Manual movement therapy (MMT):
MMT assesses the nervous system and the neuro-connectivity of the motor and sensory nerve pathways to reduce pain, improve stability and enhance performance. This therapy involves identifying movements that trigger pain or restrictions by analyzing functional movement patterns, gait analysis and muscle test assessments.
I guide you to assess fundamental movement patterns such as breathing and various kinetic chains that could be dysfunctional and see if we can create change.
This framework speeds up your recovery time after an injury and helps prevent further injury.
The principles of online sessions and clinic treatments are the same. Online sessions involve identifying movements that trigger pain or restrictions. Movement stimulates the nervous system, so I guide you through a range of movement assessments and then use NeuroKinetic therapy to assess where the pain or restrictions are coming from. I then guide you through your treatment with direction on what to release and what to strengthen. These are the corrective exercises that will be part of your ongoing rehabilitation.
The sessions are 30 minutes long and cost $57.
Neurokinetic therapy :
This method is used to establish the neurological cause of movement pain and dysfunction, and the activation and release of structural muscles to allow for healing and improved performance. It is useful for any client suffering pain or mobility problems and for rehabilitation; and is also a powerful tool for creating strength and function.
NeuroKinetic therapy is non-invasive and does not require any clothing removal.
Using specialized massage techniques are designed to work on the superficial and deeper layers of soft tissue such as muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Sessions will focus on specific areas or on resolving specific problems. This has a therapeutic effect on chronic muscular pain and movement dysfunction. Scarring and adhesions are treated effectively with a deep tissue massage with the goal to alleviate muscle tension and restore function to the affected areas.
Trigger Point Dry Needling:
TDN is a treatment technique that uses small filament type needles to release tight muscles with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction.
The aim is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. TDN helps to reduce pressure on the nerve by releasing muscle shortening.
It is now well researched that the "twitch response" in the muscle during dry needling is associated with the muscle relaxing and stopping the pull on adjacent areas.
