Chronic Pain

We Treat Chronic Pain Without Surgery or Drugs

Adhesions can form anywhere in the body – on nerves, organs or muscles. Here, tiny but powerful cross-links, the building blocks of adhesions, form between muscle cells, restricting our movement.

Chronic pain is the core focus of our work at Clear Passage. Whether debilitating or simply annoying, pain robs us of our quality of life. The focus of our manual physio/physical therapy is to decrease adhesions — the internal scars that form after injury, surgery or infection and rob us of our ability to move and function without pain.

Surgery can help but can also create more adhesions and, in turn, more pain. With over two decades of experience, we treat adhesions by detaching or deforming them with our hands, naturally.

What Is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain refers to pain that lasts more than three months. The pain can be constant or recurring and may occur in one or more areas of the body. For some, the pain can be debilitating; for others, the worst part is its persistence, e.g. “I just can’t get free of it.”

Many medical professionals rely heavily on X-rays, CT scans and MRIs to find areas of pain and dysfunction but adhesions are generally not visible on these tests. When there is no medical cause (a disease) and nothing shows up on diagnostic tests, the cause of the pain is often adhesions.

Adhesions form during the healing process from surgery, trauma, infection or inflammation earlier in life. The smallest adhesion can pull on pain-sensitive structures within the body with great strength and create pain, which is called often “unexplained” because its cause is impossible to detect using traditional medical diagnostic tests.

Adhesions can form like curtains, ropes or balls of twine. Impossible to view with x-ray, CT or MRI, they can bind structures or cause pain with a strength of nearly 2,000 pounds per square inch (140 kilos / sq. cm.)

Adhesions from abdominal or pelvic surgery can pull the upper body forward, making it difficult to stand straight. Back, neck or head pain can ensue as muscles struggle to keep the body upright.

Treatment for Chronic Pain (Wurn Technique)

The chronic pain patient is a perfect match for our services; we specialize in treating men and women who have been unable to find relief elsewhere. We began our focus on chronic pain over 20 years ago, when we were searching for a way to relieve our founder Belinda’s chronic pain after radiation therapy. Her physicians told her there was nothing else they could do for her pain. Belinda refused to give up and we began searching for a way to decrease her pain, resulting in the development of the Wurn Technique®.

We have found that adhered tissues cause pain and dysfunction as the adhesions pull on structures that should normally be free to glide over each other. We are skilled in using our hands to palpate sites where adhesions glue structures together, causing pain and/or dysfunction. We use our site-specific manual therapy, the Wurn Technique, to address these adhesions, strand by strand.
