Manual medicine is the use of palpation and operator directed techniques to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Manual medicine is based, in part, on the belief that man is a self-regulating being and that the body, when in the normal structural relationship, is capable of self-healing and defense against disease. “The goal of manipulation is to restore maximal pain-free movement of the musculoskeletal system in postural balance”.
A manual medicine diagnosis is made using a comprehensive history, detailed and specific physical examination including Osteopathic, orthopedic, neurologic, rheumatologic and Chiropractic exams, appropriate radiologic studies and the specific laying on of hands to palpate musculoskeletal parameters including but not limited to the asymmetry of related musculoskeletal components, range of motion abnormalities of mobility, tissue texture changes, circulation of fluids and energy.
DRY NEEDLING & ELECTROLYSIS
Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point needling and sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS), which is the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including the myofascial pain syndromes.
Electrolysis is the use of direct current during the procedure of dry needling.
Dynamic neuromuscular stabilization is a pure Czech technique in which we use our own treatment in rehabilitating the patient.
DYNAMIC MSK SONOGRAPHY (RUSI)
The use of sonograph “ultrasound” to diagnose the MSK.
The osteopathic approach is a wide treatment that can create very effective results that regular treatment and exercises won’t reach.
