Disc Problems : Herniated, Bulging, Protruding, Swollen

Very often when a doctor or other health professional looks at an MRI or X-ray of a spine, they see a bulging, herniated or damaged disc and equate that with the cause of the pain. While we are in no way disregarding the idea that disc damage can cause pain and disfunction, the fact is that many people live perfectly healthy and pain free lives with damaged discs.

Breathlessess / Shortness of Breath

Chronically contracted muscles of the abdomen, chest, back, and waist can easily restrict the inhalation and exhalation of breath. There is a complicated and beautifully orchestrated pattern of muscular coordination between the diaphragm, the abdominal muscles, the chest, neck, and shoulder muscles, the muscles between the ribs, as well as the back and waist muscles that must occur in order to enable deep and easy breathing.

Insomnia

For information regarding Somatics and this condition, please contact the Somatic Systems Institute. Thank you.

Hamstring Pulls and Tension

The hamstrings are a very mysterious place for most people, not an area where we have a huge amount of sensation or proprioception. Hamstring tension, tears and pulls are very common, especially in athletes.

Impotence

Hemroids

For information regarding Somatics and this condition, please contact the Somatic Systems Institute. Thank you.

Bursitis

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, the fluid filled sacks that cushion points of contact between tendons, ligaments, and bones. Especially prevalent in the shoulder and knee joints, bursitis can cause pain upon movement, heat, swelling, and limited mobility. The term is often used as a general description for shoulder pain where the cause is unclear and is generally thought to occur from misuse.
