When your nerves are sensitive to normal movement it is referred to as ‘neural sensitivity’. Nerves usually like movement, however when they are sensitised due to injury, they don’t, and this can cause muscles to tighten and stop you from stretching them.

Nerve tension can be accompanied by sensations such as pins and needles, burning and numbness. It is important to treat the muscles and joints around the nerve to promote neural mobility. In addition, nerve mobilisation techniques can gradually desensitise the nerve and get them moving again.

Happy nerves don’t cause pain!

At Wellness Embodied, we stress the importance of a correct assessment of nerve movement and awareness of the nerves as a source of pain- an approach which we’ve discovered is often neglected! From shoulder pain referred from the neck, to hip pain referred from the back, the nerves should not be ignored!
