Do you want to fight chronic pain, or maybe you have suffered an injury that contributed to the development of a motor organ dysfunction?
The best solution is to find and remove the cause of the ailments, which will improve the quality of everyday life and regain and improve the previous physical fitness of the place. The broadly understood rehabilitation in Bio Life Medicine is a range of the most modern therapeutic methods selected individually to the patient’s needs.
What we treat:
Osteopathic diagnosis and treatment of the spine – it is an osteopathic therapy. It is based on a holistic approach to the problem of spine dysfunction. The analysis of the patient’s problem takes into account the disorder of the myofascial, articular and visceral systems. The physiotherapist uses techniques such as:
Myofascial relaxation (MR) – One of the newest therapeutic methods in the treatment of soft tissue. The purpose of myofascial release, called myofascial release, is to remove tissue restrictions in the body.
In myofascial relaxation, we do not focus on the site of pain, but on disorders in the fascial system. The basis of this therapy is palpation and manual techniques performed according to the patient’s clinical condition. Myofascial relaxation is one of the safer techniques that ensures the subtlety of working with the patient and allows for the ongoing monitoring of the patient’s nervous system reactions. Myofascial relaxation can be successfully used in acute conditions and in patients with high pain and pressure sensitivity of tissues.
FDM – Fascial Dystortion Model – It is one of the newest therapeutic models, the creator of the American osteopath, Dr. Stephan Typaldos. FDM has its own therapeutic and diagnostic concept in disorders of the fascial system. The techniques that are performed in the model often lead to a great improvement or complete removal of disorders. Dr. Typaldos observed that patients with different diagnoses use the same gestures and words when describing their ailments. On this basis, he concluded that the cause of this phenomenon is six different distortions of the fascia, differing from each other. We distinguish distortions such as:
Active relaxation techniques–
The task of the technique is to eliminate the tension created within soft tissues, which include, among others adhesions, connective tissue adhesions, excessive muscle tension. The above technique is often combined with the MET and MR techniques.
We can distinguish three types of active relaxation techniques:
Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) – The techniques are known for their use in osteopathy, orthopedics and chiropractic. During the therapy, the patient takes an active part in eliminating disorders in soft tissues. By exerting adequate resistance to prevent movement in the joint, triggering reflex mechanisms. As a result, there is a reduction in tension within a muscle or a group of muscles and their fascia.
Deep tissue massage – It is one of the methods of therapy that focuses on restoring the proper tone of deep tissues. Removal of any pain, improvement of flexibility, flexibility and restoration of the proper mobility of tissues can be achieved by the use of relaxation, stretching or removal of adhesions. An inseparable element of deep tissue massage is the functional assessment of the patient, the assessment of the myofascial system and the use of an appropriate technique whose time, strength and direction are determined by the feedback from the patient’s body. The patient undergoing the procedure actively participates in the therapy, performs (at the therapist’s recommendation) appropriate movements that increase the effect of tissue relaxation.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) – The therapeutic method uses a specially designed tool made of surgical steel. During IASTM Therapy, the tool resonates and provides sensory information to the therapist. This allows the therapist to accurately diagnose and effectively treat areas that show signs of soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
