Trigenics® Functional Muscle Neurology at
Motion Health Centre

What Is Trigenics? ®

Dr Egan treating a patient's shoulderThe aim of Trigenics ® Functional Muscle Neurology is to restore full length and strength of all imbalanced muscles acting on all joints in the kinetic chain and therefore providing significantly improved function and freedom from chronic pain. It works by reprograming how the brain sends pain and movement signals to the muscles of the body. Often results begin immediately, are long-lasting and are the missing solutions to conditions that have not fully resolved with other treatment methods.

For the athlete or fitness enthusiast, Trigenics ® helps to identify areas of poor muscle programming and imbalance as well as provides corrective treatment to prevent injuries and enhance performance. Sometimes recipients actually report being able to lift more weight, run faster, swim farther or just feel more movement and more coordinated.

Our goal with Trigenics ® care at Motion Health Centre in Sydney CBD is to help reset your motion. So, whether you are suffering from shoulder, hip, knee or back pain, decreased sports performance, early signs of an initial injury or a chronic condition or pain that is not resolving, the Trigenics ® method of care could be a missing component to the solution for your problems.

Trigenics ® may be beneficial for the following:

Upper Limb Conditions

  • Chronic shoulder pain
  • Shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder instability
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Elbow pain, epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Wrist pain, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Poor grip strength

Lower Limb Conditions

  • Chronic hip pain and knee pain
  • Hip impingement, hip degeneration
  • Patella femoral syndrome
  •  Difficulty bending, squatting, lunging, walking up stairs or hills
  • Shin splints, sprained ankles
  •  Plantar fasciitis, heel pain

Spinal Related Conditions

  • Neck and back pain
  • Bulging discs
  • Tingling and numbness
  • Whiplash
  • Headache and migraines
  • TMJ or Jaw pain
  • Spinal muscle tension
  • Degeneration, arthritis pain

Sports Performance

  • Sports injury prevention
  • Identify weak muscles and immobility
  • Increase strength or power
  • Improve flexibility (yoga, dance, etc.)
  • Help running, swimming, golf, kicking and throwing sport injuries
  • Lift more weight
  • And more

Trigenics ® Mapping for Weakness, Immobility and Causes of Pain

Illustration of anatomy When a muscle becomes injured, damaged or stressed, the nerve sensors located within the muscles can send impaired movement and pain signals to the brain that override normal signaling. If left undetected or unresolved, it can result in decreased muscle strength (inhibition), and range of motion (tight) and unbalanced muscle pull patterns that lead to pain and dysfunction.

This negative declining process can have a far-reaching effect on the natural muscle sling patterns of the whole body.

Trigenics ® uses manual muscle testing procedures to examine all the muscles of the body and detect which specific muscles are functionally weak and short for you. The findings are plotted on a Trigenics Myoneural Kinetic muscle map. The result is a thorough understanding of how your brain has adapted to muscle stressors and is now coordinating movement due to past injury, strain, weakness or poor technique.

The Trigenics ® Myoneural Kinetic muscle map is useful in correlating with other movement type assessments, Chiropractic, and orthopaedic examinations. Although taught in many manual medicine schools, often this level of assessment is not a component of the traditional manual health and physical medicine practitioners’ examinations. At Motion Health Centre, we believe this additional information is critical in providing you the best results possible.

Trigenics ® Treatment

Trigenics is a low force, multi-modal manual procedure. It works by combining three treatment techniques and applies these simultaneously for a synergistic therapeutic effect on the muscles neurology which is much greater than if you only applied one. The three components are as follows:

  • Resisted exercise movements: These movements activate specific neurological reflex messages to the brain.
  • Muscle nerve sensor stimulation: This action is performed by hand or instrument-assisted in a specific way that stimulates muscles sensors.
  • Focused diaphragm breathing: Similar to yoga breathing, this type of breathing helps optimise effects of the other components.

Once your myoneural kinetic assessment has been mapped out, a Trigenics ® treatment plan is set about using Trigenics strengthening and lengthening treatment procedures to repair these abnormal imbalances and muscle communication pathways. The aim is to restore strength and motion and get you back to doing what you enjoy.

During a Trigenics ® treatment, patients are interactive participants with the doctor. This can be advantageous over other forms of passive manual treatments, and patients enjoy being more involved in their care.

Trigenics ® is considered to be safe and useful as a stand-alone method of care and therefore can often provide similar or greater results as joint mobilisation or Chiropractic manipulation/adjustments. However, Trigenics ® combined with these other two disciplines may be even more effective.
