Neurological Model for Visceral Dysfunction Causes viscerosomatic Reflex. Respiratory afferent inflammatory response, you want to decrease the incoming impulses to decrease somatic muscle spasm (decrease doughy tissue texture).
Doughy tissue texture Due to lymphatics. Suggestive of a Viscerosomatic reflex as opposed to true somatic pain (seen with strictly muscle spasm) **also if it is persistant after treatmetn, viscerosomatic
Rib raising stretches the fascia, causing pressure on sympatheic chain ganglia. Causing inhibition and correcting the viscerosomatic reflex.
Chapman's points good diagnostically and treated posteriorly (10 second rotary pressure).
Treatment of sympathetic component of thoracic visceral disease Just like with chapman's, 10 sec rotatory on chapman's point
Adbominal plexus inhibition Treating sympathetic component of bowel dysfunction. push into the celiac/superior mes/inferior mes plexus. Hold until tissue releases (10-20sec)
Treatment of Parasympathetic component of visceral disease Suboccipital release (Vagus nerve goes all the way down to half of Large intestine). OR Sacral Rocking for everything below via S2-4 (pelvic splanchnic)
Respiratory-Circulatory Model Lymphatic drainage. **Always treat thoracic inlet FIRST because it is most important in fluid drainage
Lymphatic treatments 1.Myofascial release of fascial diaphragms 2.Lymphatic pumps 3.Organ pumps (depends on conditions)
Visceral techniques for visceral disease 1.Mesenteric lifts (passively shortening mesentery to reduce tension and normalize autonomics and drainage). **Always start with descending colon FIRST then Ascending (both lifted towards umbilicus)
Abdominal Sphincter release Indications: motility dysfunction. **All sphincters usually rotate in the SAME direction (clockwise). Treat with direct or indirect myofascial release on 4 main GI sphincters.
