Developed by Dr. Oolo Austin in the 1990s, Trigenics is a unique treatment technique developed specifically to treat frozen shoulders. Trigenics can even help restore shoulder movement in patients who have undergone other treatments without relief.
A number of other treatments for frozen shoulder exist, including traditional physical therapy, active release, and surgery. While some people have gotten some degree of relief after one or more of these treatment options, many have continued to suffer from pain and lack of mobility. None of them have achieved significant results after a single visit.
To date, thousands of people have experienced increased mobility and relief from the pain of frozen shoulders, often after just one treatment, without surgery.
Frozen shoulder is a condition that is not well understood. As a result, many patients suffer for months or years before they are even able to get a proper diagnosis. When this happens, the muscles begin to atrophy, making exercise ineffective at best, and increasing the potential for further damage.
Prior to treatment, a series of tests are done to evaluate muscle length and strength. The results of these tests are used to identify the area that needs to be treated, and which muscles need to be strengthened and/or lengthened.
Treatment with Trigenics begins with techniques designed to improve shoulder function with neurokinetic exercises to strengthen and lengthen the muscles in and around the shoulder. In most cases, this is sufficient to increase range of motion by approximately 10-15 degrees.
After the initial release technique, a Trigenics practitioner will use functional muscle neurology treatment to rewire the nerve impulses the control the rotator cuff. This further improves range of motion and strength in the shoulder. In many cases, patients enjoy full range of motion within a few minutes to a few hours after the procedure.
This unique treatment combines resistive exercise and neuromuscular stimulation with specific breathing techniques. This is the first treatment method to combine neurology and physical therapy in a way that works on muscles, brain, and nervous system simultaneously.
When an injury occurs, pain can limit movement. Over time, not only do the muscles begin to atrophy, but the nerves can start to misfire and eventually forget how to communicate. As a result, the muscles begin to shorten and atrophy in a process known as neurological inhibition. Because of this, the effectiveness of traditional physical therapy and exercise are limited. Trigenics is based on the idea that complete healing cannot occur until the nervous system is restored to normal function.
Today, approximately 2,000 practitioners around the world offer the procedure, and thousands have experienced relief after going through the procedure. The principles behind Trigenics are no longer limited to treating shoulder conditions. It has also been used to treat many other conditions, including migraines, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia, among many others. Some practitioners also provide the procedure to athletes to help improve their performance and reduce the risk of injury.
If you suffer from certain autoimmune conditions, nerve lesions, blood clots, unexplained calf pain that could be the result of an undiagnosed blood clot, bone fracture, untreated shoulder dislocation, or certain other conditions, Trigenics may not be right for you. There are some minor risks involved with Trigenics, including sprains, strains, subluxation, and bruising.
