Definition of "Neuro-Vegetative Conflict" or "Strife Syndrom".

It is an imbalance between the sympathetic system and the parasympathetic system, caused by an event, whether it is physical or psychological traumatic. Consequently, the two systems can become disorganized in hyper or hypo functions causing a deregulation of the target organs. This deregulation of the autonomic nervous system by one or other of the systems, or even both, leads to specific chronic pathologies.


The innovative approach to the treatment of the neuro-vegetative system:

This study on neuro-vegetative functions aims to understand and approach the chronic pathologies differently, which still remain a mystery for medicine.

“During 40 years of research, I have studied a multitude of clinical cases which have enabled me to consider a method of detection and precise protocols. "

Tests found in the literature such as dysautonomia, vagal states, neurovegetative dystonias, are symptomatic findings, but in no case do they include solutions based on the actual origin and their treatment.



The neuro-vegetative, sympathetic and parasympathetic functions are linked to a central functioning arising from the CNS, the brainstem, the bulbar protuberance, the thalamic and hypothalamic areas, the basal nuclei, etc.

It is to take into consideration their situations in a very specific dura-merian crossroads, that is to say the small circumference of the tent of the cerebellum, the basilar gutter and its fossa lined by the dura mater, the spheno- symphysis. basilar and the great circumference of the tent of the cerebellum.

The stresses exerted on the cerebral tissues will modify the electrochemical exchanges of the nerve pathways, their conductions and consequently of the target organs.


Symptoms of the "Strife Syndrom":

  • Cardiac: Extrasystoles, tachycardia, oppression, angina, arterial hypertension, palpitations, endothelial stress of the great vessels.

  • Pulmonary: Dyspnoea.

  • Digestive: Nausea, dyspepsia, vomiting, diarrhea.

  • Vasculo-cutaneous: Sensation of burning skin below, impression approaching skin paresthesia (effleurage burns below the skin).

  • Urological: Polyuria, tenesmus, incontinence regardless of the filling of the bladder, very clear urine.

  • Genital: Decreased libido (By imbalance with the parasympathetic).

  • Central:    
         - Thermoregulation: intense cold by vasoconstriction of the
          deep vascularization,     spasmodic tremors
         - Water balance: Thirst: Significant decrease in need
         -Transpiration: Decrease by vasculo-vasoconstriction
         - Sleep (sleep disorder): Intense fatigue, nycthemeral cycle
         - Satiety: Inappetence.

  • Impairment of the general state: Mal being indescribable, depressive state.

  • Mental impairment: Intellectual slump, demotivation.

  • Orthostatism : Instability in the standing position (drunkenness type), disappearing when walking.


Let us quote some objectives of osseopraxy:

• Chronic angina - Tonsillitis (neuro-vegetative pathways in C2-C3-C4)

• Spastic colon (splanchnic tract and mesenteric ganglia)

Anxiety attacks (by affections of mobility of the dura-merian membrane in the

hypothalamic sphere).

• Chronic cystitis (mobility restrictions of the umbilico-prevesical fascia and the

sacral neuro-vegetative).

• Liver dysfunction (some - by compressions of the right pneumogastric nerve)

• Diverticulosis (by neuro-vegetative affections of the intestinal muscles)

• Dyspnea (by disturbance of the phrenic nerve and costosomatic neurovegetative ganglia in Th3)

• Extrasystoles and cardiac arrhythmias (neuro-vegetative pathways of the upper and middle cervical gg and of the costo-thoracic gg in Th5 mainly).

• Depressed state, malaise , oppression, anxiety attacks (by central neuro-vegetative affection).

• Fatigue and chronic asthenia (by affections of mobility in Occ / C1 and C7 / D1_ sympathetic channels).

• Gastralgia, dysphagia (superior splanchnic route, celiac plexus, superior semilunar and mesenteric ganglia and the pneumo-gastric nerve).

• Impatience of the limbs (sacral neuromuscular networks and of the lower limbs)

• Intestines (bloating, spasms) irritable and spastic colon (through the splanchnic tract)

• Motion sickness (vascular spasms of the petrous artery and inner ear)

• Migraines (C1, occipital, sphenoid by dura-merian disorder).

• Chronic childhood ear infections (by sympathetic esophageal pathways and dura-meric tension imbalance).

• Paralysis of the VII a frigore (by restrictions of mobility of the cranial membranes

enclosing the VII)

• Fears, panic states (due to neuro-vegetative disorders following a history of

physical trauma)

• Pudendalgia (sacred tract in S4)

• Pygalgia (by dysfunction of the position of the femoral head and consequences on the

pyriform muscle).

• Chronic sinusitis (by putting dura-mériennes in tension on its periosteal inclusions

intra sinus)

• Sterilities (some of traumatic origin - Disruption of pituitary-hypothalamic feedback)

• Chronic irritative cough (lower cervical gg and C4 tracheal fascia)

• Vagal disorders (by neuro-vegetative compressions of the X in the exocranial processions)

• Vertigo (Ménières type - by restriction of mobility of the occipital membranes and

consequences on the vascularity and fluids of the inner ear.)


Thus, the osseopraxic method consists in releasing the mechanical and tissue stresses exerted on these neurological pathways knowing their paths near joints such as for example the costo-vertebral joints, the endo and exocranial passages, and all the passages giving pretext for compressions. relative.

This list is not exhaustive since other pathologies have been improved by this neuro-vegetative medicine.
