nerve tissue). It provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examining the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body.  By accessing this relationship, more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns can be resolved.

Manual therapy, as it applies to the treatment of nerves, follows the standard principles of mobility and function. For a nerve to function best it must be able to move freely within its surroundings. This freedom of movement is essential for:

  • nerve conduction
  • electromagnetic conduction
  • intraneural blood supply
  • intraneural nerve supply
  • local and systemic responsiveness

Comparative studies found Neural Manipulation beneficial for various disorders such as:

Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
Headaches & Migraines
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Joint Pain
Digestive Disorders
Post-operative Scar Tissue Pain
Swallowing Dysfunctions
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Whiplash Injuries
Birth Injuries
Neuralgia & Neuritis
Sprains & Traumatic Lesions
Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injuries
And More
