Health Conditions Helped by Somatics

A partial list of disorders that respond well to Clinical Somatic Education — with some improving or resolving completely in just a few sessions. Explore these topics (in short lists, more detail, or picture grids) to learn more about the science and approach used in addressing a disorder. Contact us to learn more.

Successful Aging

Aging has come to be thought of a disease process in it’s own right. We consider the act of simply living on the planet as it’s own pathogen that results in our decline. While the many processes we think of as aging are obviously complex and not entirely understood, we assume “aging" as default cause almost anytime someone has musculoskeletal problems, aches, pains, or loss of energy and function. This is the nature of a “myth”: A myth is a story that may or not be true, but we accept it as legitimate and use it as an explanation for why certain things are the way they are.

Back Pain

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

Uneven Leg Length

Actual structural leg length discrepancies are very rare.

Most uneven leg length is functional. This means that the muscles of the waist, back,and hip, in conjunction with other muscles, are pulling one leg shorter than the other.

While this can be a part of and a cause of many other functional imbalances, it is most often readily corrected by a client and practitioner working together with very specific neuro-muscular reeducation techniques.

Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the wear and tear and inflammation of joints, especially weight bearing joints. Arthritis is generally viewed as normal degradation due to aging, overuse, and misuse of the body. The question we ask is "does this degradation need to occur, and if it already has, what can be done to reverse it?" The answer is usually "no, it does not need to occur and, if it already has, often there is hope that you can make it better."

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.

Balance Problems

There is a very intricate relationship between the movement of the eyes, the balancing organs of the inner ear, the musculature of the entire skeleton, the proprioceptive sense organs of the body, and the brain centers that equate and manage all of these factors.
