This story of one man’s struggle with occipital neuralgia is very typical of cases I see on a frequent basis. If you’ve suffered from this condition or if you’ve been running the medical gamut only to come up with no answers then I’m sure you will identify with this man’s story.
The motion he mentions that “cut his pain in half” is actually similar to the meningeal release. This is the “big stretch” adjustment you’ve experienced if you are under the care of an ABC doctor. The fact that he has had lasting relief from such a move indicates that he would probably benefit greatly from one properly performed.
Many patients suffering from this condition also intuitively understand that this is related to poor posture. Releasing tension in the meninges is one of the keys to regaining proper posture. Incidentally, the meninges attach at the lower back and at the upper neck – two spinal areas most prone to pain.
