The Fascial Manipulation Method is a publication featuring actual case reports. This publication is dedicated to the deepening our understanding of the common dysfunctions we encounter in our clinical practice, how they present and how they can be treated with Fascial Manipulation. Professionals tell us their cases, accurately describing the patients symptomatology, the working plan they have chosen and the results obtained due to the treatment. The names of the patients have been modified for privacy reasons
Nuki, a dog whose breed is a Labrador, 8 years old, female, sterilized.
I know Nuki as the dog of a patient at the clinic. The woman during the treatment told of the problems of incontinence of her dog arising after the sterilization surgery 2 years ago.
The general condition of the dog is complicated by the presence of epileptic crises from the age of 9 months, a problem for which it takes a specific drug therapy (Soliphen, bromide of potassium ). She is also given Enurace at 25 mg. for the incontinence.
We decided, in agreement with the veterinarian, to submit Nuki to some Fascial Manipulation treatment to try to help her manage incontinence and possibly try to reduce the drugs.
We begin with the motor verification: Nuki presents a gait at times a little staggering, the hind limbs a little crossed, sometimes stumbling. This, the owner explained, is a consequence of the drug therapy for epilepsy. The motor verification of the various segments does not give particular
During the palpation verification, on the other hand, we find densifications in different sequences and diagonals. Both CCs and CFs are evaluated. We decide to treat the diagonals of AN-LA and RE-ME. We treat the points of an-la lu, an-la th, an-la sc and an-la ge , all bilaterally; re-me pv, reme th lt, re-me cu bilaterally. After the first treatment, we decided, together with the owner and the veterinarian, to reduce the therapy of Enurace to ¼ of cp.
After about 10 days, I see Nuki again. The owner notes that the days passed without any particular problems. The dog did not have urinary leakage even though we had reduced the Enurace. The palpation verification is repeated and points on the horizontal plane are identified: ir-cl, ir-th, ir pv and ir cx bilateral, er-sc, lu, pv and ge bilaterally. We decide to treat the most densified points, therefore: ir-pv and cx, er-sc, lu and pv.
After the second session we try to remove the remaining ¼ therapy too.
After another 10 days, they came for a third session in order to check Nuki. The owner reports that despite having completely removed the therapy she did not have urinary leakage.
At the re-assessment there are still some points of the horizontal plane a that are little densified. We then we go back to treat ir-pv and cx, er-lu and dissolve also ir-cl er-th, er-ge bilaterally.
Currently, 3 months after the last treatment, Nuki does not take therapy for incontinence and has no urinary leakage.
