Fascial Counterstrain Treatment
With DDD many things can contribute to how much pain you feel and how much your function is limited. This can include having healthy and flexible vs. rigid and restricted tendons around the spine, tension in the dural system which surrounds your brain and spinal cord, good blood flow in and out of the spinal cord or restrictions in the tissues of the digestive system that tug on the spine. Fascial Counterstrain cannot reverse the degenerative changes of DDD but it can correct many of these other problems so that the DDD causes a lot less or even no pain at all. Fascial Counterstrain works with restrictions of the fascia (deep connective tissues) that are located in the tissue of all the systems of our body. This includes arteries, veins, nerves, viscera (digestive system, lungs and heart), ligaments, muscles and bones. By correcting the restrictions in the fascia of the dura, tendons, bones, venous system, arterial system and even the viscera Fascial Counterstrain improves the mobility in all the tissues surrounding your spine. This reduces the strain on the spine, decreases your pain and gets you back to the activities you enjoy.
