What is Neural Manipulation?

The nervous system is an amazing but poorly understood system by most practitioners and even nerve specialists. You cannot treat the nervous system in isolation from all of its connections in the body. Through training and experience Focus Physio are leaders in beginning to understand and correctly treat the nervous system. The results are profound and dramatic.

Neural Manipulation examines mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame to the dura and neural elements. It provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body, and by accessing this relationship, resolves the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.


A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move freely within its surrounding structures. The modality of Neural Manipulation facilitates nerve conductivity and intramural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness. By understanding the detailed anatomy of neural manipulation, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted.


Manual therapy, as it applies to the treatment of nerves, follows the standard principles of mobility and function. For optimal function, nerves must be able to move freely within their surroundings. This freedom of movement is essential for:





Neural manipulation helps many things in the body.  Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this amazing direct:
