REBECA PHYSIO CLINIC

When an organ is not moving freely but is fixed to another structure, the body is forced to compensate and could create vector of force pulling on muscles or other organs.


This disharmony creates fixed, abnormal points of tension and the chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems throughout the body - musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urinary, respiratory, and digestive, just to mention a few.


Imagine scar tissue around the lungs. Because of the pull of the adhesion, with every breath, the movement patterns of the nearby structures would be altered. This could shift rib motion creating pulls on the spine.


These restrictions might then show up as mid-back and neck pain, as well as limited motion in the shoulder. This adhesion could be in between the diaphragm and lower back muscles causing a sensation of lower back pain.


This scenario is just one of a thousand possibilities of a small dysfunction - magnified by thousands of repetitions each day. This also explains how pain can often be far removed from the actual affected area.


How Many Sessions Does it Take?


As each person's situation is different, the number of visits will vary. Many people experience significant improvement within three to five therapy sessions; others may require additional treatment. You and your practitioner will develop a plan based on your needs and how your body responds to treatment.

"Viscera" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, lungs, stomach kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction.


Visceral Manipulation or VM, does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. 


The VM therapist feels altered or decreased motion within the viscera as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques through the fascia. VM therapy re-establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health.
