An Essential Treatment For Health & Wellness
December 23rd, 2016 by Synergy
I could probably list off numerous qualities that separates a Synergy Release Therapist from your typical massage therapist, but one of the biggest differences is our focus on assessment. A quality assessment before any type of body work allows the therapist to take your subjective complaints (It hurts here, I feel tight there, ect.), and link it to, or rule out a bio-mechanical cause for the complaint.
Through orthopedic tests and taking specific measurements, we are able to isolate the cause of your pain or discomfort in your body. We then use multiple hands on techniques to address the cause of your pain, instead of simply treating the symptom.

One of the most common examples of this is the patient who comes in complaining of pain in the middle of their back and shoulder. With a proper assessment we can isolate the cause of the pain, which could be coming from a completely different area of the body. In the pictures below, you can see that the patient’s right shoulder is higher off the table than the left. In his case, this is caused by tight muscles in the anterior neck, anterior chest wall, and the muscles that internally rotate the shoulder.
The therapists at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute are constantly researching and learning new assessment techniques. By having this wealth of assessment knowledge, we are able to develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient, with the goals of removing pain, preventing re-occurrence of the symptoms, and increasing performance potential. So, don’t remain in pain any longer. Call today to schedule your appointment with Trey Tucker.
