Research

Contributing to the Betterment of Pain Treatment

Developing a knowledge and appreciation for research is a big part of being a student at CNS. As part of this experince students will complete 2 Case Studies as part of their time in the program. Click here for some examples of what current and former students have worked on.

CNS faculty and staff are committed to furthering the effectiveness of pain treatment across all disciplines of health care. They regularly contribute to the industry by presenting research findings and advancements in Neurosomatic Therapy Here are some articles from their research:

  • St. John Neuromuscular Therapy is Effective in Reducing Symptoms of Intractable Headaches: A Complementary and Integrative Medicine Study Paul St. John, R. Levine, et al.M

Sharing Their Clinical Experience

In practice CNS faculty has had many insights into the treatment of pain and dysfunction. Here are a few industry articles:

Learning from Industry Leaders

In addition to sharing their findings with the greater community, CNS faculty has a passion for learning from other experts in the field of pain treatment. Here is other research related to Neurosomatic Therapy:

When I myself began having issues with back pain, and none of the regular treatments I use with my own patients seemed to provide relief, I discovered Neurosomatic Therapy. The dramatic results I experienced encouraged me to further research and ultimately decide to begin regularly referring patients for Neurosomatic Therapy. Incorporating this new modality has allowed me to achieve new levels of recovery for patients where I could previously only manage their symptoms.

After just a few sessions of INT with the outstanding therapists at the St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center, my patients were reporting back to me verifiable significant improvements. In particular the relationship between TMJ and other structural imbalances such as an anatomically short leg. The relationship between form and function and its importance cannot be over-stated! My last three patients that were to sent for therapy all came back to me reporting complete abatement of their symptoms

NST combines a deep knowledge of muscle dynamics with a thorough analysis about what is going on with the body in a way that is being missed by many other disciplines. The therapy is implemented very uniquely and it is done with the idea of integrating the functional aspect of the muscles with the structure. Understanding that marriage between structure and function is why the area not only gets fixed but also truly stabilized. I love referring patients for Neurosomatic Therapy because they get great results.
