1) Orthopedic Rehabilitation—Principles of Pain Alleviation
Our modern world is saturated with information, with infinite demands, pressures and burdens.
We all work a great deal, and we try to meet our expectations to develop academically, to meet our families’ needs and, once in a while, to have some time for our hobbies and peace of mind.
This pressure creates an excessive burden on our bodies, and is expressed in changes in our capacity to function and our muscles’ range of motion. Today, there is a great deal of research that shows how tension and stress affect our bodies. Our brain has developed over millions of years of evolution to deal with physical “threats,” and it interprets emotional or mental “threats” in the same fashion. The brain can prepare the body for war, for defense, or for escape. The changes the brain makes are totally physical, whether it’s muscle cramps, momentarily increased hearing, or the transfer of blood from less essential systems such as the stomach to the muscle systems, among other changes.
From this we understand that physical and mental/emotional tensions create the same bodily reactions and can create the same pain.
90% of our bodies’ pain comes from our muscles and the muscle fascia, that soft and transparent tissue connected to every muscle in our body, which is also largely responsible for the functioning of the body’s ability to move.
Modern medicine is increasingly recognizing that the fascia is the source of most pain, and that treatment should focus on releasing and moving that fascia as part of the body’s movement system.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation treats exactly this issue and utilizes the most advanced techniques and tools known today:
– Trigger point therapy
– Kinsiotex therapy
– Posture-Movement diagnosis
The results of Orthopedic Rehabilitation are quick and alleviate a wide range of types of pain, such as:
– Knee pain, headaches, toothaches, neck pains, whiplash, frozen shoulder and shoulder pain in general, tennis elbow, golf elbow, TCS, back pain, disk protrusion, disk rupture, sciatica, anxieties and fears, foot pain, and more…
Treatment is based on a comprehensive and accurate diagnosis, which includes understanding the pressures that the patient experiences in their lives, their lifestyle, and the development of a treatment plan whose purpose is to reduce the pain by returning the organ or muscles in question to full movement.
During the treatment, the patient learns the principles of correct posture, learns personally prescribed exercises, and learns to manage the pain cycle in such a way that after only a number of treatments, the patient understands his body sufficiently so that he can manage his day-to-day life without pain.
2) Prevention, dissipation, and dealing with pain
Dealing with pain is an exhausting and tiring process that demands tremendous amounts of energy and creates feelings of fatigue, anxiety, lassitude and sometimes all of these together.
It doesn’t matter whether the pain was caused by injury, trauma, an illness or any other cause. Pain triggers bodily processes which cause muscles to contract, chemical changes in the brain, and the movement of different fluids, which cause tiredness, illness, agitation of trigger points and additional physiological and emotional processes.
Treatment whose aim is to prevent and dissipate pain requires the correct approach to the entire bodily and emotional system in order to provide the patient with the necessary tools to deal with the pain, to reduce it and to build a basis for responding to the pain so that the treatment will remain in effect and last.
Every person who comes for Orthopedic Rehabilitation treatment, whether he is an athlete, a farmer, or a software engineer, is unique. My wealth of experience with cyclists, for instance, has taught me that there is no bicycle rider whose situation is the same as another’s, whether it be his physiology, his emotional processes, or his genetics. Therefore, it doesn’t matter whether the patient complains of a headache or pains in the palms, or an inflamed ligament. The treatment must be focused on the entire person as a holistic and unique system.
Every Orthopedic Rehabilitation treatment begins with a thorough personal diagnosis in order to understand and get to know the person in front of me, and understand the system of pressures and emotions in their life and the way in which they manage them.
Only afterwards do I move on to the various muscle and movement examinations in order to discover restrictions in the range of muscle movement, and to the treatment itself, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, which includes trigger neutralization, fascia release, and providing tools for the patient to deal with and dissipate their pain.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation uses the most advanced tools in the world, such as trigger point therapy and Kinsiotext therapy, and is a central part of the Integrative Medicine approach.
