The Bioneuro Therapy System Sigma Q (ΣQ®) Diagnostic Roller & The Pain Pathways

Diagnostic Roller & The Pain Pathways

The Bioneuro Therapy System Sigma Q (ΣQ®) Diagnostic Roller, is a very valuable Diagnostic tool it is used  to locate the areas of nerve dysfunction in the muscle groups of the body,  where for what ever reason the muscle group is not  firing, people call them” Hot spots,  trigger points, knots,”  what ever they are called the fact is that the Neuro messages /signals are not getting through and for muscles to function correctly, these messages need to get through.

These messengers or for their correct name  Neurotransmitters react to aid functions of muscle,  these are a type of chemical messenger which transmit signals across a chemical Synapse  (this is the Junctions between two nerve cells, such as a Neuromuscular junction, from one Motor neuron (or nerve cell to another nerve cell ) or another Motor neuron, or to a target neuron in the muscle cell, or gland cell.

When this process is disrupted and the signals do not get through, function, and ability of muscles to work  with pain free movement becomes difficult.

So how does the Roller do its job to such a degree ?

The answer It is all about targeting those NOCICEPTIVE PAIN  POINTS

We know

that Neuropathic pain is caused by damage to the neurons that are involved in the pain signalling pathways in the nervous system and nerves react to static when they are not firing correctly,

Nociceptors are the sensors of the Pain Pathway, these receptors are in every tissue of the body except the brain, when injury occurs Nociceptors are activated  and chemical are released such as  prostaglandins kinins and potassium ions , these then stimulate the Nociceptors,

Pain can persist even after these pain producing stimulus have been removed, because these chemicals linger and the Nociceptors do not adapt very quickly once activated.

Neuromodulation technique

This can cause prolonged muscle contraction muscle spasms even Ischaemia ( this is inadequate blood flow to muscles or organs.)

 

So by using  Nociception, to follow the Pain Pathway back, through the sensory nerve cells called Nociceptors, that in turn produce the signal that travels along a chain of nerve fibres via the spinal cord to the brain and the Nociceptors that are affecting  the nerves, that are creating the obstructions, which sense and respond to parts of the body which have suffered from damage.

With the aid of the Roller tool and the ability of the Bioneuro Sigma Q, we can find the exact location of the dysfunction created by the trauma pathology.

Runners Preparation for Marathon 2017

Runners Preparation for Marathon

Patient X attended my clinic for treatment, “Preparation Marathon for 2017.”

Week 1

Starting with full assessment of the muscular skeletal condition, then into preparation treatment with the use of Sports Massage Neuro Muscular Technics and Bioneuro Therapy Treatment.

Working on the feet aiding the motor neuron /nerve messengers to have greater ability of nerve function and blood flow to the feet.

This will open up nerve function and blood flow to all lower extremity muscles helping the muscles to function better.

Moving onto massaging the legs and Achilles Tendon area ,  applying  Neuromuscular Techniques combined with massage worked to deal aided the welfare of the calf area.

With a knee pathology present the use of MET’S (Muscle Energy Techniques ) to release shortened hamstrings from Weight Training session.

Whilst treating Patient x’s legs the Bioneuro Sigma Q was also applied to the Lower Back, this helped relieve those shortened/hyper-tonic muscles  from the (Dead lift weight training session ).

Massage and manipulation followed, Patient X felt rejuvenated ready for the next stage of training leaving  feeling  fitter, injury free and stronger to achieve the goal of that marathon next year ! .

Whilst treating Patient x’s legs the Bioneuro Sigma Q was also applied to the Lower Back, this helped relieve those shortened/hyper-tonic muscles from the (Dead lift weight training session ).

Report from Patient X

“Normally DOMS is quite prevalent on a Saturday after Thursday dead lifts. Not today though.  Hamstrings and lower back weren’t as tight as usual and my run this morning was much easier thanks to yesterday’s session.  

Good cool down after too so hopefully I won’t stiffen up later today. Ran my planned 10 miles at a steady pace fitting in the local Park Run midway through for good measure.  Knee was its usual aching niggle but that’s nothing new is it?

All in all it was made easier thanks to your treatment yesterday. Thank you.

Patient X”

This Weeks Tip from Get Fit Stay Fit Norfolk for Runners

“Running of any type calls for continues numerous  muscle actions . The greater the drawing together of these muscle groups the velocity generation from this action will create hyper-tonic muscles . All muscles in the body “Pull” and decreased circulation can be the result . Massage combined with Neuromuscular Therapy and Bioneuro Sigma Q  will enhance the runners general well being ,aid restoration and training ability.
