I worked with her for five visits with some improvement, but not complete resolution. At the time we were not completely sure what caused her problem.
More recently she again received injected fertility drugs, and the pain returned with a vengeance. I have seen her for three visits, and her progress is slow going. When we connected the dots, it strongly appears that her fascial web does not like these drugs.
I have seen this phenomenon before with other female patients. I hypothesize that these drugs got stuck in the fascial web to cause free pain nerve endings to fire. When I did therapy to help free the restricted fascia, the tissues were slow to let go.
Usually during a typical session, the therapist can feel a clean fascial release, and the patient can feel the tissue letting go distinctly. In these specific patients the tissues feel more like molasses, and the release is sluggish at best. On top of that aspect, the medication may recirculate into the system at a possibly unintended time.
Since I have only seen a small sample of these patients, this may not be true for every woman in this situation. But I just want to make every Gillespie Approach provider aware of these drugs possibly having a painful side-effect.
I know of no part of the body that equals the fascia as a hunting ground. All nerves go to and terminate in that great system, the fascia. By its action we live and by its failure we die. The soul of man, with all the streams of pure living water, seems to dwell in the fascia of his body. Disease begins in the fascia.Dr. Andrew Still, the Father of Osteopathy
