Sequential Firing Of Motor Nerves Restores Function & Strength Print E-mail

    This video by Dominic Munnelly shows how the patient is tested for mobility and functional movement by looking for sequential firings of the motor nerves.  The purpose of sequential firings is to make sure the patient/athlete is moving properly so as to avoid injury by depending on compensation by stronger muscle groups. 

    Functional restoration requires the athlete to actually exercise while the Infrex FRM is on and stimulating motor nerves.  The purpose of the exercises, coupled with high frequency electrical stimulation, is to complete full force voluntary movement involving the most motor nerves possible.   Volitional movements by the patient incorporates the smaller diameter fibers and the Infrex high frequency electrotherapy machine activates the larger diameter fibers at the same time.   The process is one of the reasons rehabilitation time is diminished considerably using athletic exercises with functional stimulation.   Enjoy the video.

Point Location & Stimulation Video For Pain Control Print E-mail

 

    The human body is an electrical circuit with points of resistance and points of conductance that constantly change depending on the condition of the body.  With injury certain locations become more conductive to electricity and are used to electrically stimulate for pain, increased range of motion, quicker rehabilitation and tissue healing.   Here is a nice video from arpwave using what they call a "search and destroy" methodology that works off the point location/stimulation properties of our body. 

   If anyone doubts this concept it can be shown by simply using an ohm meter and liteally measuring the points on the body.  After finding, then stimulate, and remeasure the exact same points.  One finds less pain, the acutal point is now more resistant, and for many greater range of motion.  There is no hocus pocus with this naturally occurring process that our body uses for injury and illness.   See video below:

High Ankle Sprain Electrotherapy Protocol Print E-mail

  Here is a video detailing protocol for high frequency stimulation on a high ankle sprain.   Purpose was to get Dwight Freeney back on field for Super Bowl game against the New Orleans Saints.  Functional restoration is the process of accelerating the natural state of self healing using the body's electrical characteristics and currents for rapid repair and full competitive function.

 

 

 
What Is A Hormone Profile? Print E-mail

Dr. Joe Hummel

   Often a clinic that specializes in "Hormone Replacement Therapy" is immediately regarded as an "estrogen" or "testosterone" clinic implying the patients are there for  "sexual dysfunction".   Women often seek hormone replacemlent therapy from their physician.   That simply is not the case if one is going to a "wellness clinic" or "science based medical clinic".  The reason for the reference by many to the sexual side is much of the discussion centers on what is known as male or female hormones related to sexual functions and sexual male/female characteristics.  There are many more hormones than those two, and even those two may require the use of other hormones, specifically DHEA,  to effectively assimilate those two hormones into our system properly.

   My personal experience has been I go to my medical doctor,

What is High Frequency electrical stimulation?

 

    The term "high frequency" gets bantered around in medical circles indiscrimately.  If one reads that a "bone healing machine" or a "wound healing machine" or one can "repair tissue and get back to competitive sports" if they use a certain high frequency machine for sports rehab. acceleration of healing, then what are they saying?

     There is no doubt that estim, electrotherapy, can accomplish the above results however it's not certain any form of "high frequency" is what is causing the changes.   Basically in electrotherapy we have a core definition of how our body, specifically nerves, respond to pulses of electricity.   We get lost when we venture too far astray from nerves and guesstimate effects on the cellular level.   Frequency is nothing but "how many times per second is this tens machine, interferential machine, Russian stim machine, pulsed galvanic machine, or muscle stimulator going off and on.   It's nothing more than that. 

     With electrotherapy and nerves the following applies:

1.  C fibers, pain fibers/nerves, respond to 1 - 5 times per second for a machine to go off and on;

2. Motor fibers, muscle nerves, respond to 1 - 38:

3. Sensory fibers, feel something other than pain, 1 - 80.

    Due to physical and chemical restraints a machine going off and on more than that has very little, if any effect on those nerves.  However the use of "high frequency" generally refers to a machine going off and on from 1,000 - 20,000 times per second so what gives?
