Mystery Pain

Mystery pain is pain that has not been responsive to most approaches and has no apparent reasons for existing based on history, test and other diagnostic methods.

What may contribute to mystery pain?  injuries, scar tissue and adhesions, side effects of surgeries, deep seated stress, PTSD, and emotional and psychological trauma. These can contribute to setting up sustained plains of tense muscles and fascia. Sustained plains of tense muscles, individual muscles, and plains of tense myofascia can contribute to break down of bone tissue, joint, TMJ, spinal column problems, postural and alignment problems, scaring, head aches, and others.  Also muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, and interstitial fluid can get stiff and hard And contribute to nerve pain and muscle pain. Compression of bone tissue and scar tissue can contribute to muscle, nerve, ligament, and tendon pain. Certain forms of toxicity can be contributing to mystery pain. 

Another large contributor to mystery and chronic pain, anxiety, stress, insomnia, constipation, endogenous depression, tinnitus, neuropathy, sciatica,  TMJ disfunction, and others are cranial sacral system tensions, restrictions, and pressures. These often happen as a result of being injured.  Difficult deliveries can also cause cranial sacral restrictions for the mother and baby. Some doctors recommend new mothers and baby’s be checked by a cranial sacral therapist for cranial sacral restrictions and tensions which could show up as mystery pain some time later.

Cranial sacral and integrative manual therapy especially offer assessing techniques for identifying and locating  problems contributing to mystery pain and techniques for helping mystery pain. I get good results in these situations as I have extensive experience and training to do so using Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT), Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST), Myofascial Release (MFR) Therapy and Strain-Counter-Strain. These particular manual therapies work synergistically which contributes to me getting good results. 

Therapies I practice are considered to be forms of homeopathy.  They could be thought of as manual homeopathy, meaning they raise the bodies awareness of what’s causing it pain and disfunction. This heightened bodily self awareness can enable the body to move into self correction and healing activities.
