Visceral Manipulation at Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center
Visceral manipulation is a hands-on manual therapy that is used to help your internal organs glide smoothly inside your body. Chiropractors use this treatment to help treat conditions such as cramps, indigestion, abdominal pain, constipation, and various other health-related issues. We provide visceral manipulation here at Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center in Westlake Village for those interested in a non-invasive procedure that will help them back on track to living a healthy life.
How Visceral Manipulation Can Help
Viscera are the soft internal organs of the body. Many internal conditions can be treated using visceral manipulation. Individuals experiencing nervous, vascular, musculoskeletal, digestive, and lymphatic dysfunction are perfect candidates for this procedure. However, results will vary from one patient to the other. Our chiropractors will determine what treatment options are right for you based on our thorough assessment. It typically takes only a few sessions for people to begin noticing results.
How Visceral Manipulation Works
Our chiropractors will perform various tests to determine if there are any restrictions in your abdominal or thoracic viscera that may be playing a role in your pain. During a visceral manipulation session, different adjustments will be performed to help mobilize the tissue, resulting in better functioning within the body. The procedure is a gentle compression that can resemble mild pressure in the abdomen or similar to a stretch. You may feel mild warmth or tingle in the area due to an increase in blood flow.
On the day of your treatment, you will need to make sure that you wear comfortable, loose clothing. You will be asked to stay completely dressed during the treatment or asked to put on a gown. The only area that will be exposed is the area that is being treated. Common areas that are treated with visceral manipulation include the abdomen, pelvis, and rib cage.
Everyone’s experience will be a bit different based on their particular injury and symptoms. However, it is normal to experience reduced pain or discomfort following a treatment session. Our chiropractors will inform you to drink a lot of water following the procedure and to not engage in strenuous activities right away. We also recommend that most patients maintain a few treatment sessions a month until their pain has fully subsided.
