Importance of Cervical Muscles

We have proposed a new medical concept named “cervical neuro-muscular syndrome (CNMS)”. CNMS causes whole-body indefinite symptoms in the whole body as follows:

  1. Headache
  2. Vertigo or dizziness
  3. Palpitation
  4. Chest tightness
  5. Vision loss, dazzling, dry eyes
  6. Dry mouth
  7. Nausea or appetite loss
  8. Gastrointestinal symptoms
    (stomachache, diarrhea, and constipation)
  9. Hyperhidrosis
  10. Cold sense or poor circulation
  11. Unstable blood pressure
  12. Unknown fever
  13. Sleeping disorder
  14. General malaise or fatigue
  15. Depression
  16. Distraction or obsession
  17. Irritability
  18. Lack of durability
  19. Back pain
  20. Arthralgia

Why CNMS causes whole-body symptoms?

Regarding the mechanism underlying involvement of CNMS in whole-body symptoms, we propose a possible involvement of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for regulating unconscious actions, consists of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. Because of its anatomical location, the parasympathetic system is referred to as having craniosacral outflow, while the sympathetic nervous system has thoracolumbar outflow. The parasympathetic system predominates during rest conditions, controlling miosis, lacrimation, salivation, pulsation, sweating, digestion, defecation, and peripheral circulation. Hence, whole-body indefinite symptoms might possibly be related to dysfunction of the parasympathetic nerve that passes through the cervical muscles.

Treatment of CNMS leads to improvement of whole-body indefinite symptoms

There are a considerable number of patients with indefinite symptoms in the whole body worldwide. The patients usually visit and consult physicians specializing in their respective disorders. However, most of them seldom improve because the etiology underlying their variable symptoms remains unclarified or undetermined. Finally, the symptoms may finally be diagnosed to be psychological and not being attributed to any organic dysfunction, and the patients may be introduced to psychiatrists. Unfortunately, the majority of the patients are resistant to the interventions through drugs or consultation for the psychological aspects.

Unlike conventional symptom-modifying and makeshift treatments such as pain-killers, the treatment of CNMS in the TNC helps to remove stiffness or spasms of cervical muscles, which is the major cause of the whole-body indefinite symptoms. Since this is a radical treatment that modulates the tone and stiffness of cervical muscles, this has produced very successful results, which have not been achieved by other institutions.

If you have indefinite symptoms with cervical disorders, it is possible that these are due to CNMS.

All doctors at TNC are alumni of the Medical Department of the University of Tokyo and representative medical specialists in Japan.

To achieve the ultimate aim of TNC, that is to cure patients whom other institutions could not, our specialists: neurosurgeons, neurophysicians, orthopaedic surgeons, and gynecologists, examine each patient through significant communication to identify the etiology. Regarding the treatment, unlike conventional makeshift treatments, such as symptom-modifying drugs, we perform a radical intervention of each disorder; e.g., removal of stiffness or spasms of the cervical muscles, which is the major cause of whole-body indefinite symptoms.

Please check the medical interview sheets  below of 30 indefinite symptoms for diagnosis of CNMS severity. If you have 4 or more symptoms out of these 30, you may need treatment.
