Who can benefit from Trigenics?
Trigenics has been found to benefit a wide assortment of patients. Trigenics is primarily used in all phases of rehabilitation as well as for maintenance care and athletic performance enhancement. The aim of Trigenics® is to remove restrictive barriers of movement in the body and to reset, restore and optimize normal myoneural physiology. This is accomplished by decreasing protective muscle spasm, fascial tension, joint hypomobility, pain, and swelling and increasing circulation, strength and length.
Trigenics is proving to be revolutionary in the athletic world for performance enhancement. Because Trigenics essentially resets the muscles gamma bias it can have an immediate strengthening or lengthening effect. Athletic performance is, therefore, significantly enhanced without drugs.
Patients with sports injuries also respond incredibly well to Trigenics. Common injuries such as sprained ankles, hamstring or calf strains, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, jumpers knee, throwers shoulder, ligament sprains, pelvic or sacroiliac strains, hip pointers, rotator cuff injuries, lumbago, sciatica, wry neck, golfers and tennis elbow injuries can be treated effectively. Trigenics range-of-motion, strengthening and lengthening exercises are also employed post treatment.
Trigenics also has remarkably beneficial applications in the rehabilitation field. Unlike other manual therapies, special applications of Trigenics can be applied during the immediate acute post-injury stage.
Usually, when elderly patients are exposed to Trigenics, they quickly accept it and benefit greatly because it is gentle and highly effective. Trigenics may be able to reduce and relieve several chronic dysfunctions that have been preventing the patient from achieving a normal functional range of motion.
These patients are often surprised and excited with the results, which effectively improve the quality of their life. They find themselves moving much more easily with less or no discomfort and often performing movements that they had assumed they had lost forever. These may include tying shoes, looking both ways when driving, riding a bike, walking, swimming, and other activities of daily living.
Osteoporosis is a consideration with this patient population. Trigenics is the treatment of choice in these cases as it is safe and non-traumatic. The elderly generally tolerate Trigenics very well. Arthritic conditions often develop (hips, knees etc.) because of biomechanical imbalances arising from old sprain/strain injuries. Most elderly patients feel that their pains are simply a factor of age and that not much can be done for them. This is not the case and they are to be informed accordingly. Trigenics is extremely effective for the elderly.
Infants and young children with congenital hip dysplasia, torticollis, brachial plexus injuries (Erb's or mixed palsy), and colicky babies have been treated very successfully with Trigenics. The Trigenist initially moves the infants. body part for them. This, in turn, causes them to initiate movement themselves to assist in the procedure. Clinically, this technique is much more effective than simply stretching or massaging the muscles and is also effective when manipulation has failed. The child will likely be more cooperative because the treatment is more comfortable than stretching.
Patients who have difficulty breathing can benefit from Trigenics. Many respiratory patients are taught Autogenic breathing and Autogenic Meditation for energy conservation and to improve their respiratory potential.
However, restricted ribs, spine, pelvis, and hypertonic muscles may prevent these patients from achieving full functional benefit. By treating the restrictions in the spine, pelvis, ribs, and hypertonic muscles (i.e., rhomboids, sacrospinalis, diaphragm, psoas, quadratus lumborum, and intercostal muscles etc.) the patient may be able to expand the rib cage more fully and with greater ease and may be able to perform breathing exercises to a greater potential and with more comfort.
Patients with anxiety
Patients suffering from anxiety related disorders respond very well to Trigenics. From a neurological perspective, Trigenics applied to areas of chronic muscular hypertonicity has a remarkably sedative effect and provides a generalized calming of the patient. Post-Trigenics endorphin release is also accompanied by a characteristic sense of euphoria, which tends to alleviate anxiety.
Another benefit that some patients experience is an actual emotional outpouring called a Trigenics neuromyo-emotional response where emotional blocks that have been stored in the muscle knots are released. This facilitates some patients to laugh, cry or just become extremely calm. Most Trigenics patients, therefore, experience a great sense of stress reduction and generalized relaxation following a typical 10- minute treatment. Fibromyalgia patients also respond extremely well to Trigenics.
Trigenics has been used successfully in treating individuals with hypertonicity secondary to both upper and lower motor neuron lesions. These patients include those with trigeminal neuralgia, traumatic brain injury, cerebral vascular accident, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injures. Areas of the body paralyzed or afflicted with severe hypotonia or atonia (i.e., flaccid arm and leg tone) will obviously not be responsive to Trigenics. If an individual has flaccid patterns in one area of the body and spastic patterns in another region, the hypertonic or spastic region would be amenable to treatment using Trigenics. Trigenics with these patients may be used to reset gamma bias and thereby optimize muscle tone, improve postural positioning, and increase mobility and functional movement.
Pre and Post Surgery Patients
Trigenics is effective in regaining mobility and function following most orthopedic surgeries. Even in cases where a number of years have passed and range of motion has been lost, Trigenics is still often effective in increasing joint range of motion.
