Sympathetic nerve therapy at the physiotherapy practice in Berlin-Mitte

The sympathetic nervous system is a nerve that belongs to the so-called vegetative (autonomic) nervous system. Its task is to make the body more ready to perform, for example by accelerating the heartbeat and widening the airways. It is activated particularly in stress and emergency situations and is intended to prepare the body for fight or flight, for example.

The nerve cells of the sympathetic nervous system are located in the spinal cord. The nerve fibers emerging from there form nerve nodes, so-called ganglia. Together, these ganglia form a chain of nerve nodes that runs from the base of the skull to the coccyx on the left and right of the spine: the sympathetic trunk. The location in the direct vicinity of the rib heads makes the border cord susceptible to irritation, as even the smallest vertebral blockages can cause these rib heads to press on the ganglia and thus cause irritation.

A sympathetic nerve that is permanently activated in this way can lead to a variety of disorders and complaints. What they usually have in common is that they occur locally and worsen at rest – and that the search for the cause has so far often proved futile. Sympathetic nerve therapy, as offered by the physiotherapists at Physiotherapie-Praxis Berlin-Mitte, can often provide relief in these cases.

How does sympathetic nerve therapy work?

Sympathetic nerve therapy is carried out using only the hands, a locator pen and a ball plaster. The micropressure acts like a gentle massage with the aim of softening the muscles and connective tissue. This is followed by manual therapy to release the blockage in the joint. The spherical plaster (also known as Acuperm) is then placed on a corresponding tender point to ensure lasting relaxation of the muscles.

Sympathetic nerve therapy has a high success rate in eliminating persistent pain, such as migraines. This type of therapy can also alleviate the following complaints and symptoms:

High blood pressure: As the sympathetic nervous system can regulate cardiac output, this leads to increased cardiac output and, at the same time, to increased blood pressure as soon as the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated. Sympathetic nervous system therapy aims to release the irritation of the sympathetic nervous system in order to lower the blood pressure again.

Internal organs: A blockage of sections of the thoracic spine and dysfunctions in the nervous system promote the release of stomach acid, which in turn can lead to inflammation. Many diseases of the internal organs, such as gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease, can be treated by relaxing affected segments of the spinal cord as part of sympathetic therapy.

Visual disturbances: Visual disturbances that cannot be diagnosed by an ophthalmologist, for example because they are not caused by hormones, can occur as a result of irritation of the sympathetic nervous system. If there is a blockage in the first or second cervical vertebra, this can lead to a visual disturbance that can be resolved as part of sympathetic nerve therapy.

Heel spur: A heel spur often develops as a result of fascial bottlenecks, whereby a protruding bone forms. As the origin of this cannot be determined exactly, sympathetic nerve therapy locates the point of origin – usually starting with the pelvis – and attempts to correct the misalignment from there.

Sympathetic nervous system therapy treats many other conditions, whereby the aim is always to release blockages that lead to symptoms such as inflammation, pain or tension in the first place. This type of therapy is well suited to treating complaints from the ground up and, if possible, eliminating them without the use of medication.
