Overview

Indy Myopain Relief Center focuses on using Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (MTPT) combined with other modalities.  Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a form of problem-solving massage therapy that incorporates safe movement techniques, along with pain neuroscience education.  The ultimate purpose is to reduce pain in all its forms and to restore full function.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy

One of the most common sources of pain is myofascial trigger points. These are spots in the muscle that hurt when pressed, make the muscle fibers shorter, and cause a phenomenon called referred pain. Referred pain means that a trigger point can make you feel different sensations, such as tingling, numbness, pain, dull aching or shooting pain, in another area that may be far away. This can confuse the clinician and make them think that the pain is coming from where it is felt, but most of the time the pain location is not the real problem. Also, clinicians may think that inflammation is often the cause of pain, but this is rarely true.

 

Our Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (MTPT) helps the fascia (the covering of the muscle) to move freely, stops the brain from sending signals that make the muscle contract, and releases the tight bands in the muscle. This immediately reduces the pain and makes the muscle normal again.

 

We also train the brain to recognize that the muscle is ready to function normally.

Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy Using PiezoWave 2t

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

The PiezoWave² MYACT is a US-approved system that uses low-energy pulses and massage to treat myofascial structures up to 40 mm deep. The PiezoWave² MyACT technology does not produce shockwaves, so it is ideal for physiotherapy. Users can choose between point-focused or linear focused therapy sources.

MyAct is a new method for precise and comprehensive treatment of myofascial pain syndrome. The linear therapy focus (46 mm x 18.5 mm x 4 mm) is good for treating pathologies along the muscle fibers or large tissue areas. Linear focused pressure waves are especially helpful for treating muscle injuries and knots. Point-focused therapy sources are useful for finding and treating trigger points and the related pain.

Frequency Specific MicroCurrent Injector by Mend Tech.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)

Frequency specific microcurrents also utilize exceedingly mild electrical current (around one millionth of an ampere, far less than a TENS unit). The thing that differentiates FSM is the use of two different channels and two different frequency strengths simultaneously addressing the condition (such as inflammation) on Channel A, and the specific tissue involved (such as the spinal cord) on channel B. Unlike a TENS unit, FMS changes the state of the tissue itself.

Scientists are not exactly sure how FSM changes tissue structures and creates healing. FSM does increase the production of ATP in injured tissues. (Adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP, is a molecule that carries energy within cells and is the major source of energy for all cellular reactions in the body.) Because treatment with FSM can increase ATP production by as much as 500 percent in damaged tissues, this may help with the recovery process.

Extreme Posture is Normal for Some People

Postural Analysis & Range of Motion

Posture is the attitude assumed by the body either with support during muscular inactivity, or the coordinated action of many muscles working to maintain stability. It forms an essential basis that is being adapted constantly.

What is good posture for one is not necessarily good posture for another. (Refer to above picture)

Poor posture can be bad for your health. Maintaining a posture that puts stress on a joint such as prolonged slouching (see image at R) or slumping over can:

  • Increase pressure on the spine, making it more prone to injury and degeneration.

  • Cause neck, shoulder, and back pain.

  • Decrease flexibility.

  • Affect how well joints move.

  • Affect balance and increase risk of falling.

  • Make it harder to digest food.

  • Induce breathing disorder and affect surrounding structures including the heart and phrenic nerve.

  • In women it can lead to imbalance in the core muscle leading to incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse.
