Linking Visceral, Neural and Articular Dysfunctions
The manual techniques developed by French Osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral recreate, harmonize and increase proprioceptive communication in the body to enhance its internal mechanism for better health throughout all of the bodily systems.
As you explore the world of articular dysfunctions, you will discover a definite link between the somatic structures of the joint to the nervous system and the visceral system. Within the nervous system, the proprioceptors drive our movement without thought. In fact, they are designed as our 6th sense. Within the visceral system, the organs and their attachments can influence the pressure, load, joint orientation, as well as range and rate of movement of musculoskeletal articulations. Joints have a dynamic sensitivity to changing tensions in the body. Learn how the interconnectiveness of visceral, neural and articular dysfunctions affect the whole body.
