Your Health and Neuralign

Neuralign can assist patients experiencing pain or limited movement associated with joint misalignment, unsatisfactory muscle condition and bad posture.  This new treatment builds upon 20 years of clinical practice, and groundbreaking scientific research.  It has impressed many thousands of patients with spectacular success rates.  Most clients report that Neuralign is gentle and more effective than any treatments they have previously tried.

Since basic trials in the mid 1980 s, the basis of this treatment has been well established and is now supported by PhD research in the Department of Physiology at the University of Adelaide, SA.

All muscles in the body have an optimum length at which they work best.  When an area is injured or stressed, these optimum lengths can be altered due to small changes in the joint structures.  It is the aim of this treatment to align the joint structures, and allow the adjoining muscles again to work at their optimum length.  This reduces fatigue of muscles, allows greater workload, and removes stress from ligaments, tendons and cartilage.  After optimum alignment is regained, the wear and tear on the directly effected joints is reduced and many of the compensatory tensions and pain can disappear.

This is a very simple aim, and is similar to that seen in many other modalities.  The main difference with Neuralign is that the whole back, including the pelvis, shoulders girdle and neck are addressed in each treatment.  Further to this, peripheral joints, eg. knees, ankles and elbows can also be treated if required.  By treating the whole back in each treatment, the Neuralign practitioner is sure to treat both the original trauma site, and any areas of compensation that may have occurred since the injury.  This ensures that the recovery time in many cases is quicker, and the necessity for long term treatment is reduced by the efficiency of this action.

As gentle and controlled pressure is applied to nerve specific points on the body during a Neuralign treatment, this stimulates tension activity that causes changes within and around stressed muscles.  This simple neurological process explains the changes in activity of skeletal muscles during a treatment, and therefore the subsequent changes that occur in the body structure following a Neuralign treatment. 

No bone cracking, joint twisting, tapping, muscle bouncing or flicking is applied and so a high degree of comfort and relaxation remains throughout the treatment.  Some patients even sleep through their treatment.

Treatment is suitable for people of all ages from babies to pregnant women and senior citizens.  A standard treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, although this may vary depending on the patient s individual condition and the injury being treated.

The changes initiated during a Neuralign treatment may continue for up to 48 hours post treatment, as the body finds its most optimum working posture.  The practitioner may advise a patient to have a warm to hot shower or bath after a Neuralign treatment to help ease any muscle ache that may occur following these changes.

The high public demand for this treatment identifies it as a viable and cost effective alternative for many joint and muscular based problems.  Neuralign practitioners can treat injuries caused through workplace, motor vehicle and sporting accidents. 
Neuralign practitioners currently receive referrals from medical practitioners and allied health professionals who have experienced, and so recognise, the ability of this treatment to help their patients.

The cost effectiveness of Neuralign and the rates of patient recovery are so noticeable that the public demand for health insurers to register Neuralign practitioners is now being recognised.

The Australian Neuralign Practitioners Association (A.N.P.A.) organises regular research up-date and training conferences for its members and is the administration body for all Neuralign training courses.  A.N.P.A. is a self-regulated practitioners association that assures all its members have a high level of professionalism, up to date knowledge and support.
