Thanks much for this. i do have a question. Ive got a prenatal client with pelvic pain which i can of course help with but who also has clinically isolated syndrome (similiar to MS) my worry is that when she does talk about her pain i won't have the same understanding of her own description of 'pain'.. example. in short, we do a gentle lateral stretch on the reformer and she'll say it hurts . im then unsure if its muscular or neuropathic
Heidi: most likely neuropathic in origin as this particular lateral stretch is involving both the central and peripheral nervous system without a lot of proprioception on the pelvis/spine. Of course the muscular component is there for sure as the nerve tissue is degenerated and the "tracking" of the nerves is causing pain response in the muscle. She might find it much more helpful, and with the desired effect, over the spine corrector or arc!
