The Chronicle Getting You Back on Track
THE THERAPEUTIC VALUE OF NEURAL MANIPULATION
French osteopath Alain Croibier collaborated with Jean-Pierre Barral to develop the technique of Neural Manipulation. The courses are based on clinical techniques personally developed by Jean-Pierre Barral combined with Alain Croibier’s scientific information. Comparative studies found Neural Manipulation beneficial for various disorders such as: • Lower back pain & sciatica
the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns. Manual therapy, as it applies to the treatment of nerves, follows the standard principles of mobility and function. For optimal function nerves must be able to move freely within its surroundings. This freedom of movement is essential for: • Nerve conduction • Intraneural blood supply • Local and systemic responsiveness Neural Fixation When a nerve is fixed, it typically loses its ability to glide and/or stretch in length. With fixation, smaller nerve sections can harden. They feel like buds and are very sensitive or painful to the touch. Such “nerve buds” are an indication of an intraneural interference, an overload of physiological pressure points, or a local fibrosis. Nerve buds can be released very quickly, sometimes within one therapy session. Palpation of the skin branches of peripheral nerves can be useful for evaluative, as well for therapeutic considerations. When evaluating the skin branches, if they are sensitive or painful to pressure, typically there is a fixation of the deeper nerve branches.
• Headaches & migraines • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Joint pain • Digestive disorders • Post-operative Scar Tissue Pain • And more
Neural Manipulation examines mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame to the dura and neural elements. It provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions and examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body, and by accessing this relationship, resolves
