Shin Splints treated with Shockwave Therapy

If you have shin splints, you might notice tenderness, soreness or pain along the inner side of your shinbone and mild swelling in your lower leg. At first, the pain might stop when you stop exercising. Eventually, however, the pain can be continuous and might progress to a stress reaction or stress fracture.

Scenar Therapy provides signicant relief and accelerates your return to normal activity for
SPRAINS AND STRAINS

With the arrival of spring fitness is on the mind of many. Although physical activity is essential for good health, sport injuries are common and can affect almost any part of the body, including muscles, joints, bones and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments). Sprains and strains are the most frequent type of sports injury. Symptoms of a sprain or a strain can include tenderness around a joint or in a muscle, pain, bruising and swelling. You cannot usually put weight on the injury and use it normally. Often pain is accompanied by cramping and muscle spasm. What is the difference between a sprain and a strain? A sprain is an injury to the tendon which can be overstretched, twisted or in more severe cases torn. A strain usually affects a muscle also called a “pulled muscle” and it happens when a muscle tissue is either overstretched or torn. Scenar Therapy is highly effective in treating these conditions and best results are obtained if the therapy is applied as soon as possible, significantly shortening the recovery period. You can help yourself by applying ice packs every 2 to 3 hours, avoid heating the area so NO hot packs or hot baths, wrap the injury with a bandage to support it, rest (any exercise should stop) and try not to put weight on the injury. It is important to keep elevating the injury by keeping it on a raised pillow, if possible, this will help minimise the swelling. You should book a Scenar session as soon as possible. Scenar therapy will decrease pain fast, reduce swelling and help the body absorb any bruising, will also help the body regain mobility faster. This is an important part of recovery as you will need to move in order for the affected joint or muscle not to become stiff and not loose muscle mass. You should, however, only try to move again when you can gently exercise the injured area without pain stopping you.

Scenar Therapy

📎 SCENAR TREATMENT OF MUSCLE TEARS AFTER SPORT ACTIVITIES

Many sport activities involve precise movement in which muscle groups contract synergistically to achieve the desired effect. Examples are the baseball pitch, the tennis serve, the martial arts roundhouse kick, disc golf throw and the sprint. But perhaps the best example is a golf swing. The golf swing (drive or putt) requires strength, coordination, muscle and soft tissue flexibility, and optimal joint movement in the spine, shoulders, hips, knees, and even ankles.

Plantar Fasciitis - Heel Pain

This is one of the most common causes of heel and foot pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes (plantar fascia).

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting. Chronic pain is often excruciating and debilitating. Let us fix it with Shockwave Therapy or Scenar Therapy

Groin pull -- or Groin strain -

results from putting too much stress on muscles in your groin and thigh. If these muscles are tensed too forcefully or too suddenly, they can get over-stretched or torn.

Groin pulls are common in people who play sports that require a lot of running and jumping. In particular, suddenly jumping or changing direction is a likely cause. Groin pulls often appear in people who play soccer and football, and they make up about 10% of all injuries in professional hockey players

Foot Pain - Plantar Fasciitis

Scenar Therapy for Foot Pain

Plantar fasciitis: The most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel. Approximately 2 million patients are treated for this condition every year.

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the strong band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot becomes irritated and inflamed.

It is often described as the worse pain on awakening as one takes their first few steps in the morning. Its like walking on broken glass. A sharp tearing pain like the splitting of dry rubber bands that may become relieved after minutes of walking as the tissue begins to stretch. When sitting for prolonged periods, the fascia tightens and pain again returns with a vengeance. The pain is excruciating on arising and unbearable with walking or just standing in place.

The combined treatments of Scenar Therapy, Microcurrent Therapy in conjunction with specific adjustments and taping for support will correct the condition and eliminate the daily and unnecessary suffering.

Call me at 403.250.9886 to start your road to recovery and return to normal activities.

Scennar Therapy for
Dupuytren's - Trigger
Contracture Finger

- A condition that affects the fascia—the fibrous layer of tissue that lies underneath the skin in the palm and fingers.
- In patients with Dupuytren's, the fascia thickens, then tightens over time. This causes the fingers to be pulled inward, towards the palm, resulting in what is known as a "Dupuytren's contracture."
- In some patients, a worsening Dupuytren's contracture can interfere with hand function, making it difficult for them to perform their daily activities.

When this occurs, there are specialized treatments that is performed to resolve this issue and normalize hand function as well as tightness in the forearms.

What are the benefits of using ENART for the Healthcare Practitioner❓

Main benefits of ENART - pain relief, devices stimulates the release substances wich regulate the systems responsible for pain perception.

If one knows the spinal nerve system then one can do a great job with pain reduction or complete elimination.

Also, the research shows that ENART had almost a 70% success rate for skin diseases and between 80% and 90% success rate for diseases of the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, urogenital system, and nervous system!

Doctors and bodywork therapists – of whatever discipline – would benefit from using this technology in their practice. ENART is an extremely useful tool in physical therapy!

There are many ways to use the ENART device:
- it can be used in place of needles on the meridian system of acupuncture;
- it can be used on the microsystem of the ear;
- it can be viewed as working with dermatones or through trigger points.

➡ The tables https://invet.net/enart-publications.php indicate the effectiveness of the ENART, Scenar and Prologue devices in a wide range of medical conditions. Individual results may vary.

"I am using the device every day in my clinic - collecting information and gaining understanding on how best to apply the device. Also I am beginning to get a sense of when the patient has had enough treatment - when the body has started to respond and the initiation of changes in the body are occurring. I did not expect this to happen but I am developing an empathy with the ENART, a kind of unification of mind and machine as we are working together. Very exciting."

At the time of the first visit with me in september 2019, the client was able to walk with the aid of 2 walking sticks and propelled the body by throwing the hips forward and needed to look down to prevent from falling.
Examination revealed… diag 1 assessment of lumbar spine indicated readings of 15 -25 +/- as well as lack of sensory feelings in hips, legs & feet.
Treatment every week to lumbar spine & paraspinals ,quad lumbar ,glutes and all muscles of the legs.
Minimal changes for 6 months before significent changes began to occur…then gradual improvements. Changes in order of occurrence…..
Client able to sense grass under the feet
Walking with slightly less stiffness.( still using sticks + wide stance)
Able to walk looking forward ; not down
Improved sensory perception in legs & muscle response to scenar treatment.
After latest mri imaging neurologist advised swelling no longer visible.. however some scar tissue & narrowing within the spinal canal…..neurologist amazed at changes !!!
Client now walks around house without the aid of sticks but still uses them when outside…walking now with legs closer together and an almost normal gait.
Diag 1 readings in lumbar spine now 70 – 90 with muscle action much improved.

Frozen Shoulder:

Cause, Diagnostics, SCENAR Treatment.

THE FROZEN SHOULDER SYNDROME IS A CLINICAL PHENOMENON THAT INVOLVES PAIN AND LIMITED MOBILITY IN THE SHOULDER JOINT CAUSED BY ANY OF THE PATHOLOGIES.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Risk factors:

age;
injuries or surgical interventions in the shoulder joint;
diabetes;
cardiovascular disease;
cerebrovascular disease;
endocrine pathology.
Most often, the Frozen Shoulder syndrome is characterized by the development of the degenerative
inflammatory changes in the joint-ligamentous apparatus of the shoulder. On the radiograph, it looks like
arthrosis and calcium deposits in the lateral parts of the joint capsule. Usually the Frozen Shoulder is a
chronic, long-term process, but it can develop suddenly, acutely and without visible provoking factors.

Clinically, the Frozen Shoulder is characterized by the shoulder pain with the radiation to the arm
and limitation of a range of motion in the shoulder joint. The motion limitation is more pronounced during
bending, extension and external rotation, less – at internal rotation. The movements in the neck are
completely the same but can somewhat increase the pain. With the abduction of the arm, the pain
intensifies sharply, the muscles of the shoulder girdle tighten. Due to contracture, shoulder abduction is
limited: the shoulder is “riveted” to the shoulder blade, and only a small abduction is possible. Forward
and backward movements are relatively free. Reflex and sensitive disorders in the shoulder girdle are not
detected.

Pain in the Frozen Shoulder is caused by:

pathology of the rotator cuff of the shoulder,
adhesive capsulitis;
myofascial pain syndrome;
a combination of these conditions.
Therefore, the therapy should be comprehensive and include not only the treatment of the joint, but
also the therapy of the soft tissues of the shoulder girdle
