During Lock down lot’s of events were held online rather than physically and I felt it was better to use the time wisely and continue studying, I believe we all need to keep on moving forward and gaining knowledge to help our patients and keep up to date with what is happening.
To that end I have been in the happy position as a member, to be able to attend quite a few of The Royal Society of Medicine’s on line events, these give me invaluable access to learn from the best, to listen to some great speakers on some brilliant topics.
Under normal circumstances it would be a trip into London and a stay overnight , but this way it has meant I can enjoy the event, get to ask questions and have plenty of time to study the subject, a win, win situation.
The Shoulder is where the humerus (upper arm bone) meets the scapula (shoulder blade) It is a shallow joint to allow more flexibility of movement, but it also means it can be more prone to injury and dislocation along with nerve entrapment .
This is a joint injury that can be ,especially, devastating and totally debilitating, it can easily cause distribution to other structural and biological functions around it .
This is a major area that I have found deeply interesting, the discussions revolved around non operative reconstruction ,the need to give a good prospective evaluation of the trauma pathology .
Examining how Neurovascular Injuries and Muscle Paralysis, can be treated with constructive intervention to aid the quality of life for the patient .
These are two of the major areas, that are of interest to me.
Neurovascular Injuries are damage to major blood vessels in the body with further complications, with the injury being the loss of sensation, tingling or pins and needles, being apparent to the patient .
Muscle Paralysis in simple terms means a loss of control and strength ability ,this causes the nerve communication ability from the Spinal Column to be compromised , there are four types of paralysis.
The Shoulder joint holds four major nerves , the origin of all these nerves originate from the Cervical Vertebrae C5-C7 .they are the:
Motor Neurons and Neuropeptides carry nerve messages to help innervate muscles to work correctly, any injury or trauma will impair this function .
Treating patients with Bioneuro Sigma Q technology , can help restore function, the technology works with a variable pulse through the muscles, fascia, thus enabling it to interact with the nerve pathways, and neuromuscular junctions. .
I have found that the Bioneuro Sigma Q combined with ,Neuromuscular Manipulation techniques, Correct Rehabilitation and Recovery Exercises, when appropriate, to help the patient to achieved Full Pain Free movement, can work quicker than other interventions, that I have used in the past and I have tried various interventions, along with massage over the past 30 years of my being a Therapist.
