What is Trigenics?

Trigenics is a non-invasive, drug-free neuromuscular assessment and treatment system that combines manual muscle testing and stimulation with proprioceptive feedback. Treatment focuses on the interaction between the nervous system and the muscles. Its foundation is the idea that the brain and nervous system control all movement and that muscle dysfunction is often the result of a breakdown in communication between the nervous system and the muscles. Trigenics combines manual therapy, exercise, and neurological techniques to improve this communication and restore muscle function. During a Trigenics session, a trained practitioner will assess your muscle function by testing your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. They will then use a combination of muscle stimulation and proprioceptive feedback to help your muscles work more efficiently and effectively.

The Science Behind Trigenics

Trigenics is based on the principles of neuroplasticity, which is the brain's ability to change and adapt in response to new experiences. Trigenics aims to reprogram the brain's motor control centers to improve movement patterns and reduce pain by stimulating specific sensory receptors in the muscles and joints.

During a Trigenics treatment, the therapist uses manual techniques, such as muscle manipulation, joint mobilization, and specific exercises and stretches to activate the sensory receptors in the muscles and joints. This sensory input is then processed by the brain, resulting in:

  • Improved muscle activation
  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased pain

Trigenics also incorporates principles of musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology. Trigenics aims to improve physical function and reduce pain by targeting specific muscles and joints by addressing underlying structural imbalances.

During a Trigenics treatment, the therapist may use any of the following techniques to address areas of tension and restriction in the muscles and joints:

  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Joint mobilization

Trigenics also emphasizes the importance of proper movement patterns and posture to maintain optimal physical function and reduce the risk of injury. The therapist may provide specific exercises and stretches to help you maintain proper alignment and movement patterns.

Trigenics Treatment Techniques

Before starting the Trigenics treatment, your therapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify the underlying cause of your condition. This assessment may include:

  • A physical examination
  • A medical history review
  • Various diagnostic tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans

Manual muscle therapy involves a combination of myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and joint mobilization techniques. During this phase of the treatment, your therapist will use their hands to apply pressure to specific areas of your body, helping to release tension and improve mobility.

They may also use various tools, such as foam rollers or massage balls, to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. The neurological stimulation component of Trigenics involves using electrical stimulation to activate the nervous system. This technique helps to improve muscle activation, reduce pain, and promote healing. To deliver this treatment, your therapist may use various electrical stimulation devices, such as TENS units or microcurrent machines.

Finally, functional movement training involves exercises and movements that mimic real-world activities. This helps improve your overall strength, flexibility, and coordination, allowing you to perform daily activities more efficiently.

Conditions Treated with Trigenics

Here are some of the conditions that can be treated with Trigenics:

Pain Management

Trigenics can effectively treat chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and back pain. By reprogramming the nervous system, Trigenics can help reduce pain and improve mobility.

Sports Injuries

Trigenics can also treat sports injuries like sprains, strains, and muscle tears. By combining manual therapy with exercise, Trigenics can help speed up the healing process and reduce re-injury risk.

Neurological Disorders

Treatment can address various neurological disorders such as:

  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease

By reprogramming the nervous system, Trigenics can help improve motor function and reduce spasticity.

Benefits of Trigenics

Trigenics is a non-invasive, holistic approach to treating pain, injuries, and other physical conditions. By combining manual therapy, exercise, and neurological techniques, Trigenics can help you achieve optimal health and wellness. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from Trigenics:

  • If you're struggling with limited mobility or stiffness, Trigenics can help through a series of targeted exercises and manual therapy techniques to improve your range of motion
  • By targeting the root cause of your pain, whether chronic or acute, Trigenics can help reduce inflammation and promote healing
  • By improving your range of motion, reducing pain and inflammation, and enhancing your overall physical function, Trigenics can optimize your athletic performance

Is Trigenics Right for You?

If you are experiencing pain or limited mobility due to an injury, chronic condition, or other musculoskeletal issue, Trigenics may be a viable option for you. However, it is essential to note that Trigenics is not a one-size-fits-all solution and may not be the right choice for everyone. Here are some factors to consider when deciding if Trigenics is suitable for you:

  • If you have a condition that requires immediate medical attention or surgery, Trigenics may not be the best option for you
  • Trigenics requires active participation and commitment from the patient to achieve optimal results; if your goal is to mask your symptoms with medication or a temporary solution simply, Trigenics may not be the right choice for you
  • If your goal is to improve your overall quality of life and regain the ability to perform daily activities without pain or limitations, Trigenics may be an excellent option for you
  • If you have a sedentary lifestyle or are not willing to make changes to your daily routine, Trigenics may not be the best option for you
  • If you are willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes and commit to the treatment plan, Trigenics can be a highly effective way to reduce pain and improve function
