Visceral manipulation explores the relationship between organs such the uterus, intestines, kidney’s 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 proper function. This is by the connections (fascia) they have to each other and other areas of the body such as the spine and hips. Therefore stiffness is the hips can drive visceral dysfunction and stiff organs can cause hip pain. Both need to be addressed to achieve long lasting pain reduction.
Visceral manipulation can be effective with treatment of:
- Bladder Incontinence
