Client Educational Video # 1
Ischemia & Pain

“Ischemia” literally means lack of blood. When a person has pain in the soft tissues of the body (i.e., muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) whether due to an injury or of unknown origin, these tissues will be ischemic. Paul St. John discusses the role that ischemia plays in causing pain in the body and how, through neuromuscular massage, ischemia can be alleviated. (RT 18:00)

Postural Distortion

Postural distortion is an imbalance in the muscular system that results in distorted positions and faulty movement patterns. Postural distortion and dysfunctional biomechanics can be the result of an injury or of unknown origin. Paul St. John discusses posture and biomechanics and how, through neuromuscular massage, distortions in posture and movement can be eliminated. (RT 38:15)

Trigger Points

Trigger points are highly irritated areas in the soft tissues of the body (i.e., muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) that cause sensations such as pain or numbness to be “referred” to other parts of the body. Paul St. John discusses trigger points and how, through neuromuscular massage, this common occurrence can be eliminated along with the pain they cause. (RT 13:25)

Nerve Entrapment

Nerve entrapment is the pressure brought upon on a nerve fiber by increased states of tightness in the soft tissues of the body (i.e., muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia). As the tightness of the soft tissues increases, more and more pressure is brought to bear on the nerve, resulting in a strangulation or entrapment of the nerve against a bone or cartilaginous structure. Paul St. John discusses how nerve entrapment and compression causes pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, it can be alleviated. (RT 22:00)

Stages of Rehabilitation

When rehabilitating a pain pattern, whether due to an injury or of unknown origin, it is important to follow certain stages of treatment to ensure a full recovery. To work through each of these stages, an interdisciplinary approach is often employed. Dr. Langness, an exercise physiologist and Certified Neuromuscular Therapist, discusses proper stages to follow during such a rehabilitation program. By completing each of these stages in the proper order, healing of pain patterns is quick and long lasting. (RT 13:45)

Pfluger's Law

Pfluger’s Laws explain the transition from acute pain into chronic, unceasing pain. There are changes that occur in our nervous system as it becomes more and more excited due to pain conditions in the soft tissues of the body. Paul St. John discusses each of Pfluger’s laws and how, through neuromuscular massage, a person can reverse this transition to a healthy and pain-free life. (RT 26:00)

Low Back Pain

Low back pain inhibits activity in the home, the workplace and recreational environment and affects all people from the young to the elderly. The key to alleviating low back pain is to determine and understand the actual cause of the pain. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of low back pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 28:20)

Client Educational Video # 8
Whiplash

Whiplash injuries leave the soft tissues of the neck (i.e., muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) in a tight, spasmodic state. This causes misalignment of the vertebrae, increases pressure in the joints, and causes referred pain in the head, neck, shoulders and back. Over time, neck pain of unknown origin can be as devastating as a whiplash injury in causing discomfort and dysfunction. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of neck pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these can be alleviated. (RT 15:45)

Client Educational Video # 9
Hip Pain

Hip pain is due to increased pressure in the hip joint, which causes the hip socket to deteriorate over time, becoming painful and less mobile. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of this increased pressure and hip pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these causes can be eliminated, thereby alleviating the pain. (RT 24:15)

Client Educational Video # 10
Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is one of the most complex joints of the body because so many muscles, tendons, and ligaments insert over the joint capsule. Unraveling the cause of shoulder pain requires very precise palpation and examination of the numerous structures that cause pressure in the joint. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of shoulder pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these can be alleviated. (RT 18:00)

Client Educational Video # 11
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Fascia is a connective tissue that lies just below the skin and surrounds the muscle. Tightness in this tissue may cause entrapment of nerve fibers and pain in the forearm and wrist. Tightness of the muscles of the forearm can cause the nerves that pass through muscles to become constricted or entrapped, thus causing pain. This nerve compression can contribute to CTS. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of carpal tunnel pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 27:05)

Client Educational Video # 12
Knee Pain

There are many causes of knee pain like direct trauma to the knee, or a postural distortion that over time causes imbalances and pain in the knee. Tightening of the quadriceps and adductor muscles of the leg can also stress the kneecap, causing disorders when the knee is bent. Collapsing of the feet will also create a torsion or twisting of the knee and is one of the main reasons for the breakdown of the connective tissue around the knee joint. Paul St. John discusses many of the soft tissue disorders that cause knee pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these can be alleviated. (RT 30:00)

Headaches

Releasing the muscles of the neck and shoulders is essential when evaluating musculoskeletal tension and trigger point involvement as a cause of headaches. The treatment of the muscles at the base of the skull will ensure correct positioning of the vertebrae and eliminate compression on the nerves coming from the base of the skull that may be the cause of headaches. Paul St. John discusses the causes of headaches due to soft tissue dysfunction and structural imbalance and how, through neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 19:40)

Foot Pain

Imbalances in the pelvis must be identified and addressed as they can cause distance in the feet that will lead to pain and dysfunctional movement patterns. Such imbalances can cause an internal rotation of the thigh, which also causes rotation of the knee joint and often leads to collapsed arches in the feet. Whether the dysfunction began with the pelvis or the feet, a whole body therapy program must be administered. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of foot pain and how, through neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 23:00)

When Children Have Pain

Falls and tumbles are frequent facts of childhood but rarely result in soft tissue traumas that are noticed or addressed. Infants should be examined for leg length deviations and distortions in their pelvis, which if present could lead to further distortions as they grow older. If proper posture is maintained through skilled soft tissue treatment while the child is developing then the child can be assured a much healthier adulthood. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of pain that children have and how, through therapeutic neuromuscular treatments, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 27:15)

Pregnancy

Imbalances in the pelvis are a common cause of tightness in the muscles of the back during pregnancy. Tightness in the muscles of the back often leads to low back pain during the birthing process. Pelvic distortions may lead to leg length differences, which will lead to further back pain and biomechanical dysfunctions. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of pain during pregnancy and childbirth and how, through therapeutic neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 16:50)

TMJ Dysfunction

The medical and dental literature is supportive of the fact that tightness in the muscles of the jaw, which is often caused by postural distortion, is the primary identifiable cause of most TMJ pain. By addressing the postural component of TMJ dysfunction, long-term stabilization of the joint can be assured. By restoring normal function to muscles of the jaw, as well as muscles of the neck and shoulder, which may have trigger points that refer pain to the jaw, much of the discomfort may be alleviated. Paul St. John discusses many of the causes of TMJ pain and how, through therapeutic neuromuscular massage, these causes can be alleviated. (RT 33:00)

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a whole body phenomenon. A scoliotic pattern can begin because of a collapsed foot arch, an improper occlusion of the teeth, or a muscular injury. The roles that misalignment, pelvic distortions and the erector spinae muscle play in forming scoliotic patterns are also discussed. We will explain the righting reflex, which explains why the body distorts the spine when there is a postural distortion in the body. Through neuromuscular analysis and treatment, we will also address the soft tissue components to scoliosis to eliminate the cause and effect of the scoliosis. (RT 43:00)

Sciatica

The causes of sciatica vary from herniated disc to entrapment of the sciatic nerve by the piriformis muscle. This program teaches the viewer the role muscles play in distorting postural patterns, the pelvis, and the spinal column and how these distortions create physical forces that inflame and irritate the sciatic nerve. The type of soft tissue treatment necessary to relieve this extremely painful condition is also discussed.(RT 19:00)
