I work with your body’s soft tissue. Typically there is an underlying reactive “spasm” pattern or what we refer to as “clumped” tissue (muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, arteries, nerves) behind a chronic condition. You may not be able to feel it on the surface and it may not be obvious to you that tissue spasm is causing your pain, but the area of your “clumping” is where your problem is usually hiding. I can find the spasm and “de-clump” the tissue by rigorously working it in a specific manner and direction. There is no chiropractic adjustment involved and I work interactively with you while you inform me where the pain is coming from. Unlike traditional deep muscle or myofascial methods of pain relief where muscles tighten and spasm increases in intensity, with this work you can relax and breathe while clumped tissue is correctly restructured. My patients often leave a session feeling thoroughly and meticulously “worked” in their areas of pain.
This work prevents back, shoulder, hip, and knee surgery. There has been no medical proof of a correlation between discs and back or joint pain. Many people have severely degenerated spines or joint spaces with no remaining discs or cartilage, and yet they experience little or no pain. If the cause of pain were the degenerated joint, everyone with degenerated joints would have pain.
