Articular Stretching for Neural Mobilization - Freedom From Pain Institute. Epicondylalgia While the humeral and ulnar bones flex and extend similar to a door hinge, the humeral and radial articulations are much more complex.

Articular Stretching for Neural Mobilization - Freedom From Pain Institute

Shaped like a contoured knob with a cup at the end, the elbow’s radial head smoothly rotates around the ulnar bone, causing the radiohumeral and radioulnar joints to efficiently turn the palm up (supination) or down (pronation) (Image 2). Sports—and occupations that involve repetitive lifting, forceful forearm maneuvers, and recurrent vibration—may, in time, damage the elbow’s extensor tendons and degrade the joint’s articular cartilage. In the presence of altered joint mechanics, the brain may decide to layer the area with protective spasm, resulting in radial nerve symptoms that resemble lateral epicondylalgia, or tennis elbow. Famed hand surgeon Emanuel Kaplan, MD, was the first to suspect radial nerve denervation as a possible cause for some epicondylalgia cases.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Revisited - Freedom From Pain Institute

Although most of us have developed hands-on skills for relieving median nerve compression as it passes under the transverse carpal ligament, I believe the treatment can be enhanced (image 1). By adding simple nerve and joint gliding techniques, inflammation, which arises as tendon and nerve sheaths glide across rigid carpal bones, is often reduced. A 2015 study published in The Journal of Pain reported physical manual therapies that included central nervous system desensitization maneuvers were effective in improving CTS pain.1 By restoring proper carpal joint positioning, massage helps lower intra-tunnel pressure and boosts median nerve glide.

Osteopathic Vision. Chapman’s Reflexes Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes “The cause of nerve irritation must be found and removed before the channels can relax and open sufficiently to admit the passage of the obstructed fluids.” – A.T.

Stomach-Sleeper’s Headache. Treating Suboccipitals and Dural Drag by Erik Dalton The obliquus capitis inferior (OCI) muscles may be the most underappreciated of all the suboccipitals.

Low Back Tweak Fast Fixes. The Wobbly Wheel Syndrome. Addressing Joint Misalignment by Erik Dalton A joint’s normal range of motion is defined by the connective tissue that binds it.

The Wobbly Wheel Syndrome

The muscles, tendons and fascia that cross a joint dictate approximately 80% of its stability with less than 20% entrusted to the ligaments. Ideal body balance requires some muscles to act as stabilizers and others to act as mobilizers, depending on joint position and movement required for the particular task. A perfect balance of mobilizers and stabilizers results in optimal alignment, or joint centration.

Think of joint centration like the wheel on a car. How To Relieve Sinus Pressure. When learning how to relieve sinus pressure, these are the main pressure points you will focus on.

Trigger point. The trigger point model states that unexplained pain frequently radiates from these points of local tenderness to broader areas, sometimes distant from the trigger point itself. Practitioners claim to have identified reliable referred pain patterns which associate pain in one location with trigger points elsewhere. There is variation in the methodology for diagnosis of trigger points and a dearth of theory to explain how they arise and why they produce specific patterns of referred pain.[2]
