Visceral therapy

Manual therapy of the internal organs of the abdominal cavity aiming at restoring their correct tension, flexibility and mobility. Working through the system of internal organs, which has numerous anatomical and functional connections with other structures in the human body, allows for effective assessment and elimination of various disorders of the patient.

Problems with internal organ function can affect problems with the attachments of that organ, which again can cause pain and increase defensive muscle tension. This tension can also generate pain and affect joint problems. This chain of cause and effect can also work in the other direction, leading to an unresolved joint problem becoming the cause of a problem with the functioning of, for example, the stomach.

It is extremely important to be able to assess the impact of visceral problems on the biomechanics of the spine and peripheral joints. Therapists' experience shows that most chronic pain problems, which have their manifestation in joint and fascial mobility disorders, have many links to internal organs. Recognising and treating problems of internal organs becomes crucial for a broader understanding of the patient's pain problems and for achieving long-term treatment results.

The therapy is effective against gastrointestinal problems such as irritable bowel syndrome and gastric neuroses. The therapy helps patients struggling with urinary and faecal incontinence, constipation, painful menstruation, breathing problems (working on the diaphragm), liver pain (in people who run, the therapy can eliminate liver colic), etc. The therapy also helps to remove adhesions after operations.
