Rééquilibration Fonctionnelle and Chronic Pain

In Rééquilibration Fonctionnelle the whole person is evaluated considering non-only mechanic causes of the pain, but as well the emotional sphere and the impact of the autonomic system and biomagnectic interaction of the body.

How does it work?

It is a reproducible method with inclusion/exclusion model, which means that only if satisfied some parameters the treatment can be included and effective.

The method recognises 4 levels of body compensation to the mechanical and emotional stress.

To learn more what is stress and what causes follow the link for GENERAL ADAPTION SYNDROME(GAS),

https://www.5starclinicltd.com/acupuncture/stress-and-general-adaption-syndrome-gas/

Are individuated 3 major groups, each group is composed from 2 unit.

Below a chart example of the 4 level of compensation of an individual belonging to the first group.

4 Levels Compensation:

Compensation number 1: Reactive Perturbations

Compensation number 2: Land Changes

Compensation number 3: Reactive Somatization

Compensation number 4: Acquired Somatizations

Initially all these compensations are helpful to cope with the environment and are reversible. Therefore, as soon as the stressor stop the compensation state ceases, but if the individual will stay for a longer amount of time will be “locked in this state”.

The first 2 levels of compensation are marked with the blue sinusoid. They are the first 2 emergency levels that help the organisms, they are always reversible.

A good amount of rest, good news, the completion of a project or anything else which reverse the status of stress will bring the organism to a normal state.

Compensation number 3: Reactive Somatization

It is initiated when the body requires a larger amount of energy which can’t be supplied from the first 2.

As long as it’s not sustained for long time it is reversible and allows the organism to successful face important situations or tasks.

Otherwise it will be “locked in this state”.

Compensation number 4: Acquired Somatizations

It can appear as an evolution of the compensation number 3 when a further stress is added to the organism or can be brought directly from a strong physical/emotional stress such as an accident, a bereavement, calamity etc.

Each individual will react to a particular stress in a completely different way, to give an example for a person a divorce can be catastrophe, for another just a normal piece of life.

Reactive Somatization/Acquired Somatizations and Chronic Pain

Talking about Chronic pain we will focus on the last 2 levels of compensation.

Both of them are associate with CONSTANT pain.

Constant means that the pain  appears with the same pattern or is constantly there (every day).

For example:

  • I have pain in my back every time when I run or every time when I am in a particular position or every time I lift something(same pattern).
  • I am in pain every day (even if with different intensity).The pain can or cannot be related to any particular activity or position.

What kind of pain can we found?

It can be a joint, muscle, tendon or bone pain, a visceral pain(stomach, bowel ovaries etc),  Headache or orofacial pain, Posttraumatic pain, a similar Neuropathic pain, therefore which follows a nerve course.

How the assessment will determine if the method

can help or not?

5 Prerequisites must be Present:

1) CONSTANT pain

2) Each of the 3 main group has particular clinical manifestations associated to the pain.

These Clinical Manifestations involve the skin, eyes , ears, sweating, vessels etc for what the person perceive altered sensations.

Examples are:

  • Cramps
  • Static shock
  • Urgency or frequent urination
  • Watery/tired eyes

  • feeling of a ball or pressure behind stomach or chest
  • Needs to go to the toilet caused by particular situation

5) Tenderness on particular acupoints associated with the unit of each of 3 main group.

The scientific evidence behind the method is its reproducibility.

Therefore, only if the prerequisites are satisfied the method can be included and it is effective.

Furthermore, each treatment session must partially or totally improve the symptoms related and affect the pain.
