Trigenics works by combining 3 treatment techniques which are applied at the same time for an effect on the nervous system which is much greater than if you only applied one. The 3 components are: Resistive exercise neurology, Muscle nerve-sensor stimulation, and Bio-feedback breathing
During a Trigenics treatment, the doctor or therapist applies treatment to the muscle nerve-sensors while the patient performs specific resisted movement and breathing exercises.
Trigenics is unique in that it is able to help identify these abnormal muscle signalling patterns using specific and simple muscle strength and length testing procedures.
When tendons, muscle or ligaments suffer damage, stress or injury their nerve sensors stop sending proper messages to the brain causing the sensation of pain. While the altered signals may not always be immediately noticeable, the muscles and tendons experience a state of dysfunction, leading to weakness, tightness and abnormal muscle pull patterns in the movement chain causing imbalances and dysfunctional joint motion. This results in chronic pain and injury or decreased training and athletic performance.
