Visceral Adjustment

This is all about referred pain. Only 10% of the nervous system carries pain signals. 70% of nerves go to organs and 20% go to muscles, and the organs and muscles may refer their pain to elsewhere in the body. For example, a heart attack can give you left-sided neck, jaw, chest and arm pain.Read more…

We’ve had patients with stiff necks which aren’t responding to treatment. What has happened is that the stomach is jammed up under the diaphragm, affecting the breathing and in turn tightening the oesophagus, thus causing a stiff neck.

In these cases Dr Andrew has worked on the stomach and stretched the oesophagus by bending the neck. Patients have immediately felt far greater movement in the neck, even though he hasn’t adjusted it. Pain referral patterns like this exist throughout the human structure.

Soft Tissue Work

In Dr Andrew‘s experience, there are 12-14 muscles in the body which cause the most problems. Dr Andrew knows how to target those problem muscles which can cause everything from headaches, shoulder problems, knee pain to back pain. He can get dramatic results in a few minutes by manipulating the muscles. “It’s quite surprising the difference that it makes.”

We can help you by using a variety of safe and gentle techniques. Call (07) 3386 0856 today to find out more.
