Pain may be due to joints not moving correctly due to misalignment or imbalance in the muscles that move the joint. If you have been in an accident or had an injury your body may have trouble restoring function on it's own. Manual techniques are very effective in improving joint motion and function. A few of the techniques I use include: Muscle Energy, Counterstrain, Mobilization with Movement, and Myofascial Release. Many times your painful area is not the reason you have pain, it is the "victim." I look at your entire body to determine the true cause of your pain and address the area responsible. I do not see a body part walk through the door, I see a whole body. Results are often seen quickly and you may realize pain free motion in just a few treatments. You will also be taught how to maintain pain free motion for lifelong wellbeing. Contact me for more information or to schedule a consult. Manual treatment is very effective.
Pain may be due to dehydrated and damaged connective tissue. Your connective tissue is the most abundant tissue in your body. It has more nerves in it than your brain. This system is what holds your posture in place (good or bad) and keeps you balanced when upright. It is an amazing system you may find very interesting to learn more about. This tissue covers your bones, nerves, blood vessels, and organs. When this system is not functioning in an efficient way you will experience pain in certain positions or postures (like sitting, or standing) as well as pain with certain movements (like bending over or reaching up). There is a powerful self treatment, called The MELT Method, that directly affects this system to eliminate your pain. You will see results in just the first treatment. It is easy to learn, fun to do, and the most effective thing I have seen in 20 years of practice. Contact me for more information, to schedule a consult, or to sign up for a class. You will be very pleased with the result!
Pain may be due to chronic inflammation which occurs when your body reacts to certain foods. You may be very surprised to learn which foods are responsible for this painful issue which can lead to all the "itis" conditions as well as those issues mentioned above. There are substances in certain foods, like arachodonic acid, which triggers your immune system leading to inflammation and pain. When your circulation is impacted in a negative way (by certain foods), pain is one of the most common symptoms. Did you know that back pain is also a common result of impaired circulation? Your lumbar artery provides oxygen and nutrients to your spine's vertebrae and discs. When this is impaired by foods you consume the results are Degenerative Disc Disease and pain. The good news is that it is never too late to turn things around! You can reverse many of the ailments you may be suffering from and enjoy lifelong wellbeing. You just need to know how.
