Manual techniques

The founder of Manual Medicine was neurologist Prof. MUDr. Karel Lewit, DrSc. (1916 – 2014).

Mobilization is an exercise whose aim is to influence movement in the joint, including joint flexibility. It is gradual, non-aggressive restoration of movement of the joint upon malfunction. Mobilization is performed by gentle movements in the direction of the joint blockage (limited joint flexibility).

Soft techniques  influence structures such as skin, subcutaneous tissue and fascia by rolling, stretching, folding or pressing. Working the muscles is one of the basic approaches when dealing with pain of the musculoskeletal system. Traditional therapies include a wide range of methods. One of them we most frequently apply is so-called postisometric relaxation (PIR).

Another soft tissue technique is treating scars, which can often be a hidden cause of your difficulties. Even a scar several years old or an inconspicuously small scar may be active, and through difficult chain reactions, may cause various disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

  • If soft tissues are not flexible or elastic, and move between one another, we cannot reach the full movement range in the joint. The same applies for muscles, which must move freely within their connective tissues in order to reach out fully to their natural length and stretch, providing the full range of muscular function.
  • When restoring the mobility and flexibility of individual soft tissues, we follow the presence of a “natural barrier” of the given tissue, and then the “melting phenomenon”. If we did not adhere to this, the tissue could become overstretched or even injured (microtrauma).
  • Stretched soft tissues are mainly found among individuals with chronic musculoskeletal system problems, i.e. months and even years of lasting pain and other issues. This also involves acute patients among whom however these changes often disappear along with removal of the cause of the problem. For chronic problems it is thus commonly necessary for musculoskeletal treatment to perform soft techniques, so that the entire problem could be resolved.
  • SO WHEN DO WE USE IT
    We use it for clients experiencing pain of the musculoskeletal system, muscle tension, muscle cramps, postoperative conditions that heal with a scar, decreased joint mobility and blocks of joints for various reasons (functional – e.g. swelling or structural).

  • WHEN IS IT NOT RECOMMENDED
    Upon certain acute conditions (inflammation and feverish conditions).

 

Segment reflex massage

This involves searching for places with altered skin sensitivity and consequent reflex changes, by which it is possible to achieve a change in function of internal organs by targeted excitement of reflex zones on the skin surface. Hyperallergic /in the sense of increased sensory response/ places on the skin in certain dermatomes correspond to the given visceral roots, and we call them the zones of Head.

Their aim is to remove pathological changes on the skin, in tissue, the subcutaneous tissue, fascia, muscles and periosteum.

It has a positive effect on functional circulation disorders appearing with a change in skin temperature, change in skin tension, change in respiration and peristalsis of the intestines

Principles of a segment reflex massage:
We perform the massage slowly without using any  massage agents. Touches must be carried out accurately. The convergence of touches is fixed. 
The aim is to remove pathological changes on the skin, in tissue, the subcutaneous tissue, fascia, muscles and periosteum.


Indication: 

1. Functional and organic diseases of internal organs 

2. Circulation disorders (cold hands, cold feet) 

3. Degenerative and inflammatory disease of the musculoskeletal system. 

4. Post-injury and post-operative conditions 

5. Vegetative and endocrine disregulation.

Counterindication: 

1. Acute inflammatory conditions of tissue and organs  

2. Conditions requiring hospital bed rest 

3. Fever and infectious illnesses 

4. Pregnancy and menstruation
