Low Back pain Relief – INT Massage

Restoring proper structure and biomechanics not only alleviates pain, but can positively affect a variety of physiological conditions. One of the neurological laws that is the basis for Integrative Neurosomatic Therapy is Wolff’s law. Simply stated, Wolff’s law states “form follows function and function follows form.” Thus, a distortion in the form of the body is often correlated to improper function of the body. For example, a slouching posture can decrease digestive function or a trigger point into the ear can affect hearing or balance. When proper structure is restored to the body, the accompanying physiological problems are often alleviated.

INT gets right to the source of most lower back pain.

Leg Pain Relief

Leg Pain Relief – Relieve Leg Pain with INT Massage.

Disc Herniations

If you’ve ever experienced a disc herniation you know how painful they are!

What causes herniations? More importantly what can be done to eleviate the pain!?

Simply put discs are the shock obsorbers of the spine & they are designed to last a life time. So then what causes the problem? There can be several different possiblities or a combination of possibilities, for example, just like with our automobile’s shocks, they are only designed to carry a certain amount of weight. If you are carrying more weight than you should be, that will be a contributing factor. Other factors could & often do include postural imbalances such as to mcuh flexion or extention of the pelvis which is caused by an inbalance of the muscles. Another cause can be a leg length difference.

According to DR. Janet Travell, who was chosen by two different Presidents of the United States as their personal physician, if you have as little as 3mm-5mm (about a 1/4 of an inch) in leg length difference, it can contribute to back problems, including herniations. In an effort to correct that imbalance, Chiropractors will often try to “adjust it out” or give you a “Heal Lift” to put inside your shoe. In our experience neither of those options prove effective & very often cause more problems than they “cure”. What we have found to be very effective is adding a full length lift in the shoe (or to the shoe if it won’t fit inside the shoe) & then using INT (Integrative Neurosomatice Therapy) to help the muscles repattern back to a resting length. As this occurs the disc is decompressed & the herniation is often eliminated. No More Pain!
