The potential effect of Osteopathic techniques and reflex procedures on a wide variety of conditions is being increasingly well documented.
Treatment directed at removing noxious stimuli to the Autonomic Nervous System is an area of particular focus.
By influencing the ANS it is possible to affect the distribution of blood throughout the body. This mitigates, for example, the symptoms of migraine and the micro-trauma to muscle and connective tissue associated with repetition strain injuries. Also, it has been shown that restoring adequate blood perfusion to the brain improves neuron function and visceral function, thereby promoting health.
Restoration of biomechanical efficiency of the body assists:
- Musculo-skeletal conditions such as pain and dysfunction
- Scar tissue release
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis elbow
- Occupational Overuse injuries
- Rotator cuff lesions
- Hiatus Hernia, Urinary urgency, Irritable bowel Syndrome
- Myo-fascial Syndromes
- Spinal disc lesions
