Nerve Mobilization Massage, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Ca

Nerve Mobilization Massage, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Ca

Therapists use a variety of movements to assess for sites of irritation. Sometimes patients may test negative, but this does still not rule out nerve irritation, in these cases, a more refined assessment along the entire path of the involved nerve may be needed. Precision Neural Mobilization is an approach to identifying and treating various mechanical disorders of the nervous system.

When a compression or entrapment occurs, whether acute or chronic, edema and fibrosis are two of the most common consequences.

When nerves are exposed to fibrosis they lose their necessary capacity and capabilities to slide, bend and move around and through the various bodily tissues in which they traverse.

When a nerve loses this ability to move, it becomes subject to the further insult of compression and traction during normal everyday movement.

When this happens, these are precisely the people that come to our office requesting our help.
