Trigenics® is a soft-tissue manual treatment system. It is a neuromuscular assessment, treatment, and muscle retraining system. As a function of aging, or perhaps as a result of an injury, neurological muscular imbalances can be present in a person’s body whereby the nervous system isn’t sending proper signals to the muscles. This can result in lasting pain and disability. Trigenics® is a manual treatment system that addresses and corrects these neuromuscular imbalances.


If you suffer from adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder, please go to our sister site www.frozenshoulderclinic.com. You can watch patient testimonial videos as well as learn more about the OAT Procedure to fix frozen shoulder. You can also request a free consultation to speak with an educational director to get personalized answers to your specific questions.


Simply put, if you have some kind of neuromuscular imbalance (often the root cause of pain, immobility, and disability) Trigenics® treatments restore the normal communication between the nervous system and your muscles. If you have muscles that are really tight. This means that they are receiving too many signals. Trigenics® lengthens those muscles. If you have muscles that are not firing properly or aren’t receiving the proper signals, those muscles are functionally weak. Trigenics® strengthens those muscles.


The Arthrostim and the Vibracussor are optional instruments that aid a practitioner in performing Trigenics® treatments. The instruments enhance mechanoreceptor stimulation. They can also alleviate  muscle strain in a practitioner’s hands when treating many patients a day.


No, the instruments are entirely optional. In fact, we highly recommend that when a practitioner is first learning Trigenics® procedures that they just use their hands. This is because there is a fair bit of palpation and finesse skills that need to be learned before moving on to equipment.


The gloves make Trigenics® treatments more effective. They enhance mechanoreceptor distortion by decreasing slide variance. The masks are for patient-practitioner hygienic purposes. If a practitioner and patient are in close quarters with each other, the masks prevent saliva and other fluids from being transferred.
