The Gillespie Approach Thought Process

A mother emails: “I am writing because we have been trying to figure out the pain that my 17-year-old daughter suffers with constantly. She is a twin, and I came across something that said you helped a woman living in pain all her life. My daughter was diagnosed with amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome, but only given stretches to do. I’m hoping to find other answers. I’d love to make an appointment to see if you could help.”

The Breakdown

“I am writing because we have been trying to figure out the pain that my 16-year-old daughter suffers with constantly.” When chronic pain presents at this age, birth trauma is most likely the root cause of the problem. Maybe she has had some trauma in her life, but certainly not enough to cause this severe problem. My focus would be to find out what happened in those forty weeks. Tight fascia may be irritating free nerve endings, causing her pain.

“She is a twin … .” Bingo, enough said. I have discussed the sustained compressive force issue dozens of times over the years. A multiple birth is a huge red flag for newborns to be checked and treated.

“You helped a woman living in pain all her life.” Yes, the Gillespie Approach did, but it may not be the answer for everyone. Every body has a different story. Since there is little downside to treatment, therapy is definitely worth a try.

“My daughter was diagnosed with amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome … .” Since the top pediatric doctors in Philadelphia have ruled out all the other medical possibilities, fascial strain may be the cause. It is the critical missing piece of the puzzle for many pediatric conditions.

“Only given stretches to do … .” John Barnes P.T. has taught that stretching and exercise will not release fascial strain. We need to listen to the body to revisit and release the offending birth strains for authentic healing.

“I’m hoping to find other answers.” Her answer may lie in the release of a tight fascial web.
