Neurological Manipulation

Neurological therapy

The nervous system is one of the communication highways throughout the body.  Neural Manipulation developed by French Osteopaths, Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier, examines mechanical relationships between the hard frame of the cranium and spine to the neural elements and dura to enhance proper functioning of the nervous system. Neural Manipulation provides a treatment approach to address the neural and dural restrictions that often are not in the spotlight when musculoskeletal symptoms are present. Neural Manipulation, however, is designed to release the local nerve restrictions while simultaneously examining the effects these local fixations may have on the the body as a whole. In turn, this integrative treatment allows for a more global resolve rather than treating symptoms alone.

Proper function in the body requires movement, the same goes for the nerve. Pathologies can arise from neural restrictions. Neural Manipulation techniques are in place to improve nerve conductivity and intraneural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness.

Comparative studies found Neural Manipulation beneficial for disorders such as:
  • Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint Pain
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Post-Operative Scar Tissue Pain
  • Swallowing Dysfunctions
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Whiplash Injuries
  • Birth Injuries
  • Neuralgia & Neuritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains & Traumatic lesions
  • Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injuries

Neurologicial Therapy FAQ's

Neural Manipulation treatment often extends beyond the local area of treatment. The tension of the perineurium and all other neural connective tissues is transmitted down to the root sheaths, thus the distal contact by the advanced treating therapist has a central mechanical and reflexogenic effect.

Additionally, Manual Neural Manipulation changes intra and extra-neural pressure, improves sympathetic function to blood vessels due to the auto-innervation of the sympathetic gangli and sympathetic innervation of perineural connective tissues both of which are affected with treatments of fixations in the nerve sheath.

Manual Neural Manipulation uses extreme precision. Although subtle, the impact is significant. The highly trained therapist uses discretion to not overwork the neurological tissue.
