What Is Visceral Manipulation?
Visceral manipulation is often a missing piece to the connective tissue puzzle to treating and eliminate the musculoskeletal system’s common painful ailments. Dr. Justin Dean in Los Angeles is a specialized clinic that offers visceral massage to address common complaints such as heartburn, back pain, sciatica, and much more.

How can Visceral Manipulation Help me?
Visceral manipulation explores the relationship between organs such as the uterus, intestines, kidneys and how they connect to structures such as ligaments, tendons, fascia, and joints of the spine, hips, ribs, and shoulders.
Joints and fascia have a normal range of motion (mobility) needed to maintain optimum function. Organs housed inside the abdominal cavity also have to have proper mobility to maintain an appropriate position. These fascial connections link the organs to other body areas, such as the spine and hips. Therefore stiffness in the hips can drive visceral dysfunction, and stiff organs can cause hip pain. Both need treatments to achieve long-lasting pain reduction.
Visceral manipulation can be effective with the treatment of:
- Bladder Incontinence
- Chronic Pelvic Pain
- Joint pain in hips, knees, shoulders, and spine.
- Anxiety and Depression (via diaphragmatic work)
- Acid Reflux and GERD
- Meralgia Paresthetica
- Chronic back pain
- Abdominal scar tissue
Dean’s Sports Therapy has been trained in Visceral Manipulation using french based osteopathic medicine to address stiffness in the fascia of the organs. He combines this with Italian Stecco Fascial Manipulation to achieve optimal results. FM has demonstrated on ultrasound to make a permanent and long-lasting difference in scar tissue reduction and fascia mobility!
