They are conditions that have been present for some time and won’t go away by themselves. In some instances, your pain may come and go, but generally never leaves for good.
Myofascial Slings are continuous planes of muscle and a connective tissue called fascia. A muscle can have an attachment to another muscle, then to another muscle and so forth because of fascia creating a ‘chain reaction’ or sling.
Impulses flow from your brain through the spinal cord exiting paired nerves that leave between each spinal joint. These nerves send impulses to every cell and tissue of your body. Because these nerves are positioned so closely to moving bones of the spine, should there be improper movement or alignment these nerves can be irritated or compromise nerve function. Correcting the body’s balance using Finch Therapy often restores function of your nervous system resulting in good health.
