  • INDIRECT TECHNIQUES

    Open or Close

    Indirect techniques, are also used to increase range of motion.


    • However, instead of manipulating your joints around restrictive positions. David your osteopath, can also move your body into the most comfortable position possible, to release tissues.

    • Once you are in this position, he will then be able to introduce releases into the muscles.

    This improves:



    Localised muscle/joint pains impact significantly on chronic pain suffered. Their systematic identification & treatment, are recommended in fibromyalgia.

  • SOFT TISSUE MANIPULATION

    Open or Close

    Soft tissue manipulation, involves palpating the muscles, tendons, ligaments & fascia underneath your skin.


    • During soft tissue manipulation, your osteopath will use his hands to repair damaged muscles & tissues.

    • He may stretch your muscles, or use deep pressure massage, in order to relieve stress & pressure.

    Soft tissue manipulation helps:


    • improve muscle dexterity

    • relieve stiffness

    • increase range of motion

  • TRIGGER POINTS

    Open or Close

    Myofascial pain, refers to soft tissue pain usually arising from fibromyalgia, trauma, repetitive activities, & chronic pain or poor posture.


    Myofascial trigger points (MTrP) are a hyper- irritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band.


    Myofascial trigger points, can be inactivated by osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), together with the other methods in Osteopathic Care, as well as needling, (acupuncture).


    It is usually associated with muscle spasm & is most often seen in the region, of the neck.


    Patients may complain of neck pain, pain across the top of the shoulders, sleep difficulties & occasionally, headaches.


    • Distressed tissues tend to involve a major degree of ischemia – inadequate blood & oxygen supply. [1]

    • Such tissues are a natural breeding ground for myofascial trigger points which are a major feature in all chronic & much acute, musculoskeletal pain. [2]

    • While it is well-known that trigger points can produce pain, it is a less appreciated fact that trigger points also alter the function of the tissues to which they refer [3]

    • flexibility

    • increased range of motion

    • bone strength

    • reduction of pain

    • particularly sleepy or tired

    • unusually relaxed

    • sore in the manipulated areas

    • Any lingering sensation, should disappear within a day or so.

  • DIAGNOSIS

    Open or Close

    Confusion in Diagnosing Fibromyalgia/FMS & other Chronic Pain Syndromes


    Current research indicates that FMS is not primarily a musculoskeletal problem, although the muscles & joints are where the major symptoms are experienced.


    Because there are no clear laboratory procedures that can identify FMS & because the condition is associated with a cluster of variable symptoms, diagnosis remains a problem.


    A number of complex conditions exist that have symptom patterns similar to those observed in FMS, in particular:


    Changed perception of pain;


    Abnormal sleep patterns;


    Reduced brain serotonin;


    Abnormalities of microcirculation & energy metabolism in muscle.


    Because there are many similarities within MPS, FMS, CFS, MCS & PTSD, the accepted diagnosis for each patient may be confusing & sometimes inaccurate. Many with these conditions can have several overlapping diagnosis for example CFS & FMS.


    CHRONIC MYOFASCIAL PAIN SYNDROME (MPS).

    This involves multiple active myofascial trigger points. Much of the pain experienced by people with FMS may derive from trigger points.

    CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME (CFS).

    The symptoms of CFS are almost all those usually present in FMS. With greater emphasis on the fatigue elements, rather than the painful ones.


    MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY (MCS).

    Allergy or sensitivity to chemicals or foods is the main component of this disorder. The symptoms are likely to fluctuate, suggesting that the condition is not mainly systemic, but results from environmental factors.


    POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD).

    The history of the patient will commonly contain evidence of violent traumatic, physical or emotional experiences that suggest PTSD as a contributory feature.


    David incorporates diagnostic & therapeutic strategies. These address body unity, homeostatic mechanisms & structure-function interrelationships.

Nearly always people can be helped, by carefully prescribed GENTLE, Osteopathic treatment & advice.
