Visceral Manipulation(SM) techniques
consist of manual forces that encourage normal mobility
and motion of the viscera and their related connective
tissues. It is noninvasive, varies from patient
to patient, depending upon the extent of dysfunction
and creates harmony and health within the body.
This technique works with a variety of pain syndromes
that do not respond to conventional physical therapy
Following trauma, whether it be emotional or physical,
there are changes in the connective tissue that
affect the various organs in the body. The pulls
of the connective tissue affect pressure above and
below the diaphragm in the thoracic cavity and abdominal
and pelvic regions.
Dysfunction irritates organ systems and creates
imbalance between organs, their connective tissue
and related bony structures. The result is chronic
irritation within the body.
