What is Naprapathic Medicine? With Dr. Nuzzo

Some Naprapathic Manual Medicine “Fast Facts”

What Do Naprapathic Doctors Do?

Doctors of Naprapathic Medicine often use a three-fold strategy in the Naprapathic treatment of connective tissue disorders.

Naprapathic Manual Medicine: Involves hands-on (gentle) connective tissue manipulation to the spine, joints and articulations of the body.

Nutritional Counseling: Recommendations for holistic dietary changes, food supplementation (as through the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals) to assist the body in achieving optimal health.

Therapeutic Modalities: The use of the effective properties of physical measures of heat, cold, light, water, radiant energy, electricity, sound, air and assistive devices for the purpose of preventing, correcting or alleviating a physical disability. Modalities may include ultrasound, electric stimulation and/or photobiostimulation (also known as low-level laser or cold laser therapy).

Growing Industry

Integrative, holistic and complementary alternative medicine and the treatment of Facia and connective tissue is a growing trend in the US, gaining more and more momentum daily.

It is even being incorporated into mainstream medical facilities and taught at major universities. Naprapathy currently represents an under-served niche market.
