Your body knows how to heal itself, though sometimes it has to be shown the optimal way. Activating your body’s parasympathetic system enhances the activity of your healing processes. Movement is a huge part of healing, but some therapy forces movements that the body is guarding against, which makes it guard more. Total Motion Release is a new technique that accelerates creating new, pain free movement by using more of the motions you are good at – things the body wants to do. This “good movement” allows your body to bring itself back into balance. Total Motion can be used to speed up results from manual therapies, or as a substitute for those that are especially sensitive or averse to manual therapy treatments.
Our Total Motion Release Technique takes an nontraditional yet effective approach to Physical Therapy. It allows the body to naturally realign and heal, which proves to be more effective than traditional methods. The Total Motion Release Technique provides instant results and relief to your aches and pains. Once you’ve grasped the concept, you have a lifetime tool to help treat your pains and discomforts.
When you have pain in your right shoulder it makes sense to treat your right shoulder, correct? With Total Motion we make this statement incorrect. Instead of treating motions that cause pain in the aching right shoulder, Total Motion uses a little known secret of treating pain free motions in the left shoulder, or another part of your body that already moves well! This causes a re-aligning of both shoulders and alleviates your pain.
You will be taught how to use easy pain free movements in order to restore balance to your body and release unwanted tension. With these methods you will be able to ‘fix yourself’ on the days you are not with us.
Total Motion Release Technique (TMR) is used at Central Park Physical Therapy to enhance any manual technique. So, how effective is it? A New York physical therapist who applies its principles will see results up to seven times faster. With TMR, 100 percent of the body is used instead of just the affected area. Lower extremities can be used to fix upper extremities, and the right side of the body can be used to fix the left side. It’s a radical approach to pain.
TMR is an innovative, patient-centered approach that can be helpful in treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal dysfunction, such as stiffness, restrictions in motion of joints and weakness. It releases restrictions that typically contribute to:
- Degenerative discs
- Muscle strains
- Ligament sprains
- Neck and back pain
The Advantages of TMR
One of the main advantages of TMR over traditional therapy approaches is that it teaches you how to fix yourself, no matter where the pain is. This therapy looks at movement patterns to determine where restrictions are, and it uses good movement patterns to improve faulty ones. The bottom line is that you’re only using comfortable motions instead of painful ones. No equipment is needed. You can apply the motion again and again to make your pain go away. It puts you in control of the pain. You can learn TMR from a physical therapist or even group sessions.
TMR allows the body to re-align and heal naturally. It provides almost immediate relief to those nagging pains and aches. It’s a lifetime tool that can be used again and again.
