Causes & Symptoms of Musculoskeletal Pain
Muscle tissue can be damaged due to daily activities, trauma such as an auto accident, jerky movements, falls, sprains, discolorations, direct blows to the muscle, postural strain, repetitive movements, overuse and/or immobilization. Changes in posture or poor body mechanics may bring spinal problems and muscle shortening. Many of these problems may lead to spinal surgeries.
The Muscle Therapy Clinic integrated program consists of the following techniques/ modalities:
- Soft tissue manipulation techniques
- Myofascial release techniques
- Myoskeletal techniques
- Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitaioin (PNF)
- Antagonist Contract (AC) stretch
- Contract relax Antagonist Contract (CRAC) stretch
- Kinesio tape
- Home Stretching protocol
Myofascial Release Technique
is designed to eliminate restrictions that develop in the fascia (broad, thin sheathes of connective tissue that surround muscles, bones and organs).
Propionceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
stretches are used to lengthen muscles allowing the joints to move more freely. We use several stretching methods during a session. Passive (or static) stretching, reciprocal inhibition reflex to reflex muscle and rounds of contracting and relaxing a target muscle.
Home Stretching Protocol
Our clinic provides individual and personal stretching programs for the patient to practice at home as part of their muscle rehabilitation and healing process.
Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT)
is a type of bodywork which blends the principles of structural integration to relieve chronic pain and to reduce the potential for the emergence of pain which could become chronic over time.
was invented over 2 decades ago as a replacement for sports wraps. This elastic tape not only physically supports muscles during activity, it also lifts the skin away from the muscle tissue so that blood and other bodily fluids can move more freely thereby speeding recovery. KT can improve ROM, strength while reducing pain and inflammation. Our clinic uses sweat proof, water resistant tape. KTA.kinesiotaping.com
