Deep stabilization of muscles (proprioception training) allows you to use active (muscle) structures that protect the spine from overloads and microinjuries that add upon each other and lead directly to back pain and spine-related pain.
Improvement of deep and superficial sensibility in the spine region increases the pain threshold associated with functional disorders of paraspinal tissues.

By training and learning how to use the body correctly you can reduce the risk of back pain recurrence.

Myofascial mobilization (release):

Techniques of rhythmic contracting and relaxing of soft tissues connected to the segment or segments of the spine affected by a neurosurgical procedure:

Scar therapy after neurosurgical treatment makes fascia, muscles and ligaments more flexible, improves tissue mobility and reduces excitability of nerve endings.

Rehabilitation supplemented by osteopathic techniques

The main goal of preoperative therapy is to improve disturbed local tissue mobility. The most important elements of treatment are:

  • Normalisation of joint mobility, i.e. improving joint play and releasing local movement restrictions of spinal joints. This reduces pathological sensation and pain from functionally and structurally disturbed paraspinal tissues. The therapy targets misalignment (tension) in spinal joints and surrounding soft tissues.
  • Myofascial (soft tissue) release. Soft tissue mobilization with special emphasis on fascial structures activates tissue connections using the so-called collagen bridges (cross-links). During manual soft tissue therapy, layers of collagen present in the fascia become mobilised and thus more flexible. In consequence, fibrocytes are triggered to produce glycosaminoglycans, which are necessary for proper hydration of collagen fibres and ensuring correct distance between individual layers of fibres at the microscopic level. This allows maintaining appropriate mobility of spine-related tissues or improves it for patients with back pain. Furthermore, mobilisation reduces excitation of nerve endings in paraspinal tissues, which are the most important source of local pain in the spine and of radiating pain or referred pain either in the shoulder blade (and/or arm) or buttock (and/or leg).
  • Local tissue drainage may be achieved with techniques of rhythmical contracting and relaxing of soft tissue in the nerve root area, facet joints and intervertebral discs of the injured spine segment (may give a radiating pain to the limbs). Such techniques improve local blood circulation, accelerating tissue regeneration, and reduce swelling and inflammation of tissue, and consequently bring direct and instant pain alleviation.
  • Treatment of scars after previously undergone neurosurgical treatment. The therapy leads to improvement of fascial flexibility (defined above), increases tissue mobility and reduces excitability of nerve endings.
