What does manual therapy mean in my understanding? This is a non-violent and gentle system for healing the spine and joints.
There is such an idea as “light manual therapy”. The difference from all experts in this field is in the fact that the classical manual therapeutist puts the person who comes to him on the couch and begins to fit the joints and the spine. Light manual therapy using the Shiatsu method comes into the contact with the body, relaxes it and after the specialist is sure that the body is “open” for harmonization, with the light movements invites the slipped intervertebral disc back on it’s place.
The main indications for manual therapy usage:
- Back pain as an overall inconvenience
- Discal hernia
- Curvature of the spine (scoliosis)
- Arthrosis that are accompanied by pain and a decrease in the joint movements amplitude
- Headache, dizziness
- Restriction of active movements due to muscle tension
- Recovery period after the locomotive system injuries
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Malignant neoplasms
- Thrombosis or, on the contrary, a tendency to bleeding
- Suspected case of acute surgical pathology
- Mental illness
After a course of therapy, a Person finds freedom and lightness in the shoulder that facilitates blood circulation in the vessels of the brain. This means the body rests more, and during the sleep recovers faster. As a result, it is easier for all body systems to regenerate in the natural way.
Gently twisting, without violence, we are returning the intervertebral discs to the anatomical position. It releases the nerve terminals and regulates blood circulation not only in the problem area, but also it enriches the muscles’ frame with oxygen, stimulating the body’s regenerative system to self-healing of intervertebral hernias! All this is done by experienced and sensitive hands.
After completing the course of treatment, a Person receives a set of exercises for self-strengthening of ligaments and muscle apparatus in the back. Thus, with the regular spine exercises, the repeated pain in the shoulders and lower back is excluded.
