Visceral Manual Treatment

Table of Contents

Visceral manual therapy is a method of examination and treatment that focuses on the anatomical and functional characteristics of the internal organs and surrounding structures, aiming to ensure the integrity between the joint, muscle and spine structures and the internal organs. If a disorder in any of these structures is not corrected, other structures may be negatively affected.

The aim of visceral manual therapy is to find and treat the source of the problem. In this way, solving the problem means that if the problem is pain, the pain disappears and the organs continue to function in a healthy way. Visceral manual therapy is characterized by assessing the body as a whole to identify the source of the problem without focusing on the painful and restricted area. For example, if pelvic organs are the cause of low back or knee pain, treatments are directed to the pelvic organs.

Since this treatment, which is usually applied in 2-3 sessions per week, is holistic and cause-oriented, complaints are less likely to recur.

Where is Visceral Manual Therapy Effective?

Visceral manual therapy is effective on many systems such as musculoskeletal system, nervous system, uro-genital system, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, vascular and lymphatic system. This therapy is used in many diseases such as chronic musculoskeletal diseases, low back pain, hip pain, knee and leg pain, sciatica pain, shoulder pain, swallowing disorders, reflux problems, bladder dysfunction, gynecological diseases and digestive system problems.

How is it done?

During the therapy, the therapist examines specific areas of the body and returns the organs to their natural positions using manual techniques.

During the treatment, the therapist assesses the positions and movements of the organs and uses this information to create a customized treatment plan. The duration and frequency of treatment may vary depending on the individual’s conditions and goals.

During therapy, the individual usually lies in a comfortable position. The patient’s position and movements can be adjusted by the therapist. At the end of the therapy, the individual usually feels better and a complete recovery is aimed by completing the specified sessions.

Since Visceral Manual Therapy does not contain any needles or drugs, it does not have any side effects when applied correctly by experienced and trained people.

In visceral manual therapy, various treatment methods are used, including palpation, cupping, towel, cupping, visceral belly massage and visceral manipulation. One of the most common of these methods is visceral massage. This massage is applied to remove blockages in the body and regulate intercellular fluid processes. Visceral massage involves the application of pressure, cutting movements and vibrations to the abdominal wall. This method can be defined as a massage technique to improve visceral health.
