Sue Leger, the director of CenterIMT Atlanta in Fayetteville, Georgia is asserting that a combination of hands-on therapy with laser healing, electrical stimulus, diet and exercise has the ability to “reverse severe spinal cord injuries.” This combination therapy is called Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) and was developed by Dr. Sharon Giammatteo.
Leger has a doctorate in spinal cord injuries from Westbrook University and has applied it to helping “no hope” SCI patients recover. She maintains that dozens of patients in this category were able to regain control over their bodily functions as well as walk and drive in many cases.
IMT works to address both pain and disability by looking for their cause, then practitioners use their hands to “feel the body’s circadian biologic rhythms and movements…” By circadian rhythm, they are referring to the body’s natural cycles such as the heart’s beat.
After finding the cause, they proceeded to work towards healing the client through the address of everything from circulation and psychological problems to physiological systems such as hormones and sleep cycles. IMT is an interesting and holistic approach to pain management and spinal cord healing.
If you or anyone you know has had experience with this therapy, we’d love to hear from you!
