"Have you ever woken up with crippling back or neck pain wondering how you managed to sleep so wrong? While neck and back pain can be caused my muscle strains, ligament sprains, and other forms of acute injury, some spinal pain is actually due to inflammation and irritation of specific organs. All of our organs are surrounded by fascia and that helps anchor them in the abdomen. However, each organ should be able to glide and move as we move through our day. When an organ becomes inflamed the fascia gets stuck and the organ is restricted from moving. This causes even more inflammation that irritates the nearby nerves. These nerves travel up the back to the spine and the irritation and inflammation can spread up the nerve and cause pain in the back or neck. Practitioners who are skilled in visceral massage and applied kinesiology can help pinpoint the cause of your neck or back pain and treat the underlying organ causing the dysfunction. As a naturopathic doctor I will be able to provide massage, naturopathic manipulation techniques, and applied kinesiology to help treat your referred pain by getting to the root cause."
