Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) can be used for both chronic and acute soft tissue disorders in the field of sports medicine. Latest results prove shockwave efficiency in muscle strain healing, dramatically reduces healing and recovery interval and allows faster comeback to full sports endurance. During ESWT, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects such as neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up. Stimulation of these biological mechanisms through ESWT creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved.
ESWT can be used to treat:
- Acute muscle strain healing
- Muscle regeneration support
- Acute muscle spasm
- Jumper´s knee
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder tendonitis
- Groin pain
- Achilles tendon pain
Unique Laser Therapy
The Weber Multi laser has a two-fold effect: a pain-free stimulation of deep tissue with with the biological effects of laser light. In unique laser therapy, the so-called laser needles are used for pain-free application and placed on the skin or used together in special applicators for the treatment of larger surfaces. During local pain therapy, the lasers can be combined in an applicator so that the pain area can be irradiated with a high intensity.
Red, infrared, green, and blue lasers can be used together for the different penetration depths and the various effects in the tissue. The highly concentrated laser light enters the tissue and leads to bio-stimulating and reparative effects without any side effects.
Pain management laser therapy leads to an optimal regeneration effect on the mitochondrial level, so the reduction of pain is only one aspect. Furthermore it will lead to sustainable regeneration of the diseased area.
Kinesis Rehabilitation Protocols
The Kinesis One machine uses cables and weight stacks to help achieve a full range of motion. Its unique design provides a zero impact workout, suitable for all body types and all levels of exercise readiness. The design allows for free movement, including 360 degrees, and even distribution of resistance. It doesn’t require any time-consuming setup prior to use which allows the user to start right in with their exercise regimen. Kinesis machines are specifically designed to exercise the body in a way that is most comfortable for the individual working out. They are designed to work with your body, not against it.
Unique Iso-Kinetic Rehabilitation and Testing
TEKS ISO-MED is a multi-functional ISO-Kinetic rehabilitation testing system with exercise protocol. It provides rehabilitation professionals around the world with ideal ISO-Kinetic testing, monitoring, and rehabilitating equipment to regenerate injured muscle tissue and effectively improve performance.
The rehabilitative aspect of resistance training movement will aid in the healing process of connective tissue. This treatment is used only if that movement generates sufficiently-controlled stress which promotes correct alignment of collagen fibers and not the continual breakdown of fibers as they are laid down. Iso-Kinetic rehabilitation will result in a smaller but stronger scar and reduce the incidence of unwanted adhesions occurring. Movement will also promote the release of synovial fluid in the joint thus decreasing the chance of adhesions within the joint and that condition known as joint Gumming. The benefits of hydraulic resistance training for safe injury rehabilitation have been known and utilized for some time.
The accommodating nature of hydraulic resistance allows the body’s own pain/reflex feedback mechanism to control the amount of stress placed on healing structures.
Hydraulics removes the end point loading which is associated with anti-gravity resistance mechanisms. Where there is an impending directional change there is a moment in which the weight is decelerated, held isometrically, then re-accelerated eccentrically. This point quite often coincides with the mechanical disadvantage and if movement becomes ballistic in nature then the deceleration forces are transferred onto the ligaments which control range of motion. Because hydraulic resistance is dependent on movement or resistance, at the end point there is no movement, therefore no resistance, just smooth deceleration and smooth acceleration.
Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
Preventing injuries before they happen.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a 10-part examination used by specially-trained, certified accelerated physical therapists to assess an athlete or worker’s overall mobility, flexibility and stability. FMS involves a hands-on evaluation to create a snapshot of a patient’s potential for injury. The FMS also allows a therapist to develop an individualized treatment plan, including corrective exercises.
Typically lasting about 15 minutes, the FMS consists of these movements, each with its own performance score:
- Overhead Squat
- Hurdle Step
- Inline Lunge
- Shoulder Mobility
- Active Straight Leg Raise
- Trunk Stability
- Push-Up and Rotary Stability
In addition, three general movements are also performed to rule out dysfunction of the shoulder and spine. The FMS has been proven to:
- Identify risk of acute orthopedic injuries (ACL tears, rotator cuff tears, disc herniation) and chronic condition (arthritis, tendonitis)
- Reduce injury rates and improve function in athletes and workers of all ages
- Enhance performance and fitness levels
Vibra-Core Therapy/Training (Whole Body Vibration)
In whole body vibration (WBV), the entire body is exposed to vibration, as opposed to local vibration (Biomechanical Stimulation, BMS), where an isolated muscle or muscle group is stimulated by the use of a vibration device. WBV is implemented through the use of a vibrating platform on which static poses are held or dynamic exercises can be performed depending on the type and force of the machine. The vibrations generated by motors underneath the platform are transmitted to the person on the machine.
- Natural Healing Response
- Reduces Pain and Stiffness
- Improves Cellular Oxygen Circulation
- Decreases Cortisol (Stress hormone)
- Increases Serotonin
- Improves Strength and Performance, Energy and Endurance and Flexibility and Agility
- Reduces Fat and Cellulite
- Reduces Fatigue
- Lymphatic Drainage
- and much more…
WBV helps improve body balance and is effective and efficient for those who cannot exercise due to physical problems or disabilities as well as for trained athletes. In a 10-minute session and in a floor space of only 3 square feet, users will exercise and stimulate their muscles easily and quickly without stress to bones and ligaments. The body experiences the effect of regular aerobic exercises through vibration.
Increase muscle strength and endurance VibaCore increases strength and stamina by stimulating fast twitch muscle fibers. For athletes who need high power, as in running, jumping, and throwing, it is very critical to maintain the weight and performance of fast twitch muscle fiber. VibaCore whole body vibration machines also help improve muscular endurance by stimulating Human Growth Hormone (HGH) secretion to improve performance of slow twitch muscle fibers.
Get Back To The Activities You Love SonicWaveFitness Exercise can also help trim recovery time from injuries, getting you back to the activities you love sooner and with reduced stress to your body when you are unable to exercise in the traditional manner. Whole Body Vibration exercise can benefit persons of all fitness levels from professional athletes to seniors with disabilities.
How to avoid sport injuries
Most of the sports injuries occur by accident. They include a twisted ankle, a wrong landing on the foot, a knockdown, being stepped on by another player, running into someone or even someone running into you. There are different possible ways how you can get a sports injury, always depending from the type of sport you are playing. Some simple things can help you protect yourself while playing sports. Follow these suggestions and reduce your possibilities of having a sports injury:
- Wear appropriate sports uniforms and gears – helmets, knee pads, appropriate footwear,
- Warm up before the game – make sure to take some time before the game for stretching the muscles. With a good warm up before the game, you will play better but also reduce the possibilities of having a sport injury
- Train regularly – without good and regular training, you won’t be able to play sports, especially if you are playing professional sport. However, even if you are playing just for fun, whenever you have free time to do so, you should create a schedule and train and play regularly.
- Cool down – continue stretching for a while even after the game has ended.
