A NATURAL PAIN RELIEF METHOD
A REMEDY FOR SPINAL- MUSCULAR PROBLEMS, HEADACHE AND
The word Naprapathy (pronounced
”nuh-PRAH-puh-thee”) is formed from the Czech word ”napravit”
meaning ”to correct” and the Greek suffix ”pathos”
meaning suffering. Thus Naprapathy
means ”to correct or fix suffering”.
It is a system of manually applied movements, both passive and active,
designed to bring motion with consequent release of tension into abnormally
tense and rigid structures of the body.
Naprapathy is based on the theory that interference to
nerves, blood and lymph vessels can be caused by scar tissue in muscles and
ligaments, occurring as a result of accident or toxic accumulation. This causes
bodily dysfunction which Naprapathy calls ”secondary pathology”.
Naprapathy was developed at the turn of the century in
the USA by Dr. Oakley Smith. Dr. Smith was a student of D.D. Palmer, the founder
of Chiropractic. He worked for many years with hundreds of patients to research
the role of connective tissue damage in the body.
Through scientific consideration he developed a specific method of
testing and a new approach to treatment. He
perfected a specific technique of manual stretching aimed at correcting
connective tissue damage. This
treatment helps to re-establish full nerve force and free blood and lymph flow
thereby restoring the function of muscles and internal organs. The research of
Dr. Smith is the foundation of Naprapathy.
Naprapathy claims that scar
tissue and its contractions will yield with naprapathic treatment and having
yielded will stay yielded and stretched. Naprapathic
treatment is also aimed at creating a correct posture and symmetrical body.
Health is a normal, natural
state that everyone should enjoy. The
state of health is dependent upon being in balance structurally, biochemically
and mentally. This means that
disease can only occur when:
Imbalance in any of the three
systems may directly or indirectly cause scar tissue.
The science of Naprapathy is
predicated on the assumption that the human body, like all other organisms, is
self-healing and self-regenerating. It
will therefore normally restore itself to health under the right conditions.
Biological processes are totally responsible for this.
When someone is ill or in pain there is always a cause of it.
A Naprapath must aim to find the cause (or causes) of pain and disease
and then remove it (or them). With manual treatment aimed to re-create
structural balance, the innate healing process can be considerably speeded up
body and pains will subside.
Pain is caused by pressure. Pain is a warning signal of
impending danger. The best approach to remove pain is to attend to the causes
and not merely treating symptoms.
Although first developed in USA, Naprapathy is now
better known in Sweden where Naprapaths work in private clinics, fitness
centres, health and convalescent centres and for industries and companies.
Naprapathy has also gained recognition in the field of
sports medicine. Sport clubs often
have a Naprapath employed to treat and prevent injuries. Many Naprapaths also work in conjunction with a medical
doctor. Doctors of Naprapathy are
registered practitioners in Sweden and Finland.
The Swedish Naprapathic College receives students from
many European countries. After four
years of study of all aspects of Naprapathy including physiology, anatomy,
pathology, neurology, geriatrics, orthopaedics, psychology, desmology
(ligaments), chartology - the specific naprapathic diagnostic method, sport’s
medicine and many other subjects the student earns the degree Doctor of
Naprapathy or D.N.
Naprapaths have successfully treated different types of
problems for over 90 years using their own unique diagnostic and corrective
Naprapathy goes to the CAUSE of the problem, by DISPERSING SCAR TISSUE. This explain why permanent relief sometimes can be obtained in a few treatments even if the problem is many years old and the patient has been told that there is nothing that can be done when medicines and various treatments have failed to relive.
A few examples of conditions that have responded
successfully to naprapathic treatment are: spinal and muscular problems, sciatic
pain, sport’s injuries, bursitis, numbness, pins and needles, migraine,
headache, circulatory problems, arthritis and rheumatic diseases, jaw
joint problems, digestive
disorders, pains in shoulders, arms, hands, legs, knees and feet.
