What we treat?

There are many symptoms and/or illnesses that are the consequence of the Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction due to chronic stress and they are frequently misdiagnosed and, therefore, treated incorrectly.

Some medical diagnoses can be based on what are believed to be anomalies, such as vertebral degeneration and the prolapses or herniated disks; however, research has shown that these are normal signs of ageing and generally not the cause of the pain.

Other conditions diagnosed by physical examination alone, such as Repetitive Strain Injury and Fibromyalgia are believed to be incurable, yet both can be fully reversed when recognised and treated as Stress Illness.

For many people the cause of their symptoms cannot be found and, in fact, 21% of the Primary Care attenders in the United Kingdom have symptoms without medical explanation and we suspect that the majority of these are also another form of Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction caused by chronic stress.

Obviously, many symptoms camouflaged as Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction due to chronic stress can have a very serious cause and with the aim of treating them safely, these more serious causes have to be ruled out, such as cancer, infection, fracture, autoimmune disorders.

Conditions of chronic pain commonly treated here

  • Muscle-skeletal conditions such as: Back pain, neck pain, and pain in shoulder joints, elbows, hips, knees, feet, such as plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Tension headaches, migraines, headaches, tinnitus, ringing in the ears.
  • Vertigo/dizziness.
  • Lumbar and pelvic pain in postpartum associated to the use of epidural anesteshya.
  • Pain produced by osteoarthritis and ‘aging’.
  • Chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue.
  • Sequelae of stroke or cerebrovascular accidents, hemiplegia, hemiparesia.
  • Conditions such as that of ‘restless leg syndrome’.

We treat the majority of the types of pain and chronic conditions. Also TMS, or Tension Myoneural Syndrome, Mind-Body Syndrome, or Pschycophysiological Disorder (PPD).

The term ‘chronic’ refers to the duration of the pain, not to its incurability. Most chronic pain has been experienced during more than three months.

Always consult your doctor to rule out any infection, cancer, fractures and autoimmune disorders before calling us.
