Muscle System Specialist
What is a Certified Muscle System Specialist?
We define “Pain”, and other sensations you do not like, through what is called Information Set Theory.
The Information Set Theory of Pain states “all physical sensation, including the choice to use the word “pain”, is a conclusion by the brain constituted by the quality and quantity of information flowing within, and throughout, the body control system at any given moment.”
That’s a lot to take in right? It’s like the entire infrastructure of Amazon are delivering packages to the wrong addresses and it doesn’t seem to be correcting on it’s own. The result would be a lot of angry customers. How would you solve the problem? Go to each individual customer for the rest of the company’s tenor and exchange their packages for the correct one? Or would you do a system wide analysis of how the problem got their in the first place to make sure it doesn’t happen again?
This is where the localized vs. systematized approaches differ when it comes to HOW we gather the information and execute a plan. Let’s change that!
Changing the information set may change the entire outcome of the system where the brain no longer concludes “pain”! It concludes more range of motion, more strength, more endurance, and no pain. That’s a great exchange, isn’t it?
How do we do this?
We create a fully custom mobility solution to explore through your medical history, physical history, personal needs and goals for you based on your stubborn pain points, chronic discomforts, and daily routine.
- What are your hobbies?
- What is your medical history?
- What injuries have you had? Over your entire lifetime? (This is huge!)
- Surgeries? (It’s a controlled injury…again, this is huge!)
- Diseases? (Can affect your systems ability to communicate information)
- How do you move?
- Does it hurt when you move?
- Where does it hurt, when does it hurt, and how long does it hurt?
- What repetitive movement have you done over the years?
- With work?
- With exercises?
- With daily habits?
From here, we get to work! Creating exercises, based on your unique needs, can change that information control set. We have a completely unique process for assessing and approaching your unique information control profile.
You won’t find any of this in a textbook or on the internet.
MUSCLE SYSTEM SPECIALIST VS. PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Certified Muscle System Specialist = High Level Problem Solving
- A Certified Muscle System Specialist takes a whole body view understanding of the way your body’s systems interact with and influence one another. Both separately and collectively. For instance, If you have pain (symptom) in a particular area, such as your neck or back, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the symptom is the problem or the source like most people tend to believe.
- We can’t chase your symptoms if we expose other problems your system can’t handle.
- Symptoms have blind spots and they need to be exposed.
- A Certified Muscle System Specialist understands that a system has to communicate and if there’s communication problem, something will show up. This systems-based approach evaluates how your muscle system is communicating. We focus on improving the quality of the muscle system once these communication/interaction issues have been identified and help reduce or even eliminate pain.
- We build a crime scene like environment where assumptions are eliminated and every decision is defended before executing. No guessing!
- A Certified Muscle System Specialist customizes exercises based on your unique situation.
- Not a copy and paste method.
- History Matters!
- Everyone has a unique experience with their pain. There needs to be a unique experience for their exercises.
- A Certified Muscle System Specialist does not require insurance pre-approval.
This is not Physical Therapy !
- A physical therapist addresses a localized symptom with localized treatments. For example, if you have neck pain, you must have a problem with your neck, so that is the part of the body a physical therapist will treat.
- There’s no need to look anywhere else.
- Symptoms are only treated. Not problems.
- Lots of assumptions are made.
- A physical therapist exercise selection is based on a protocol.
- Again, protocols are highly assumptive.
- Protocols can have huge blind spots.
- If the protocol doesn’t work, usually another protocol is implanted in hopes it would work.
- A physical therapist often requires pre-approval from your insurance company for physical therapy sessions, and insurance companies may limit the number of sessions.
- A physical therapist can often only provide services for the number of sessions the insurance company approves.
Other typical muscular treatment modalities
There are so many techniques and modalities that claim to eradicate an individual’s problems. There’s chiropractors, acupuncture, reflexology, massage, trigger point, ultrasound, myofascial release just to name a few that are very common.
A certified Muscle System Specialist will use a specific approach and a unique goal that can be invaluable to the recipient which can stand alone in its course of action to improve someone’s performance. There is a bias to raising awareness of this approach that has come about due to gaps in existing treatments where the results aren’t successful in regards to achieving muscle pain relief, mobility, muscle tightness or overall physical performance.
We solve problems others have failed to solve!
It’s important to observe how the body reacts to an unstable surface. It might tighten up for restriction (ex. Standing on ice without skates) of movement to gain more support for further control of the position. The body may use muscle tightness which contributes to muscle pain as a method of support and control to benefit us by observing that instability is an internal problem at any joint.
Like any form of treatment such as the ones previously mentioned, A certified Muscle System Specialist can provide an alternative. The success with this unique method may come down to the specific requirements of the individual for what they need or goals to address their muscular, structural, chronic, acute issues, pain or imbalances.
If you are unsure whether your problem is more than a muscular one then you would be advised to seek normal medical attention.
