Overall, results with Trigenics® in both injury rehabilitation and athletic therapy have been quite remarkable. One explanation for this may be related to the "direct myoneural relationships that exist between higher sensorimotor function and the proprio-mechanoreceptors." It is suspected that the seemingly superior results attained with Trigenics® are due to the non-linear cascade of neurophysiological reactions relating to these relationships, which inevitably occur when cumulative treatment is applied.
Much like joint manipulation, the concept of Trigenics® treatment methodology is quite simple, whereas it is not nearly as simple to properly apply. The Trigenics® Practitioner or "Trigenist"! must become very familiar with all the subtle angles and directions of movement performed by the patient, as well as how much resistive pressure to simultaneously apply during the procedure. They must be well versed enough in muscle kinesiology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology to understand and properly apply the principles. Also, the Trigenist must be able to properly guide and train their patients in learning how to be an active participant in the treatment in order to achieve the greatest results.
Their proprioceptive palpation skills must be specially developed to be able to delicately follow the muscular relaxation response, and subsequently to facilitate a furthering of this response through specific application of Trigenics®. Summarily, as with all involved techniques, the learning of Trigenics® requires considerable time spent on studying and practicing the procedures. The Trigenics® Practitioner will notice how positive outcomes occur much faster, and how minimal time is required to achieve these results. Also, if the Trigenist practices joint manipulation, they will notice that the need for manipulation of the affected joints will be significantly reduced.
