WHAT IS NAPRAPTHY / NAPRAPATHIC MEDICINE?

Naprapathic Medicine is a specialized system of health care that employs hands-on manual medicine, as well as nutritional counseling and a wide variety of therapeutic modalities. Naprapathy focuses on conditions caused by contracted, injured, spasmed, bruised, and/or otherwise impaired myofascial and connective tissue. 

Connective tissue supports and contains all of the integral structures of the entire body, including the tissue surrounding the spinal column and spinal cord. It envelopes muscles, organs, joints and all of the articulations of the body. This specialized tissue includes ligaments, tendons, fascia, inter-vertebral discs, and cartilage – all of which can develop pathologic conditions in need of treatment. Naprapaths have a very unique and healthful way to address these problems.

Connective tissue conditions treated with naprapathic care can be characterized by abnormally rigid and/or contracted (strained) ligaments, tendons, and related muscles and fascia in many areas of the body. Conditions may exist where this contracted tissue may impede and create interference with the normal action of nerve pathways in addition to affecting the proper circulation of blood and lymph. This can result in pain, inflammation and restriction of normal movement of the affected area of the body, negatively affecting vessels passing through these tissues. 

Causes of these types of connective tissue problems may arise from traumatic injuries - including car accidents, sports injuries and falls. It is also known to result from repetitive motion syndromes, such as work-related computer or machine use, heavy lifting and improper posture in addition to other lifestyle factors.

Board certified and licensed naprapaths, who are unofficially referred to as neuromyologists, can evaluate and treat patients with a referral from your MD, DO, DC, or DPM. They may also treat a patient based on their own evaluation without a referral but will defer to a physician when a diagnosis has been made. 


HOW IS ONE TREATED USING NAPRAPATHY?

Doctors of naprapathic medicine often use a three-fold strategy in the treatment of connective tissue disorders.
   

  • Naprapathic Manual Medicine: involves hands-on (gentle) connective tissue manipulation to the spine, joints and articulations of the body.
  • Nutritional Counseling: Recommendations for holistic dietary changes, food supplementation (as through the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals) to assist the body in achieving optimal health.
  • Therapeutic Modalities: The use of the effective properties of physical measures of heat, cold, light, water, radiant energy, electricity, sound, air and assistive devices for the purpose of preventing, correcting or alleviating a physical disability. Modalities may include ultrasound, electric stimulation and/or photobiostimulation (also known as low-level laser or cold laser therapy).
