""Neural" refers to the nervous system of the body, which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. This delicate system acts as a communication highway throughout the body, and when it is not operating properly, pain and loss of function can result. Neural Manipulation identifies local nerve restrictions and fixation while examining their effects on the rest of the body. The application of these gentle techniques re-establishes communication in the body and improves its ability to adapt and restore itself to optimal health.Neural Manipulation is a gentle hands-on manual therapy comprised of precise gentle engagement, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissues, and most specifically the nerves. Underneath the pain or diagnosis is a compensatory pattern created in the body with the initial source of the dysfunctionkj often being far from where the pain is felt. Because of this, the practitioner searches for this pattern and the source, and treats the related tissues. As the source of a problem is released, symptoms will start to decrease.People who would benefit from neural manipulation include individuals with low back pain and sciatica, headaches and migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint pain, digestive disorders, post-operative scar tissue pain, whiplash injuries, vertigo, sprains and traumatic lesions, thoracic outlet syndrome, neuralgia and neuritis, tendinitis and more."
