All of us, not matter what age or health status, have some amount of restriction in our nervous system. This restriction will cause pain in the skin and perhaps other areas. Those of us with more health problems, by definition, have more of an issue in our nervous system. That is part of the cascade that leads us to poor health.
To keep the anatomy simple, all nerves originate from the brain or the spinal cord. They travel along a pathway that allows them to connect to organs, muscles, blood vessels, etc. and finally wind up at the skin and what is called peripheral nerve. John Hilton, who was an English surgeon, found that ANY irritation along a nerve path affected EVERYTHING along the path and caused the skin that the nerve goes to become sensitive. It is called Hilton’s Law.
Still keeping it simple, that means that if you can take the end of a ball point pen, press into the skin with its end, and find even one sore spot ANYWHERE on your skin, then you have an irritation somewhere inside as well. These sore spots are there long before you have any disease. They are there before your diabetes, your acid reflux, your endometriosis, your chronic migraines, etc.
If found early enough, all of these conditions can be treated (perhaps to the point of resolution) by releasing the nerve. Treating the nerve (either through effective trigger point injections, manual treatment of the peripheral nerve, myofascial release, neural prolo therapy, acupuncture or other manual treatments) will help to release the entire nerve and thus help all of the things that connect to it. In this way you can halt the progression of, and perhaps reverse, chronic disease.
So it is very important to have a practitioner that is skilled in this area as part of your healthcare team, AND it is important for you as the patient to make certain that your doctor and your practitioner (if they are different) not only know your complaints, but make sure they are checked from the aspect of the peripheral nerves.
I have had many patients show significant improvement after getting the peripheral nerves treated. Their pain diminishes (and after a few treatments does not return) and their health continues to improve.
