I contend that many people unknowingly suffer from the effects of their birth trauma.
A fifty-year-old woman presented with swelling and pain in the large knuckle extending to her right middle finger. Her Philadelphia neurologist was stumped, suggesting a possible immune reaction.
She has had chronic right neck, shoulder, and TMJ issues for decades. She has clenched her teeth for years and wears a protective night guard. There was no specific trauma to cause her hand problem, which has been bothering her for two months.
The second visit showed a cord wrapped red ring around her throat and a specific fetal restricted position where her right hand was jammed into her wrist. That hand-wrist pattern took three visits to clear.
At the beginning of the fifth visit, her hand was 90% better. Her neck and shoulder were also much improved. As a bonus, she stopped clenching her teeth and put her mouthguard away. She can bite into an apple now and chew it, something she was unable to do before therapy.
Her jaw is now fine; I never touched her mouth. My clinical education of TMJ has come a long way in fifty years. I hope dentistry will discover that aspect someday.
I believe that the work at birth would have changed her life. I am hopeful the world will see this approach soon.
“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.”Dr. Andrew Still, the Father of Osteopathy
