Neuromanipulation Q&A

What is neural manipulation?

Neural manipulation at Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy uses manual manipulation to ease discomfort and  pain.

Your Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy provider will identify and treat nerve fixations that can cause sensitivity and pain throughout the body. 

Nerves function correctly when they can move freely within the surrounding tissues. A nerve can become “fixed,” or adhere, to local tissues from physical trauma, surgeries, or a sedentary lifestyle. 

What are the benefits of neural manipulation?

The benefits of choosing neural manipulation at Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy include reduced nerve pain, improved musculoskeletal functioning, improved blood flow, and a better quality of life.

Am I a candidate for neural manipulation?

To determine if you’re a candidate for neural manipulation, the Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy team discusses your symptoms and medical history. They complete a physical and neurological exam, nerve testing, or other diagnostic tests before tailoring your treatment plan.

Neural manipulation may not be for you if you have the following: intracranial hypertension, severe arterial hypertension, the aftereffects of intracranial hemorrhage, severe diabetes, and intracranial aneurysm. What happens during neural manipulation?

During neural manipulation at Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy, you rest comfortably while a provider uses gentle manual therapy. 

They might use their hands, devices, needles, or other holistic solutions to identify the source of your pain and movement dysfunction. Each treatment could last 30-60 minutes, depending on your specific condition and goals. Afterward, you can resume your typical daily routine.
