• frozen shoulder / shoulder and elbow pain / tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
• circulatory problems
• digestion problems
• joint pains, lumbago
• muscle spasms
• inability to relax
• rheumatic pain
• minor sports injuries
• Physical and structural
• Hormonal and chemical
• Emotional (in the context of the neurological implications).
But more importantly, you should understand how complaints are viewed with NIS.
Prior to your NIS appointment, your complaint may have already been given a ‘label’, your diagnosis: the name given to describe a particular group of symptoms. The list is infinite, but a few examples are: asthma, arthritis, ADD, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, dermatitis, the list goes on.
What these labels do is describe symptoms, they do not establish the causes. NIS does not treat the ‘label’ or the symptom pattern itself. Instead, it addresses the underlying issues driving the symptom pattern by restoring all the body’s systems to optimum function. As a matter of course, the symptom pattern will then resolve.
The Causes Behind Your Symptoms
With that said, Neurolink’s (the research centre behind NIS) philosophy is more concerned about the neurophysiological reasons that have caused your complaint than the complaint itself. For example, if you have ongoing spinal pain and constantly need to have it manipulated, NIS will address the reasons why you need ongoing adjustments. If you depend on medication, NIS will address the reasons why you are needing to take the medication. If your complaint is allergies, NIS will address the reasons for the substance intolerance.
The following examples may give further insight to some of the causal factors that are considered through the NIS protocols. The same principles will apply to other ‘labels’.
1. Let's take a day-to-day activity like climbing stairs. Among other things, the correct processing of visual stimuli is essential for a smooth sequence of movements to successfully negotiate an obstacle like a staircase. However, if the communication between the visual and the motor system is faulty, pain in the knee joint, for example, can occur due to recurring stress. The actual cause, however, could be a disturbance in the eye movements. If this is remedied, the joint pain disappears.
2. Clinical Example: A twenty year old female patient has been suffering from non-specific, recurrent, spasmodic abdominal pain for over two years. All clinical examinations (laboratory examinations, ultrasound, CT, MRI, gastric and colonoscopy) were clear. When examined with the Neurological Integration System, a disturbance showed in the area of the right elbow joint. Segmental anatomy has taught us that multiple elbow-based muscles have close neural connections to certain sections of the small intestine. Upon detailed inquiry, the patient reported a riding accident with fracture in the elbow joint about six weeks before the onset of symptoms. The NIS treatment therefore takes into account this connection.
3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease once again only label a batch of symptoms. As far as Neurolink is concerned they are expressions of incomplete digestion. This results in a chronic and toxic build-up to affect the liver, gallbladder, and pancreatic functions. Pain, constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating are symptomatic of this condition. NIS looks to screen for, and address why the body is not completing the digestion process.
NIS is Specific to You
With NIS everything is tailored to you and your needs meaning everyone's individual tolerances are accounted for making NIS a unique approach. It is very possible that two patients presenting with the same ‘complaint’ will have quite different causal factors and therefore different requirements.
NIS is a completely safe, non-invasive, interesting and comfortable treatment. It does not involve any drugs or manual manipulation and is suitable for all ages.
