If you are not receiving long term relief from deep tissue massage, stretching, or other therapies stemming from a specific chronic issue, Four Wellness will test for nerve entrapment in two ways; 2 point discrimination assists in mapping out varying levels of sensitivities and through manual restriction/asymmetry screening.

In as little as 90 seconds to 5 mins of strain treatment to fibroblasts aka “dosing”, Rock Blade Therapy, Myofacial Release, will decrease and can reverse phosphorylation of the protein (peptides) the mediates the apoptosis (death) of the cells.

Fun Fact: There are 72 kilometers or 45 miles of peripheral nerve in a human body. Every cubic centimeter of skin organ has a nerve or portion thereof, supplying it, embedded into it. ~ Diane Jacobs

Motor sign and symptoms of nerve entrapment:

• Cramps

• Fasciculations (twitching)

• Muscle Loss

• Muscle weakness

• Impaired balance/coordination

 

Sensory signs and symptoms of nerve entrapment:

• Numbness

• Reduced Position Sense

• Tingling, Burning pain

 

Autonomic nerve entrapment:

• Skin, Hair, Nail changes

• Skin Allodynia (pain)

• Bladder control

• Blood pressure/Heart Rate change

• Sweat abnormalities

There are two types of nerve entrapments that cause a host of issues. The most commonly known nerve entrapment is through tunnels; for example, carpal tunnel. Tunnel entrapments narrow osteofibrous/fibromuscular tunnels and is basically a cranky nerve that has become compressive or tensional danger to the neurons inside (Lundborg 1988)

The lesser known, “grommet holes” are cutaneous nerves housed in skin ligaments narrowing aponeurotic ring skin ligament. We have grommet holes throughout our entire body. Cutaneous nerves rise up out of the depths of the body, surface through dense body wall into the skin organ, and run parallel to it, behind or within it. Sore spots on the surface of the body coincide to a large extent with the “grommet holes” or exit points for these nerves that emerge from beneath and into the skin organ. (Diane Jacobs)

Damage to or disease affecting nerve entrapment may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected.

Causes:

• Systemic Diseases (diabetes)

• Vitamin Deficiency

• Medications (chemotherapy)

• Trauma + Ischemia

• Radiation Therapy

• Excessive alcohol consumption

• Immune system disease

• Genetic

• Idiopathic (unknown)
