"If you have heard of Mirror Therapy or Nerve Glides then you"ve already heard of the work of David Butler.
The idea is to actually "trick your brain" which can change the synapses in your brain to help your body correctly respond the once practical but now useless pain signals being sent from your hand.
Mirror therapy is a technique that David created to help facilitate a healthy connection between the brain and the region of our body that is experiencing pain. This is especially useful for things like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or Phantom limb pain. However, if can also be useful for more common problems like arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.
The next fascinating treatment David has developed for chronic pain is called nerve glides.
Nerves are covered in a "Myelin sheath". A simple way to imagine this sheath is to think of a piece of spaghetti wrapped in Saran wrap. This Saran wrap, or "Mylein sheath" protects the nerve as it sends sensory signals from your body to your brain.
After a trauma to any part of your body. You might develop restrictions in your myelin sheath which can cause your nerve to send pain signals to your brain.
By "gliding" these nerves within their sheath, you can eliminate this restriction and eliminate your pain.
Unlike a yoga position which is generally held for a few cycles of breath, nerve glides involve short quick movements in and our of "tensioners" and "relievers" of your nerves. Here is David again showing nerve glides for radial and ulnar nerves in the arm."
