Neural Manipulation

At Inspire PT our team of board-certified orthopedic specialists, are also trained in Neural Manipulation. Neural Manipulation focuses on the relationships between the bones of the nervous system (skull, spine) and the soft tissues (nerves, spinal cord, and dura). This technique identifies and releases local restrictions in nerves, enabling them to move freely in their surroundings, which can have positive effects throughout the entire body.

What does it feel like?

Neural Manipulation is a soft, hands-on manual therapy that identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these restrictions have on the rest of the body. Neural manipulation considers that the initial source of dysfunction can be far from where the pain is felt. Because of this, the practitioner searches for this pattern and the source, and then treats the related tissues. The treatment consists of gentle engagement, mobilization, and elongation of the soft tissue, most specifically the nerves. As the source of the problem is released, the symptoms will start to decrease. Reaction and response time may vary with each treatment.
