［What is a real issue of your body?］
Do you have some issues about your body such as back, shoulder or knee pain? Did it never go away even though after several massage or electrotherapy? Did the quality of your performance in your athletic field fail to reach the same level as the one before you got injured? Furthermore, have you injured the same part of your body again and again during your physical activity?
We believe that there are specific reasons your body suffers from these kinds of issues.
- The inside joint (the joint movements)
- The outside joint (the functions of muscles, soft tissues etc)
- The posture/motions
The combination of those 3 elements are the fundamental causes of your body issues.
Let us give you some examples:
A person who suffers from knee pain has tendencies to knee-in/knee-out or too much shoulder movement in walking.
As these motions continue for a long time, the defference of left and right side muscle tightness(outside of the joint element) and function will occur.
If those stress on the knee continues for a long time, inside of the knee will be hurted. Ofcouse, we can say the otherway as the same. If you get trauma in playing sport, it will influence the difference of outside of the joint, posture, and movement. Also, it will cause inside of the joint and chronic pain.
［Get back to Symmetry – balanced proportions –］
What specific kinds of body condition should we aim at for the purpose of living without pain or delivering high-quality of athletic performance?
We believe that "Symmetry; balanced proportions" is the answer for the above question, and unbalanced proportions cause many issues for your body.
We can guess that there are many people
- Who have a stiff shoulder or back just only one side
- Who get injured a several times just only one side
- Who have some issues on joints that are not the primary affected area after a knee, shoulder or hip joint surgery or etc...
Generally, human body which are bones and muscles except veins and some inner organs, are created in symmetry. If one of three elements, which are the inside joint (the joint movements), the outside joint (the functions of muscles) and the posture/motion, are unbalanced, it can induce some issues on your body that we mentioned above such as a stiff shoulder.
We will analyze what are the exact causes of the issues on your body by
- MRI/X-ray information from affiliated hospitals
- Examination of the range of motion
- Examination of the standing and walking posture
Then, we will execute physical therapy and body conditioning for you.
［What is physical rehabilitation and body conditioning?］
We define that physical rehabilitation and body conditioning is the method to enable our clients’requests. It ranges from chronic and acute pain relief to injury prevention for sports lovers and the provement of the quality of the performance for the athletes.
The rehabilitation and conditioning seek out fundamental causes of physical issues and offer Hands-on Manual Therapies and Sports and Orthopedic Physical Therapy to achieve cliants' goals.
［Hands-on Manual Therapy］
We understand that Hands-on Manual Therapy is one of methods that not only to relieve the pain but also to approach the fundamental causes of the physical issues. Hands-on Manual Therapy is executed focusing on the improvement of the inside joint (the joint movements) and the outside joint (the muscle function).
The inside joint (the joint movements)
Joint mobilization (Inside joint)
The movements of the inside of joints, such as sliding, rolling and spinal mobilization are assessed and corrected.
PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation)
The motion of joints and nerves are activated in use of innate body reflections
The outside joint (the functions of muscles & soft tissues)
The muscle tightness is relieved and returned to its usual function.
Hands-on Manual Therapy improves the tightness of the muscle, the restriction of joint movements and abnormal posture such as scoliosis, which cannot be accessed and corrected by the self stretching.
Our exercise therapy is for the improvement of the motion and movements of the joints and muscles that have decreased their function, not for the strength of the muscle. Mainly, our therapy focuses on the correction of the postures and motions. The therapy is customized for each condition with the patients, for example stretching the tight muscle, re-educating the muscle that is not be able to move in an effective way and improving joint appropriate movements if it is unable to access the range of mobility.
We use the ultrasound machine which
・decreases inflammation of soft tissues
・makes over tention muscles relax by thermal effect
・makes the blood flow smoothly
・accelerates the bone healing for fractures
Physical therapy facilitates effect of exercise therapy when you use both together.
