Definition Of Visceral Manipulation
Definition Of Visceral ManipulationWhat Is It?
It is estimated that 80-90% of neuromuscular pain and dysfunction has its origins in the viscera- the organs that inhabit your thorax, abdomen and pelvis. All the forms of your connective tissue- ligaments, tendons and fascia- are part of a continuous three dimensional web in your body. Collectively these tissues maintain spatial relationships among everything else in the body through their tensegrity. Because of the continuous nature of these tissues, no distortion from trauma can stay local, and any intervention, such as surgery, changes things all along the web.

Thus, trauma to the stomach or the connective tissues around the lung can create neck pain that won’t go away with massage. Dysfunction of the liver can create acne, asthma, sciatica, incontinence, or pain in the right shoulder, simply because of these lines of lesion- like a snag in a sweater spreading across the whole fabric of the sweater.
