The following are case reports of a few of my fertility clients. Keep in mind this is not a controlled scientific study, it’s just a record of treatments and outcomes. It would be impossible for me to do a valid controlled study. I never use the same treatment for everyone. I treat the person, not the condition.READ MORE
Manual Thermal Evaluation (MTE) is an evaluation technique I learned in a Functional Methods training and in the Visceral Manipulation™ (VM-5) course (both based on osteopathic evaluations and techniques). I use MTE with every single client, so I thought I’d take a brief moment to tell you what I’m doing during MTE. It is much more complex than what I’m presenting here, but it’s important to give you a general overview, so you don’t think I’m doing voodoo.READ MORE
The uterus must be mobile for proper physiological function. When the uterus is fixed in one position fibrosis of the ligaments can result and impair local circulation. When circulation is impaired, the cells won’t get proper nutrients (oxygen), and acidity, pain, and cell death will follow. There are 3 main types of movements the uterus exhibits (that I know of). Mobility, motility and contractions. I’ll briefly cover them below.READ MORE
Abdominal Adhesions are fibrous tissues that can form between abdominal tissues and organs. When adhesions are present the tissues no longer glide and the internal organ’s motility is inhibited, organ function may be affected, pain may result. Manual abdominal therapy can help mobilize tissues and increase internal organ motility.READ MORE
Sciatica refers to pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and originates at the lumbosacral plexus at L4-S3 and has branches all the way down into the foot.
When most people think about sciatica they think of compression from the L4-L5/S1 or piriformis tension.
A common test for sciatic nerve pain resulting from lumbar disc compression is the Lasegue test. The patient lies supine (on their back) with legs straight and the practitioner passively (without help from the patient) lifts the leg. If lifting..READ MORE
