Neuroplasticity in chronic pain

The osteopathic view of chronic pain as a constitutional disease

Pain is an unpleasant multidimensional phenomenon with a neuronal or physiological component and it is a consequence of diseases or regional structures disorders due to a dysfunction of the nervous system. It results from the activation of harmful receptors and it is called neuropathic pain, when it results from a Central Nervous System (CNS) or Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) dysfunction, or central pain, when it results from a CNS injury.

Case Study

The contribution of Classical Osteopathy in a child with PHDA

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (PHDA) is a neurodevelopmental disorder of high prevalence, constituting the main reason for referral to neurodevelopment or child and adolescent mental health consultations. In the view of osteopathy, authors say that osteopathic treatment of the entire body has positively influences in learning/school problems. Although the mechanism of action is not fully understood, it is found that manual osteopathic treatment calms neurological excitability.

Case Study

Influence of body adjustment in a patient with scoliosis

In an increasingly technological society with easy access to information, there is an increase of musculoskeletal disorders related to poor general habits. Scoliosis can be one of these consequences, as well as many other pathologies. Thus, we seek to ascertain the results of osteopathy by the body adjustment in a patient without previous significant improvements after experiencing other therapeutic approaches.
