Acute and chronic pain is the most common reason why patients seek medical help, and in particular to osteopaths.
There are many types of pain. They arise for a reason, and a dialogue with them requires professionalism.
There are pains that, by their manifestation, indicate hidden osteopathic injuries: they, like a compass needle, allow you to find and eliminate somatic dysfunction.
Some pains protect the internal space from damage, it is better not to touch them, they "protect" important organs.
There are pains, which are the final stage of treatment, when the pathological process goes out from the depths, in these cases, it is worth helping the body to throw out "unnecessary rubbish" from itself.
Different types of pains and different tactics of exposure, even if the localization and nature of the pains coincide. This position can be easily explained by the example of pathological torsions and somatic dysfunctions, taking into account the involvement of one or another meridian: Jing Jing, Jing Mai, Jing Bie, Luo Mai.
The meridian system carries its history from the depths of centuries and in recent years has brought many discoveries of an applied and fundamental nature to osteopathy. From the point of view of meridians, osteopaths have an opportunity to explain the mechanisms by the occurrence and formation of some "pathological torsions" and some primary somatic dysfunctions. Of course, meridians are only a part of the entire system of "internal respiration", but they are extremely interesting in their applied meaning.
Modern osteopathy lives in a time of change, and these are both new requirements and new opportunities. Ancient sources revealed their knowledge and it is ridiculous not to use it.
