"Arthritis, Bursitis and Rheumatism Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring"
 

Arthritis and rheumatism are conditions of the joints. NCR can change joint function in two major ways: through its ability to change:

1) the positions of the bones of the spine and pelvis, and

2) the nervous system.

People who have these conditions never have perfect posture. As NCR changes the postural patterns, the areas of pain and discomfort in the spine and pelvis diminish. When the weight-bearing patterns of the spine and pelvis are changed, the weight-bearing patterns of the hips, knees and feet change too. The sore points in the knee (for instance) will no longer be at the point of maximum weight bearing. This means that the position of the feet during walking (toe-in or toe-out, for instance) will not be the same. This can make incredible changes in a person's pain pattern.

The nervous system controls everything in the body, including the immune system. With conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune arthritides, optimizing immune function can make a great change in levels of inflammation.

I have rarely seen people with bursitis, yet I have seen many people wrongly diagnosed with bursitis. Fortunately, with these shoulder conditions, there is hope. Often the problem with a chronically frozen shoulder or other painful shoulder conditions is both postural and muscular. The muscular problems are often caused by the joint pain created from the postural pattern, which triggers chronic spasms of the muscles to guard the body from performing painful joint movements.

This occurs especially after whiplash injuries, when the straightening of the neck and upper back (from the head moving too far forward from the injury) leads to a posture in which the shoulders are rolled forward and inward, accompanied by chronic muscle spasm of the neck, upper back and shoulders. When the shoulders are like this, performing normal shoulder activities like reaching toward the ceiling or combing the hair becomes mechanically impossible. A person cannot reach toward the ceiling if the shoulder joint is aimed at the wall and the muscles are as tight as cables. With NCR treatment, the postural pattern can be improved so that the shoulder is positioned more normally, allowing a person to return to more everyday activities.
