Therapy


Techniques Used

Here at The Body Project we use a number of different types of techniques to aid in addressing the origin of the pain instead of just treating the symptom.

Do you or anyone you know suffer from?

– Neck and back pain
– Shoulder pain
– Knee pain
– Sciatica
– TMJ
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Tendonitis
– Bursitis
– Frozen shoulder

Are you frustrated with poor results with your current treatment? What are you currently doing?

– Taking pain medication
– Contemplating surgery
– Living with the pain

What is the Solution?

IASTM, DMS, and Cold Laser

Instrument Assisted SoftTissue Mobilization (IASTM)

What is IASTM?

Instruments are used to enhance the ability to detect adhesions, scar tissue, or soft tissue restrictions in the affected areas. These instruments are used to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies the areas of restriction.

Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments are used to break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function.


Exactly what is meant by a soft tissue restriction?

Soft tissue restrictions are due to collagen fibers in muscles, ligaments and fascia that are unable to respond to stretching and normal “give” when moving. Typical trouble spots include the neck, back, shoulder, or knee. The fibers are described as being abnormally “cross linked” and often contain fibrotic nodules. Restrictive tissue any where in the body is abnormal and cause not onlylocal pain but can be related to the cause of distant pain seemingly unrelated parts of thebody.

What are the benefits?

– Decreases overall time of treatment
– Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
– Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
– Resolves chronic conditions thought to bepermanent

What kind of conditions can be treated?

Patients with a soft tissue disorder. Especially fascial adhesions and restrictions, acute and chronic conditions. Cervical sprain/strain (neckpain), Lumbar sprain/strain (back pain), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, Rotator Cuff Tendinitis (should pain), knee pain, Achilles Tendinitis,Fibromyalgia, Scar Tissue, Trigger Finger, Shin Splints, surgical scars and more.

How many treatments are needed?

Everyone responds differently. 95% of our clients report significant improvement after the first treatment. Most conditions resolve in 4-7 treatments. Treatment should be scheduled 1-2 times a week with 2-3 days between sessions. Older patients with complications and chronic conditions tend to take a little longer.

How does it work?

The IASTM tools make it easy to locate soft tissue adhesions and restrictions. When you feel a vibration or “roughness” you have found the target (problem) tissue. The tool is then used to break up fascial restrictions and scar tissue restoring normal function. This initiates reabsorption or fibrotic or excessive scar tissue and triggers healing activities.





Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS)

What exactly is the DMS?

The Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) is avibrational massage tool that delivers a deep vibration that in skilled hands can quickly and comfortably dissolve stubborn trigger points. The DMS is an FDA approved medical device which has been subject to clinical trials, and has been proven effective in those trials.

The DMS was designed by a doctor foruse with his own patients. The DMS has been designed and fine-tuned to provide the ultimate clinical effectiveness in settings including physical therapy offices,chiropractic clinics, hospital rehabilitation centers, sport trainers’ facilities, and clinical massage therapists’ clinics.

The unmatched rate of vibration that the DMS provides delivers the following benefits to clients:
-Increased circulation
-Reduced pain
-Faster post-injuryrehabilitation
-Increase lymphatic flow
-The resolution of muscular scar tissue
-Reduced lactic acid build up tissue regeneration;
-Soft & active tissuerelease

Cold Laser

Pain Management Treatment With Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on people who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.

How Cold Lasers Work

Cold lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician and are often the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the cold laser unit.
During this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skins layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). This light has the ability to penetrate 2 to 5 centimeters below the skin at 90mw and 830 nm.

Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow.

When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.

Types of Conditions Treated by Cold Lasers at The Body Project

Cold laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by cold laser therapy. Some of conditions that may typically be treated by cold laser therapy include:

• Arthritis pain
• Back pain
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Fibromyalgia pain
• Knee pain
• Neck pain
• Tendonitis

Effectiveness of Cold Laser Therapy

For years, physicians have been using cold laser therapy on patients who are seeking effective, alternative methods for pain relief. Since 1967 there have been over 2,500 clinical studies published worldwide. Many of these studies are double-blinded, placebo-controlled and have demonstrated cold laser therapy to be a proven method for pain relief.




Corrective Exercise

   

Corrective exercise is an approach where an assessment is used to determine specific weaknesses and/or limitations of the individual. We are evaluating balance or harmony within the body. This assessment drives the programming process, where a systematic and progressive approach is used to reduce the likelihood of injury and improve performance. Essentially we are looking for what muscles are tight and what muscles are weak.

Using that definition, what could constitute corrective exercise? Would foam rolling, mobility, static stretching or core training exercises be included? If that was found to be a weakness or limitation, absolutely! Any component of an exercise program can be considered “corrective” – whether it’s foam rolling, mobility, strength training, stretching, endurance training, it all depends on the person in front of you and how you piece their program together that determines whether a program is “corrective” or not. In reality, at its root, corrective exercise is really just smart training! Along those same lines, corrective exercise goes way deeper than just getting somebody healthy: Corrective exercise is all about improving performance. At the Body Project are goal is helping people look better, feel better and move better while being pain free.
