Vacuum cupping of the medial and lateral hamstrings with movement, to help with daily activities such as, sit to stand, walking, driving and to decrease neural tension in the posterior legs. The negative pressure of the vacuum cup helps to reduce fascial restrictions which will increase range of movement and increase blood flow to the region. #momentummuscletherapy #correctivetherapy #musculoskeletaltherapy #MST #myotherapy #rehabilitation #recovery #prehab #painfree #health #body #active #athlete #muscles #nerves #joints #goldcoast #clinic #fitness #functionalmovement #vacuumcupping #myofascialcupping #nomarkshere #legday #hamstrings #gym #semimembranosus #semitendinosus #bicepsfemoris

This tiny machine can make a world of difference. It allows the user to stimulate their vagus nerve and you can now have one of your very OWN! MMT is super stoked to now supply tVNS machines for purchase! But why? I hear you ask... Read below 👇🏽👂🏼⚡️👌🏽😊 . The vagus nerves (CN X) are the longest pair of the cranial nerves we have. They weave their way down from the brain, through the thorax (chest) to the abdomen, innervating many organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, spleen, liver, intestines) along the way. It is involved in regulating the sympathetic (SNS) and parasympathetic (PNS) feedback of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls homeostasis (balance) within the body eg. heartbeat, breathing, alertness, digestion, urination and controlling inflammation etc. . Stimulation of the Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve (tVNS) can help to improve: Digestion (HCl acid and gastrin release) Balance and Co-ordination Depression and Anxiety Memory and Concentration Inflammation Crohn's Disease Migraines and Headaches Motor system rehabilitation Autoimmune diseases (MS, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis) Chronic pain Skin conditions (cystic acne, psoriasis, eczema) . tVNS is also offered at MMT as part of an integrative treatment session. . tVNS machines will be $85 (+ postage) and a percentage can be claimed back with private health insurance. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Always love when the pregnant
Always love when the pregnant ladies come in for a treatment! 💛 . Common symptoms during and after pregnancy are: Fatigue Aching back, pelvis or hips Leg cramps Swollen feet Sciatica Headaches Sleeping issues . There are some old wives tales about certain points that “cannot be palpated” during pregnancy as they may induce labour. There is NO scientific evidence to support this, so please do not be concerned about being treated! Good practitioners will know your health history and provide appropriate treatments within their scope of practice. . We take into account the extra levels of relaxin pregnancy produces to prepare the body for labour, how much time is spent in the same position during the treatment and making sure there’s no pressure placed on the vena cava while supine. . Treat yo’self gurl! 👌🏽😉 .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Accessory work is one of the
Accessory work is one of the most important pieces to the muscle maintenance, biomechanic health and rehabilitation puzzle that a lot of people miss. I hear mainly because they “don’t have time”, “forgot” or “can’t be bothered” 👀😱 . BUT, all the accessory work is equally as important as the training session or eating well. These smaller muscle groups are often the ones which stabilise the body for bigger movements, e.g Gluteus medius during hip flexion stabilising the pelvis during running. . Accessory work can be: strengthening the smaller muscle groups, neural flossing, stretching, rolling out etc and one of the easiest ways to incorporate accessory work into our maintenance schedule is by using bands. . They’re cheap to buy, come different widths which equals different resistances making them great for any level of fitness or rehabilitation, light to carry making them easy to travel with and can be used for strengthening, stretching and neural flossing! . If you’re finding your rehabilitation or performance is plateauing, check what accessory work you can incorporate for that region and get on it! .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Taking tough to a new level!
Taking tough to a new level! 👨🏻‍⚕️👀 . #Repost @medicaltalks ・・・ The Surgeon who operated on himself! On the morning of 29 April 1961, Rogozov experienced general weakness, nausea, and moderate fever, and later pain in the lower right portion of the abdomen. All possible conservative treatment measures did not help. By 30 April signs of localised peritonitis became apparent, and his condition worsened considerably by the evening. Mirny, the nearest Soviet research station, was more than 1,600 km from Novolazarevskaya. Antarctic research stations of other countries did not have an aircraft. Severe blizzard conditions prevented aircraft landing in any case. Rogozov had no option but to perform the operation on himself. The operation started at about 22:00 on 30 April with the help of a driver and meteorologist, who were providing instruments and holding a mirror to observe areas not directly visible, while Rogozov was in a semi-reclining position, half-turned to his left side. A solution of 0.5% novocaine was used for local anaesthesia of the abdominal wall. Rogozov made a 10–12 cm incision and proceeded to expose the appendix. General weakness and nausea developed about 30–40 minutes after the start of the operation, so that short pauses for rest were repeatedly needed after that. According to his report the appendix was found to have a 2x2 cm perforation at its base. Antibiotics were administered directly into the peritoneal cavity. By about midnight the operation was complete. After a brief period of postoperative weakness, the signs of peritonitis disappeared. Rogozov's temperature returned to normal after five days, and the stitches were removed seven days after the operation. He resumed his regular duties in about two weeks. . #momentummuscletherapy #musculoskeletaltherapy #MST #myotherapy #therapy #surgery #muscles #mobility #posture #painfree #prehab #rehabilitation #recovery #reflex #flexibility #active #athlete #neuroscience #fitness #functionalmovement #operation #clinic #goldcoast #medicine #heath #body

@momentummuscletherapy photo Mobilisation of the first rib
Mobilisation of the first rib to improve neck rotation and reduce pressure on the brachial plexus. . The brachial plexus is the collective nerve roots which extend outwards from C5-T1, they form all the neural pathways for the shoulder, arm and hand. . When the first rib is slightly elevated or hypomobile, it can compress the brachial plexus causing symptoms like numbness, pins and needles, burning or sharp pain into any region the compressed nerve innovates. It can also reduce neck range of movement or contribute to headaches. . An elevated or hypomobile first rib can be caused by postural imbalances e.g. forward head position, carrying or lifting heavy weight, by injury, biomechanics or sleeping in an awkward position. . By mobilising the first rib, it can reduce or eliminate symptoms experienced. This technique is used at MMT as part of an integrative treatment. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Vacuum cupping to the forearm
Vacuum cupping to the forearm to improve range of movement. . Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily made of collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates muscles and internal organs. Fascia is a supportive and moveable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through and between muscles. . Fascia can become thickened and inflexible reducing muscle or joint’s range of movement. These restrictions can be reduced by soft tissue manipulation, rolling out, stretching and cupping allowing the fascia to glide and become mobile again. . Vacuum cupping is used at MMT in combination with other techniques for an integrative treatment. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Knee reconstructions can
Knee reconstructions can sometimes be a long and slow process. From the recovery after surgery, to the rehabilitation to regain strength and functional movement. . Knee surgeries have varied recovery times (2 weeks to 6+ months) depending on what type of surgery is conducted e.g. arthroscopy, ACL replacement or meniscus repair. . Alongside rehabilitation programs, recovery can be supported by directly activating the motor control system. Motor control is the ability of a person to initiate and direct muscle function and specific voluntary physical movements. These can be broken into two groups: Fine motor control for precise movements such as handwriting, and gross motor control which involve groups of muscles like waving. . Activation of the motor control system can be done by stimulation of the Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve (tVNS), this helps with correct muscle firing sequences when done in combination with rehabilitation exercises. Electrotherapeutic Dry Needling (EMDN) is able to activate specific muscle recruitment or reduce inflammation and pain depending on needle placement. Direct nerve manipulation manually or stimulation by electropen can also assist with recruitment or reducing pain. . All of these techniques are often integrated during normal treatments at MMT. .
