This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. Nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction.

Nerve compression or entrapment

Pressure or compression on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone. The nerve is unable to properly conduct its signal. There are many potential causes for a pinched nerve, depending on the location of the nerve.

Treatment involves:

  1. Location, identification and treatment of trigger points
  2. Postural and biomechanical correction
  3. Restore neurological pathways
