Neural mobilization can restore proper pain-free mobility to the nerves in the arms and legs. Injured nerves, such as with sciatica, often swell with fluid retention which increases their internal pressure. This limits blood flow to the nerve, causing numbing, tingling, pain and weakness.
With neural mobilization, our Doctor guides the patient’s arms or legs in a variety of very specific movement patterns to allow the nerve to glide more freely. By using specific traction techniques; fluid can be removed from the nerve and healing initiated. Often aches and pains that have been present for years will respond well to neural mobilization.
