- Are you having muscular issues after a medical intervention?
- Do you want to avoid another surgery?
- Do you continually injure yourself and nothing makes it better?
- Are you fed up dealing with the symptoms and not the cause of the problem?
- Is the problem coming from somewhere else, but can't get it addressed?
What if I told you rehabilitation is just the beginning?
Picture this. You just graduated from physical therapy for a muscle injury, but you still don’t feel 100%. Now what? Do you ignore it or do you keep looking for other options? Surgeries and injuries are traumatic events, which directly affect muscle function. The joint pain has hopefully decreased after surgery and physical therapy, however that doesn't mean you have achieved 100% muscular function. This is why we designed The Muscular System Solution. Our 6 step proven process was created to catapult individuals after physical therapy to dig deeper into the sections of the muscular system that were compromised. The muscles that are still imbalanced can decrease the integrity of the joint. This can leave you vulnerable for re-injury, new injury, or surgery due to overcompensation.
The Signal to your muscles could be clogged
Based on how severe the injury or surgery was, you may have lost neuromuscular connection between the brain and the muscles. This means, you lost the ability to feel muscular sensation and/or control in the area of trauma. Imagine a partial vs. a fully clogged sink. The water represents a signal from the brain, the pipes represent the nerves, and the wastewater treatment plant is where the signal is converted into energy. When you have a partially clogged sink you turn the water on and the water is slowing trickling down the drain. The water is getting to the treatment plant, but on a delay. When you have a fully clogged sink the water isn't able to go down the drain at all.
A Partially Clogged Sink Example
A twisted ankle happens because the surrounding muscles aren’t strong enough to support it. It could take weeks to be able to apply pressure and return to daily activities. However, there could still be a problem. As you use the ankle you know it isn't able to perform like before the injury. The nerve signal is slowly being converted to energy like water slowly getting to the treatment plant to be converted to new water. Since it’s on a delay the signal isn’t able to optimally control the joint for daily activity. Bottom line, if the nerve signal is dampened directly affecting muscular contraction your joint isn’t 100%, even though the pain is gone.
A Clogged Sink Example
A joint replacement is major trauma on the body. A surgeon needs to cut through connective tissue (fascia), the covering that encases the joint (a joint capsule), bone and muscles to replace the joint. If muscles were cut that could cause a signal obstruction from the brain to the muscle, just like a clogged sink. After surgery the body has to reconfigure those muscle signals (along with joint motion and muscle strength). Each muscle fiber has its own signal to the brain, so if its signal is interrupted the brain can’t tell those specific muscles to generate energy for the joint. This is like water not reaching the treatment plant at all. This clogging can cause compensation in neighboring joints, unexplained pain in the newly replaced joint, and/ or uneven wear on the new joint leading to another replacement in the future. MSS takes a holistic approach to repairing the signal obstruction, by getting your joints back to optimal health.
Let MSS unclog the sink
Both scenarios have lost neuromuscular connection which leaves you vulnerable to joint compensation, another injury, or surgery due to the muscular imbalances. If you can't feel it, then you can't use it. Our 6 step solution will find the underlying issues and create a path to full recovery.
