IWG's Approach to
Neurological

“It has helped me really heal and move past negative stress. I feel like myself again”

Hear from one of our patients

The patient had chronic jaw pain that she described as having experienced “her entire life.” This increased after a blunt force trauma to the face several years ago. She states that the jaw pain occurs on a daily basis, “clicks and pops,” clenches at night, chews food on only one side, and will frequently hold her head in her hand to relieve pressure from the jaw. She also reports that this can present with a migraine type headache once every 2 to 3 weeks, and does not get restful sleep. Her daily stress from work also contributes to an overall feeling of not being at 100%, which affects her mood

IWG’s custom approach

A one hour Craniosacral therapy visit was completed one time a week for 4 weeks. Specific calming essential oils were used aromatically as well as music with neurologic calming frequencies were incorporated each visit. The first few visits focused on balancing the body and CSF in general, then following treatments included internal mouth work on the palate and jaw. After three visits, her daily jaw pain had decreased by more than half, was rarely clenching, and headaches were gone. After the sixth treatment, she noted a vast improvement in mood, energy, sleep, and general outlook on life. Her jaw pain was gone, and neurologic re-testing showed an 80% improvement in balance and inner ear function.

What we found to be the root cause

Upon examination, it was found that there was a decrease in the rate and quality of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) primarily on the left side of her body. The slow and “thready” quality of the CSF was indicative of a chronic issue. It was noted that there was trauma/injury/lesion in the soft tissue in the head and face, primarily on the left as well. Her left parietal bone, sphenoid bone, temporal bone, and TMJ were all fixated, which was not allowing for proper cerebrospinal fluid flow in these areas. This was affecting her range of motion in the jaw and neck. She also presented with postural compensations in the neck such as forward head posture, a raised left shoulder, and a tilt to the right. Neurologic tests also showed a decrease in the left cerebellum, and dysfunction in balance when testing her inner ear canals.

FUN FACT:

An Integrated Emotional Release session with Dr. Nick Carruthers was added to further allow negative emotions that were contributing to jaw pain and mood swings.

Integrative Medicine is the Evolution of Medicine

Let’s be honest, Medicine needs a face lift.  Our goal at IWG is to evolve medicine to be comprehensive, specific, and integrative.  It starts with looking at the whole person and the whole picture.  The measuring of someones physical stress, internal (biochemical) stress, their emotional and energetic stress allows you to provide the proper diagnosis and the most tailored approach to their health care.  The understanding of the integration of our mental state, our physical symptoms, and our internal environment allows for true and sustainable healing.
