Manipulation is a technique administered by the clinician in order to increase the overall range of motion within the physiological joint space. This helps restore the full function to the nervous, muscular and lymphatic systems with an aim to reduce pain that the patient could be experiencing.
Manipulation techniques also focus on helping aid the realigning of the spine and decompression of the nerves that are compromised by tight muscles and/or connective tissue.
We also use techniques to aid the removal of edema from the areas around nerves to decompress their reduced blood supply so they have better health. Neural flossing techniques can be given as home care as they are designed to stretch and release adhesions between nerve sheaths and adjacent structures.
