NEURAL MANIPULATION

 

Neural Manipulation, an Osteopathic modality, gently releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body. Releasing a nerve compression creates freedom and movement within the nervous system. This has a flow on effect to the connective tissue (fascia) that holds our bodies together, changing the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.


For a nerve to function at its best it needs to be able to move freely (up to 10cm) within its surrounding structures. Neural Manipulation enhances proper functioning of the nervous system - one of the communication highways throughout the body.


 

A flexible nerve is essential for:

  • Nerve conduction.
  • Electromagnetic conduction.
  • Intraneural blood and nerve supply.
  • Local and systemic responsiveness.

 

When a nerve becomes fixated, sections of the nerve can harden creating a very sensitive or painful to touch ‘nerve bud’.


 

Nerve buds can come about by:

  • Neurotrophic disease, eg shingles.
  • Body posture imbalances.
  • Mechanical force or energies such as friction, pressure, or traction.
  • Severe or repetitive mirco-traumas such as muscle contractions, bad posture, small sprains, or non-physiological movement.

 

Treatment sessions use precise applied pressure on local nerve fixations.  This can quite easily have a more global effect on a dysfunctional pattern that is affecting different parts of the body. For example, carpel tunnel like symptoms could be stemming from a nerve fixation within the abdomen.
