What is this muscle organ connection?

If you’ve been a patient of mine for a while then you have heard me talk about muscle organ connection.

It’s not something new, this concept has been around since late eighteen-hundreds. A physician Dr. Head noticed that some of his patients would complain of muscle, joint, and ligament pain, and there was a distinctive connection between internal organs and muscles. So he created Head zones

Besides Dr Head there have been other doctors in the early nineteen hundreds that addressed muscle organ connection.

Why am I mentioning this?

Sometimes, when you have pain in a muscle or a joint, and you’ve been to different practitioners, have tried variety of modalities, and you are still in pain, then knowing these connections would be very helpful. I don’t want you to memorize them, just keep in mind that it’s a possibility.

Saying this, I don’t want you to think that every time you have muscle pain that there’s an organ involved. Most of the time muscle pain is just a muscle pain.

I’m talking about people that haven’t had any injury, trauma, no obvious disc herniation, bulging disc, etc. they have been suffering from pain for a period of time, have tried pretty much every modality and still in pain.

For example:

Are you someone that has ongoing digestive issues, constipated regularly, may get gas, bloating after a meal?

If you answered yes to any of this and you get regular neck, back, upper thigh and/or hamstring pain, then maybe your pain is connected to your digestive issues. In that case you need to address your digestion first to be pain free and have lasting results.

Remember, it’s all about having the knowledge and making informed decisions.
