Place the XLR8 over the area of involvement (AOI), is commonly performed while doing a manual soft tissue release to affect the nerve function and pathway. The clinician may choose to (#2) laser over the nerve root (located using the myotome/dermatome chart) or the organ involved (using the Merrick chart).
If Neurogenic Inflammation this is a new term / condition to you, it is an incredibly important concept. The basic premise is that nerves should be able to slide through muscle and connective tissue similar to dental floss.
When the nerve itself becomes affected by inflammation, a pipe cleaner effect can take place. The physiological and mechanical aspects of neurogenic inflammation are an important factor in understanding fascial restrictions, joint misalignment, and subluxations. Rolfers and practitioners that practice Structural Integration with the Erchonia Laser are masters at relieving neurogenic inflammation.
