An Integrative Approach to Total Body Wellness

Plantar fasciitis is a pain in the heel. In fact, it is the most common type of heel pain, and it occurs when the flat tissue band that supports your arch and connects the heel to the toes, known as the plantar fascia, is strained. This can cause quite a few painful issues, and most suffering from it tend to want help dealing with the pain, and as quickly as possible. A range of therapy types are available, as you will see, including neuromuscular therapy and the MyoKinesthetic System offered at Rio Vista Wellness Center.

Many people who are suffering from pain and loss of range of motion today are looking for methods of healing that do not involve surgeries, complicated therapy, or pain medication. Nobody likes the idea of dulling their senses by continually taking pain meds to deal with their chronic pain. Fortunately, people today can find some good options for dealing with their pain in a healthy manner. One of the best ways to do this is using the MyoKinesthetic System, which is one of the options at the Rio Vista Wellness Center.  Who Created the MyoKinesthetic System This is a relatively new type of therapy. It was created in 1994 by Dr. Michael Uriarte. The chiropractor had an office with five massage therapists in it, and the doctor believed that there was a huge benefit to using soft tissue massage work in conjunction with chiropractic care. He developed a system that could be used by the therapists to help patients who were dealing with pain, tingling, numbness, and a loss in their range of motion.  What Does the MyoKinesthetic System Do? The goal of the system is to provide correction to the muscles and balance to the nervous system. By assessing the posture and talking with the patients about the problems they are suffering, it becomes possible to narrow down the source of the problem and the pain. The therapists can then work on those specific muscles. They will work on both sides of the body, even when the symptoms might only be on one side. This is to promote balance in the body.  What Can It Alleviate? You will find that the system has the potential to help people who are suffering from a range of problems. The system can help those who are dealing with a loss of a range of motion due to an injury or due to surgery. If they are undergoing the treatment after surgery, they will want to make sure they are cleared by their doctor to start therapy first.  The MyoKinesthetic System can help those who have neuropathy, chronic pain, unbalanced posture, altered muscle tone, carpal tunnel, headaches and migraines, and shoulder problems, such as frozen shoulder. It can also help those who are suffering from plantar fasciitis.  Should You Consider the MyoKinesthetic System?  If you have any range of motion, misaligned posture, pain, or a tingling or numb sensation in the body, and other treatments have not helped, it might be time to consider MyoKinesthetic System. I could be just what you need to improve your quality of life right now.  How Long Does It Take?  It is very important to realize that all patients are different. People have different issues and symptoms, and they may be suffering varying severities of these conditions. Therefore, it is impossible to determine the exact number of sessions it will take before someone starts to see real improvement. However, most patients do start to notice a change between the first and the third session. The sessions themselves tend to be very quick, and most are finished within half an hour. Again. It will depend on the person.  Now that you know more about the MyoKinesthetic System, you might want to discuss the option for this type of treatment for your own condition. It could make a big difference in how you feel.  certified myokisthetic practitioner
