Naprapathic Medicine


What is Naprapathic Medicine (Naprapathy)?
The body is comprised of connective tissues; ligament, tendons, muscles, cartilage and other structures that support every system of the body. When the body is too loose, or too tight, (imbalanced) pain may occur. Naprapathy, derived from the Czech word napravit meaning “to correct” and the Greek word pathos meaning “suffering”. It is the goal of Naprapathic Medicine and one of the missions of Well With My Soul Holistic Health Center to restore natural flexibility and release muscle tension, leaving the connective tissues pliable and in balance. Similar to clinical massage therapy, Naprapathic Medicine relieves pain, enhances range of motion, improves blood flow, nerve conduction and the body’s ability to heal itself. This is accomplished via gentle hands-on manipulation of soft tissue (manual medicine), food therapy and treatment modalities that use heat, cold, light, water and radiant energy. Further treatments involve stretches, joint mobilization, rehabilitative exercise, relaxation techniques and assisted devices such as ultrasound, electro-stimulation and laser therapy. Some of the common conditions include:

Neck pain
Back pain
Shoulder Pain
Joint Pain
Headaches
Fibromyalgia
Muscle Spasms
Strains/Sprains
Sciatica
Repetitive Motion Syndrome
Lifestyle/Diet

What is the difference between Naprapathy and Massage Therapy?
The biggest difference between Naprapathy and Massage Therapy is the spine. While both disciplines deal with connective tissue, Doctors of Naprapathy are trained to address the spine and the nervous system.
