Redcord/Neurac and Functional Synergistic Muscle Patterning To Cure Foot and Ankle Pain
Are you struggling with foot or ankle pain and unsure of what is causing it or how to remedy it? Have previous treatments failed to help your foot and ankle pain? Does your pain cause intolerance to walking or limit your sport or recreational activities? Well, we may have the answer for you! Redcord and The Neurac Method combined with an approach called Functional Synergistic Muscle Patterning may be the game changer you have been searching for to alleviate your foot and ankle pain.
New Treatment Methods for the Foot and Ankle
The foot and ankle are complex systems of joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. They are often impacted by dysfunctions in other areas of the body leading to a wide variety of injury. The good news is that these various foot and ankle dysfunctions can be identified and reversed with unique forms of Physical Therapy treatments using Redcord and The Neurac Method and Functional Synergistic Muscle Pattern Training. Unfortunately, many traditional treatment plans do not yet include these cutting edge tactics. But, we do!
Redcord & The Neurac Method
Redcord and The Neurac Method training for the ankle incorporates the use of the various ankle muscles in coordination with the leg, hip and core muscles. Research has shown that this type of training stimulates a lift of the arch (decreases navicular drop) and subsequently reduces joint and tendon stresses. This can then be followed by specific functional training to translate the newly found muscular activation patterns into meaningful motion.
Functional Synergistic Muscle Patterning
Functional Synergistic Muscular Pattern Training helps an individual to more effectively use optimal patterns of muscular activation to perform an activity. It involves creating vectors of resistance in various planes that stimulate the body to more effectively use combinations of muscle to perform an activity. Additionally, the Physical Therapist provides detailed postural and movement cues in order to prevent the individual from compensating with subtle and deleterious patterns of motion. This training results in a much more balanced muscular system with improved mobility about the joints.
