I believe that structure governs function and function governs structure. Therefore if your muscular or skeletal frame is structurally imbalanced it will affect the way it functions. Likewise If you are not functioning properly (mentally) then it will cause physiological changes at a cellular level effecting both function and structure.
I also believe that a structural / physical problem is often a manifestation of an emotional condition. So you have to consider the state of a patients mind or life state when looking at reoccurring physical problems. Therefore in order to get to a cause of a physical problem we must work on the structure (muscles, bones and nerves)... AS WELL AS consider the individuals personal circumstances. This is working Holistically. I treat the cause of a physical problem. This is an Osteomyologist. The way you work, sit, stand, sleep, walk or play takes its toll on your body every day. I help you find out what it is you have done or doing that is causing you to feel pain, then I can give you the solution and way around it. This is a vital element to getting better.
