Neural Manipulation

Neural refers to the nervous system of the body, which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.  A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move freely within its surrounding structures.  The nervous system acts as a communication highway throughout the body.  When the nervous system becomes dysfunctional:

• it will cause the body to protect or compensate to help that area
•  its responsiveness is diminished
•  the body's ability to utilize its innate self-corrective abilities is hindered
•  the body's constant search for equilibrium becomes more difficult.

Neural Manipulation (NM) identifies local nerve restrictions and fixation (when "fixed," a nerve cannot glide and/or stretch, causing sensitivity and pain) while examining their effects on the rest of the body.  NM is a gentle, hands-on therapy, comprised of precise engagement, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissues and nerves to re-establish neural communication throughout the body.  As the source of a problem is released, symptoms will start to decrease and the body’s ability to adapt and restore itself will improve.

NM can benefit:

•  Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
•  Headaches and Migraines
•  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
•  Joint Pain
•  Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
•  Whiplash Injuries
Tendinitis and Sprains

Once assessed and treated with NM, our therapists might suggest complementary treatment modalities, including physiotherapy, massage therapy and acupuncture.
