How I treat pain
The main pain treatment method I use is ‘LNB Pain Therapy’, which was developed in Germany and is becoming increasingly popular in German speaking countries. The method is a purely manual, non invasive treatment. It’s based on a new understanding of pain, which is comprehensible and finds a solid support from the latest research on ‘fascia’. Fascia is the tissue that surrounds each muscle fibre and the muscle as a whole. It gains ever greater scientific attention as its importance for pain development is recognised.
I have learnt that over 90% of all pains people suffer from are related to the fascia and therefore can be treated with ‘LNB Pain Therapy’.
In the course of treatment I press ‘osteo-pressure points’, that is pressure points on the bone. The pressure stimulates nerve endings that have a direct connection to the brain, which immediately relaxes the muscle tone and, consequently, the pain.
After the treatment I give patients ‘homework’ to do, which consists of so called constriction point stretches. These exercises are crucial for maintaining the success of the treatment. They are specifically designed to keep the pain away and further develop the flexibility of joints soft tissue and muscles. With those tools in hand the patient can stay free from pain in the long term.
If the situation requires it, I might also decide to use acupuncture treatment. For that I use European ear acupuncture.
Other important issues I discuss with my patients are diet, micronutrients and lifestyle. They are highly relevant factors in the genesis and treatment of pain and the main foundation for good health.
