A Complementary Alternative

The Future: Standardization

The human body moves in three dimensions of space, which occur in a system of planes and axes and reference as sagittal, frontal, and transverse. The health issues caused by posture dysfunction tend to vary by every muscle movement. During which, there is a complex system of electrical signals and chemical reactions taking place throughout the body.

When a muscle “burns” or “breaks down,” the bonds in ATP releases energy either as heat or as a power source inside the cell.  Breaking these bonds creates a chemical reaction, which in turn causes the muscle to contract. The body begins its flushing out of the metabolic waste that builds up during movement. If the body is not able to flush out the chemical bond and heat, it will stay in the muscle tissue and may cause the fibers, fascia, and tissues to become stuck or matted together. The longer the muscle fibers remain matted together, the more scar tissue will develop, resulting in constriction and immobility.

Why DHST

When it comes to discussing a fundamental problem of discomfort and pain DEMOR HotSpot Therapy (DHST), bases its importance on the efficacy of a system approach. Whether a person is coping within one or more of the job functioning and has symptoms of arthritis, carpal tunnel symptoms, fibromyalgia incorporating DHST (Bodywork and Corrective Training) as a treatment that is critical for results within the system of discomfort and pain.

Understanding Pain

DHST exploration into the self-reporting elements of discomfort provides an understanding of the hindering relationship between movement (constrictions), time (Soreness) and mind (Nagging) of natural reported sensations of Tenderness, Aching, Burning, Pain, Hurt, Stiffness, Irritation, Cramping, Throbbing, and Tingling and their effects on perception, attitude and daily functioning.  

Inflammation is a result of constricted tissue. 

  • Inflammation is a way that the body protects itself from infection and injury. 
  • Inflammation localizes and eliminate harmful agents and remove damaged tissue components. 
  • Inflammation consists of blood flow changes, an increase in permeability of blood vessels, and the migration of fluid, proteins, and white blood cells leukocytes from circulation to the site of damaged tissue. 
  • The Inflammatory response follows a protocol that of acute if only a few days, while a reply of longer duration to test chronic inflammation. 

Biomechanical and Chemical Processes

To create ATP the body needs to have oxygen readily available, and it needs to be able to dispose of metabolic wastes (carbon dioxide or lactic acid along with other chemicals) and heat. The point of this discernment for using this mode of therapy (DHST) in treating tissues of the body is determining whether damaged portions of a muscle tendon connection as a strain, a ligament as a sprain or fascia as our protective layer can set up a chain of reactions that can ruin other portions of bundle tissue. Thereby, starting the inflammation process and increasing recovery time, or whether this new standardized procedure can help aid in a person returning to real time performance with a reduction of inflammation causing pain and discomfort thereby returning to action?

The Mechanism of Treatment Matters

By observing the body in terms of biomechanical and chemical processes the focus of DHST as a pain treatment modality, is to:

  1. Explore – Therapist examine from origin to insertion of muscles from one joint to the next to discover chemically bonded tissue for treatment purposes.
  2. Locate – Therapist determine the site or indicate the particular spot they find so treatment can take place.
  3. Activate – Therapist accelerate the function of tissue by decelerate the decomposition of restrictive tissue and to render excitation of functional movement.
  4. Isolate – Therapist single out and separate chemically bonded tissue so the healing process can take place.
  5. Treat – Therapists follow the DEMOR Way using Pin-Point, Moderate and Gentle Pressure, Synergistically Strong and Long Smooth Strokes, with Stretching Action in the form of varying levels of ischemic compression.

Whether individuals are coping with arthritis, carpal tunnel symptoms, fibromyalgia, overuse muscles from lack of flexibility training or developing neck, lower back and tennis elbow while sitting at the computer, the four key components of this treatment are:

  1. Time – Therapists have a predetermined amount of time to assess a situation and administer treatment. It is within these limits that therapists operate to have an effect on the tissue of the body.
  2. Structure – Therapists follow an organization of interrelated point to effect change in the system of tissue featuring connections between the biomechanical movement of tissue within the axles and planes of space.
  3. Flow – In psychological terms flow is best known as “being in the zone”. As it relate in DHST treatment flow is defined when therapist have explored, located and activated a “HotSpot” they then isolate that spot by being fully immersed and completely absorbed within the treatment process.
  4. Pressure – Therapists will remained in constant contact with clients to determine what level of discomfort or pain the person is experiencing.  It is vital that at the moment of experiencing discomfort or pain that can be discerned and reflected between 1 and 10. These numbers will be used to regulate pressure that is applied to the “HotSpots”.
  5. Treatment – Using different compressions and strokes in different areas depending on the person’s pain level, sensation and indicators. The therapist treatment is determined by these factors. The objective is to flush inflammatory metabolites (lactic acid, carbon dioxide, calcium and three form of phosphates) out of the area for the lymphatic system to expel from the body allowing the area to heal and begin to recover flexibility, mobility and strength. The communication between practitioner and person are the up-most important.

Conclusion

Strains and sprains are overuse, repetitive or prolonged movement whether they come from fitness, sports events, everyday movement or ailments called Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,  Fibromyalgia, Lack of Flexibility or Strength Training, Computer Station Disorder. A point of separation of these limits falls under acute and chronic. In the end, it is all about pain and discomfort, whether it from everyday use or an ailment we want it gone.
