How cool is this picture of the calcaneal (Achilles) tendon! This photo was taken just before surgery to reattach the tendon to the bone. . As the strongest tendon in the body, people report hearing a very loud bang (as well as feeling it), when the tendon ruptures! 😳 . The calcaneal tendon is the collective attachment point of the plantaris, soleus and gastrocnemius muscles to the calcaneus (heel) bone. . Photo credit: @themedicalmentors . At MMT we treat a range of ankle, knee and leg conditions using an integrative treatment plan specific to the individual, based on examination findings and symptom presentation. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Taping to provide lumbar
Taping to provide lumbar support while still being able to move freely! . A bad tackle during a rugby league game caused back pain and tension during range of movement, daily activities, driving, sitting and sleeping for this patient. . After gentle joint mobilisation and electrotherapeutic dry needling to the thoracic and lumbar erector muscles, the treatment finished with taping to support the lumbar region. . Taping is used as part of an integrative treatment plan at MMT. .

Getting race ready @toughmudderaustralia . Vacuum cupping to the medial and lateral gastrocnemius to help reduce any fascial adhesions which may be inhibiting range of movement. This is normally performed with the restricted movements as a precursor to joint mobilisation and nerve manipulation where the structural changes can be made for long lasting results. . Vacuum cupping also helps improve blood flow to the area. . All treatments at MMT are specific to the individual with a focus on improving the functions of nerve, joints, muscles and biomechanics based on examination findings and symptom presentation. .

Quick interview with one of my awesome clients Jase about daily living with diabetes. Jase has been able to integrate management of Type 2 diabetes with his lifestyle by making a few small changes. He’s created the right balance for himself while still being able to enjoy a beer and the odd meat pie 😉 .

Who’s participating in any of the Gold Coast Marathon events this year?! @gcmarathon There’s the 5.7km Fun Run, SCU 10km Run, Asics Half Marathon or the main event, the 42km Full Marathon! . Here’s Electrotherapeutic Dry Needling (EMDN) to the medial and lateral gastrocnemius (calf muscles) to help reduce tension felt while running. . 5 weeks out from the event is the perfect time to start addressing and eliminating any final niggles that may cause an issue. . EMDN involves an electrical current flowing between two filiform needles. The electrical current pulse causes a contraction which can reduce tension and pain, increase nerve function and increase the healing process. . EMDN can also be used to help tendons, ligaments or a fat pad. . MMT uses EMDN as part of an integrative treatment plan. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Scoliosis of the spine. .
Scoliosis of the spine. . This abnormal lateral curvature of the spine is a condition called Scoliosis. . In scoliosis, the patient’s spine is curved from side to side or front to back, and may also be rotated. . On an x-ray, the spine of an individual with a typical scoliosis may look more like an "S" or a "C" than a straight line. It is quite common in young individuals and is often idiopathic and asymptomatic. In some cases, however, it is the result of underlying structural or neurological abnormalities. . The majority of cases are idiopathic, meaning there’s no apparent underlying cause. Other reasons for scoliosis are broad, including congenital (from birth), neuromuscular scoliosis seen in spina bifida and patients with cerebral palsy, degenerative scoliosis due to a trauma, major previous back surgery, or osteoporosis. . Surgical correction is done in curvatures of over 45 degrees and typically involves the use of modern instrumentation systems in which hooks and screws are applied to the spine to anchor long rods, ensuring the correction of the curvature and its stability over time. . #momentummuscletherapy #musculoskeletaltherapy #MST #clinicalmyotherapy #therapy #body #health #surgery #scoliosis #holistichealth #spine #back #fitness #functionalmovement #active #athlete #goldcoast #clinic #rehabilitation #recovery #pehab #posture #painfree #neuroscience #repost @medicaltalks

@momentummuscletherapy photo Is back pain affecting your
Is back pain affecting your daily living activities? Your work, home, social or sporting life? Are you bracing yourself in weird positions so you can turn, sit, stand or lie down? . Chronic and acute back pain is something that is treated daily at MMT. Some techniques we use to reduce or eliminate the pain are: joint mobilisation and correction, nerve manipulation and correction, taping for stability and postural awareness, Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), and electrotherapeutic dry needling (EMDN). . Here is EMDN to the lumbar erectors. They help to extend, rotate, laterally flex and stabilise the lower back. EMDN involves an electrical current flowing between two filiform needles. The electrical pulse causes a contraction which can reduce tension and pain, increase nerve function and increase the healing process. . All treatments at MMT are specific to the individual with a focus on improving the functions of nerve, joints, muscles and biomechanics based on examination findings and symptom presentation. . MMT uses EMDN as part of an integrative treatment. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Lots of shoulder issues in
Lots of shoulder issues in lately. Anything from referred pain down the arm, referred pain from the neck and reduced ranges of movement, all affecting daily living activities, sleep, work, comfort levels and training. . Here is Electrotherapeutic Dry Needling (EMDN) to the supraspinatus tendon, infraspinatus tendon and the biceps brachii tendon. . A tendon is a direct form of attachment for the muscle to the bone. Tendinosis can contribute to chronic localised pain, pain with movement and reduced ranges of movement. . EMDN is being used to reduce pain, improve blood circulation, decrease inflammation and mechanical irritation of the tendon sheath and peritenon respectively, and illicit a faster healing response within the shoulder complex. EMDN was used after joint mobilisation and nerve manipulation techniques were applied to the cervical, thoracic and shoulder regions. . All treatments at MMT are specific to the individual with a focus on improving the functions of nerve, joints, muscles and biomechanics based on examination findings and symptom presentation. .

@momentummuscletherapy photo Have you heard of frozen
Have you heard of frozen shoulder? . Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis and characterised by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. . Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly,l in three stages. Each stage can last a number of months and the condition normally resolves in 1-3 years. . Freezing stage. Any movement of your shoulder causes pain, and your shoulder's range of motion starts to become limited. Frozen stage. Pain may begin to diminish during this stage. However, your shoulder becomes stiffer, and using it becomes more difficult. Thawing stage. The range of motion in your shoulder begins to improve. . It's unusual for frozen shoulder to recur in the same shoulder, but some people can develop it in the opposite shoulder. . All treatments at MMT are specific to the individual with a focus on improving the functions of nerve, joints, muscles and biomechanics based on examination findings and symptom presentation. .
