Back pain and Sciatica
Naprapaths are highly trained to identify the root cause of back pain, which could be related to poor posture, muscle imbalance, or joint dysfunction.
They use a combination of soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, and corrective exercises to address the underlying issue and reduce pain. Soft tissue manipulation, including techniques like massage and myofascial release, is commonly employed to relieve tension in the muscles and fascia of the back. By manually manipulating these soft tissues, Naprapaths can reduce muscle tightness, improve blood circulation, and promote relaxation.
Naprapathy can also be an effective approach in helping to alleviate sciatica, a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the hips, buttocks, and legs.
One of the primary causes of sciatica is compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve due to conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or muscle imbalances. Naprapaths utilize a combination of techniques to alleviate sciatic nerve compression and reduce pain associated with sciatica.
Joint mobilization techniques are also utilized to address joint dysfunction that may contribute to both back pain and sciatica. These gentle, hands-on techniques aim to restore proper joint alignment, mobility, and function. By correcting any joint restrictions or misalignments, Naprapathy can help alleviate pain and improve overall spinal health.
In addition to these manual techniques, Naprapaths often incorporate corrective exercises into treatment plans for back pain. These exercises are tailored to address muscle imbalances, improve core strength, and promote proper posture and alignment. By strengthening and stretching specific muscles, the body can regain balance and stability, reducing the strain on the back and alleviating pain.
Furthermore, Naprapaths provide guidance on lifestyle modifications and ergonomic adjustments that can support the healing process and prevent future back pain. This may include recommendations for proper lifting techniques, postural improvements, and ergonomic changes in the workplace or home environment.

Headaches and Migranes
Naprapathy can be beneficial in the management of chronic headaches or migraines. Naprapaths are trained to identify the root cause of the problem, which often involves assessing the musculoskeletal system, particularly the neck and shoulders. Many headaches, including tension headaches and migraines, can be triggered or exacerbated by musculoskeletal imbalances and tension in these areas.
Once the underlying issue has been established, Naprapaths employ a variety of techniques to alleviate headache or migraine symptoms. Soft tissue manipulation, such as massage and myofascial release, can help release tension and knots in the muscles of the neck and shoulders. This can lead to immediate relief and reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
Additionally, joint mobilization techniques may be used to restore proper alignment and mobility in the neck and upper back. By addressing any restrictions or misalignments in the joints, Naprapathy aims to relieve pressure on surrounding tissues and improve overall function.
Corrective exercises and stretches are also an integral part of Naprapathic treatment for chronic headaches. These exercises target specific muscles and help strengthen weak areas, improve posture, and enhance flexibility. By addressing muscle imbalances and postural issues, Naprapathy aims to alleviate chronic tension and reduce the likelihood of headaches.
A – Heat Penetration
Heat penetration via hot packs, heating pads, infrared, ultrasound and hydrotherapy resulting in pain relief, and improve localized blood flow. These treatments are generally used on patients with subacute and chronic conditions, to reduce pain, muscle spasms, via relaxing the skeletal muscles and decreased joint stiffness.
Therapeutic heat penetration may not be something you hear about every day, but the reality is that it is one of the most effective methods for relieving pain and creating relaxation in the body. It works by working below the surface of the skin, allowing deep-heated penetration to reach muscles and relax them to ease discomfort.
Therapeutic heat penetration works by incorporating both infrared and thermal energy technologies. This combination allows for greater comfort and deeper treatments than what can typically be achieved with traditional heating methods. Through this process, heat penetrates deeper into the body’s tissues and muscles, providing relief from muscle strain and stiffness.
Heat penetration therapy has been used for centuries and is now a popular alternative to more invasive treatments such as surgery. It also doesn’t require any kind of medication or supplements, making it a safe and all-natural way to relieve pain. In fact, many people report feeling immediate relief after their first session.
Whether you suffer from chronic pain, arthritis, sports injuries, or other ailments, therapeutic heat penetration could help you find much-needed relief. Consult your healthcare provider to discuss if it’s the right choice for your specific needs.
How long do I need to come before I am better?
Most people find relief after the first session. Secondarily, it depends on how long the problem has been going on and the nature of the problem. Most chronic problems that have been going on for many years take longer to correct, whereas acute problems that are newer take less time.
Unlike what you may have experienced with Chiropractors or Physical Therapy Clinics, my goal is to get a person fixed and out the door within the least amount of sessions. We will know better how long it takes based on how the body holds and responds to the first and second therapy sessions.
How much does a treatment cost?
The initial session is approximately 1.5 hours long, which includes patient history and treatment. Initial starting at $200.00 and subsequent sessions are one hour at $180.00.

Neck and shoulder pain
Similar to back pain, neck and shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of factors such as poor posture, muscle strain, or joint dysfunction. Naprapathy offers effective techniques to alleviate neck pain and improve overall musculoskeletal health.
Naprapaths are trained in various approaches to address neck and shoulder pain. They may employ stretching exercises to increase flexibility and relieve muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. These stretches can help improve range of motion and reduce stiffness, alleviating pain and discomfort.
Massage therapy is another common technique used by Naprapaths to relieve neck and shoulder pain. Through targeted manipulation of soft tissues, such as muscles and fascia, massage therapy can promote relaxation, increase blood circulation, and reduce muscle tension. This can provide immediate relief and improve the overall function of the neck and shoulder area.
Furthermore, Naprapaths may use spinal mobilization techniques to restore proper joint function in the neck and upper back. These gentle, hands-on adjustments can help alleviate joint restrictions or misalignments that contribute to pain and limited mobility.
Alongside these techniques, Naprapaths may also provide recommendations for posture correction and ergonomic adjustments to minimize strain on the neck and shoulder area. They may suggest specific exercises or modifications to daily activities to improve posture and prevent future pain and discomfort.
Naprapathy is a manual therapy that can be used to manage and help improve a variety of spinal conditions and related musculoskeletal issues. Naprapaths are trained to identify the underlying causes of spinal pain, which could be related to joint dysfunction, muscle imbalance, or other biomechanical factors. Here are some ways that Naprapathy can help with spinal conditions:
Spinal cord injuries:
Naprapaths can work with patients with spinal cord injuries to address the musculoskeletal issues that can develop over time due to pressure sores, disuse, and muscle atrophy. By promoting proper alignment and mobility of the affected areas, Naprapaths can help to reduce pain and optimize functional movement.
Disc compression can arise from several factors such as posture, muscle imbalances or trauma. Naprapaths can work to reduce compression of the discs by using techniques such as stretching, spinal mobilization, muscle release and posture correction.
Naprapaths can help with the spinal condition scoliosis, which causes a lateral curvature of the spine. While scoliosis has varying degrees of severity , Naprapaths can use techniques such as stretching and manual manipulation to improve mobility, promote proper alignment, and reduce pain.
This inflammatory arthritis of the spine can lead to pain and stiffness in the vertebral column. Naprapaths can work to improve mobility, reduce symptoms, and prevent joint deterioration by using soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, therapeutic exercises and stretches.
By addressing the underlying causes of spinal conditions, Naprapaths can help patients achieve optimal musculoskeletal health and function. Through a combination of soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, corrective exercises and stretches, Naprapaths aim to develop a personalized therapy plan for each patient, seeking to reduce pain and improve spinal alignment.
