ithout question the main cause of elite athletes not attaining their goals is injuries.  Debilitating injury to muscles or tendons being the culprit. Much has been discovered in recent years relating to the imbalance mechanisms of aberrant and imbalanced pull pattern muscule function. (Janda, Lewit, Leibenson, et al, etc.) Creating an afferent barrage for a neurosummation effect using the Trigenics multimodal procedures provides an advanced neurologically-based  assessment system and a neurologically enhanced treatment system to correct functional motor control imbalances for rapid repair and prevention of injuries as well as augmentation of training outcome.

Injury Development Formula:   

NEUROKINETIC CONTROL  IMBALANCE +  INTENSE MUSCULAR LOAD (TRAINING) =  INJURY,  DAMAGE and COMPETITIVE LOSS

THE PROBLEM:  UNDETECTED AND UNCORRECTED SENSORIMOTOR DEREGULATION AND MOTOR CONTROL IMBALANCE.

Mechanoreceptors in muscles, which monitor changes in muscular length-tension relationships stop functioning properly when muscles are overly stressed or injured. Signals to the lower brain are disrupted and it is thought that the brain responsively sends either too many or too few motor signals downward. Muscles receiving these signals are then either inhibited or over-facilitated causing weakness or shortness which disrupts the balance of pull patterns and movement forces leading to injuries.

This is THE FUNCTIONAL TRAUMA CYCLE.

The Solution: CORRECTION OF ABBERRENT SENSORIMOTOR AND NEUROMOTOR CONTROL AND NORMALIZATION OF FUNCTIONAL MUSCLE NEUROLOGY.

A specialized myoneural assessment for neurological inhibition or over facilitation can first be done by way of mapping and correlating specific orthopedic muscular-break strength testing with specific muscular length assessment procedures. Monitoring and correcting these imbalances is critical to keeping the athlete injury free. It also enables their trainer to be able to properly train their clients maximally for optimum results without fear of injuries occurring.

Once imbalances are noted, the Trigenics® “functional muscle neurology”® assessment, treatment and training system can be used to intercept the trauma cycle early to prevent further functional impairment and optimize neuromotor control. Trigenics treatment is basically a functional sensorimotor correction system which uses augmented muscle neurology to reroute and reorganize efferent motor control from the spinal cord and brain.

Historically, Trigenics was the first treatment to utilize the principle of therapeutic “neurosummation”® to create an afferent barrage by way of direct stimulative treatment being applied to muscles and soft tissues while the subject performs resisted exercise movements.
