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 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 in 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 the treatment of:
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!
