Rolfing & Rolf Movement-Pain Management

Jan 21, 2008
As the body succumbs to pain and dis-ease from genetics, injury, or trauma it is ever more obvious that space
and organization in the body are necessary. Certified Rolfing and Rolf Movement manipulates and re-integrates the tissue and nervous system to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus relieving pain, reducing compensations and enabling a more authentic expression.

Certified Rolfing is the premium Structural Integration and pain management office in Fort Worth-Texas providing therapy resources for Orthopedic, Chiropractic, Physical, Psycho, and Massage Therapist. Specializing in assessing and addressing fascial restrictions associated with Scoliosis, Sciatica, TMJ, Fascitis, Fibromyalgia, CTS, RLS and common aches and pains in the legs, hips, back, neck, shoulder, and hands.

Usually postural issues or chronic pain in the foot, leg, knee, hip, back, neck or head leads an individual to a bone specialist like an Orthopedic or even a Chiropractic Doctor. When a bone is manipulated towards alignment, usually it will quickly recede back to its prior position because the bone is just part of an asymmetrical pattern that is encased in connective tissue or fascia that permeates the whole structure.

The connective tissue that suspends and isolates each bone is distributed throughout the body, so the pain you have in one part of the body can feel associated with pain in another part of the body. Certified Rolfing and Rolf Movement assesses the individuals whole structural and functional pattern in an attempt to bring the whole body towards a less painful structural potential.

Certified Rolfing de-rotates each segment of tissue in the body, the tissue between joints, rotating one section, and then de-rotating the next to bring the body towards resolution of the counter rotated segments. These counter rotated segments are theorized to be the agents of most of our unexplainable discomfort and pain. Some specialist will say that there is a need to operate or subscribe medication to resolve or mask the pain and in some cases that is true, but the Certified Rolfing 10 Series should always be the primary attempt at resolving these structural issues.

Physical and Massage therapy are great in some rehabilitative settings, but is a vain attempt at organizing the soft tissue segments in the body that predict, balance, alignment, and symmetry. The science associated with the techniques utilized in this body organization is only available through the Rolf Institute and its highly knowledgeable faculty.

When assessing and addressing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome the connective tissue of the carpal, metacarpal, radius, and ulna are de-rotated and a reclamation of space allows our body geometry to resource towards a structural ideal and in most cases a pain reduction from easing the compressed segments. Like wise, frozen shoulder can be addressed in much the same way by addressing the respective segments in the X, Y, and Z coordinates in the connective tissue structures.

If pain is caused by Scoliosis or even common neck and back pain the segments involved can be de-rotated towards a structural ideal and again in most cases the reclamation of space is associated with a reduction in pain. De-rotating these segments and reclaiming the space in between the segments forfeited to an asymmetrical pattern can address some hip, leg, and knee pain.

Bunions, like CTS are a result of compressed and rotated/counter rotated ankle, metatarsal, tarsal, and phalanx bones that drive the first metatarsal bone medial or lateral with a subsequent counter rotation in the proximal phalanx. Restless Leg Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Plantar Fasciatis could possibly be addressed with Certified Rolfing. I have seen incredible results and improvement with these cases from a reclamation of space in the segments associated.

These conditions seem to be connective tissue in nature so the Certified Rolfing Ten Series has the best science of any therapy, treatment, or program available to deal with pain associated with soft tissue issues. Orthopedic Doctors and Chiropractors are a part of a necessary whole in terms of pain management, and Physical and Massage therapist have there respective places also, but not in the same context as Certified Rolfing and Rolf Movement.

No one therapy or pain management practice has all the answers but when viewed through a lens of practicality, Certified Rolfing is a great alternative to compliment conventional medicine and a Certified Rolfer can be located in or around most major cities.

The Certified Rolfing Ten Series has the ability to reduce pain and release tension in the connective and myofascial tissue of the body associated with TMJ, CTS, RLS, Fibromyalgia, Sciatica, Fascitis, Bunions, and Scoliosis. Fascial asymmetries can cause foot, leg, knee, hip, back, shoulder, neck, arm, hand, and head pain; integration therapy is necessary. Orthopedic, Chiropractic, Physical, and Massage Therapist recognize Rolfing and Rolf Movement as premium pain management utilizing Structural, Functional, and Postural Integration.
