)-- A local clinical massage practice in Bedford Commons brings myoskeletal techniques to area residents suffering from persistent muscle pain. Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques® are applied to help align a patient’s skeleton (head, neck, spine, ribcage, shoulders, pelvis, and hips) by manipulating the soft tissues of the body.
Manchester-Bedford Myoskeletal LLC sees two main groups of people: Myoskeletal massage patients - those with poor functional posture, and; Remedial massage patients – both those with soft tissue injury (such as from auto accidents, slips and falls), or soft tissue pain (from every day wear and tear, fitness workouts, and organized sports).
“Ever people-watch? You see ‘crooked’ posture everywhere,” says Mr. Joel Kouyoumjian, clinic owner of “MBM”, as he calls his practice. “Heads craned forward, slumped shoulders, exaggerated low back curves…. Most people don’t realize they’re setting themselves up for chronic pain. Most people who have muscle pain often have no idea why. All they know is that they hurt; they’ve been hurting for a while, and they want to stop hurting. Applying myoskeletal techniques may help countless patients with muscle pain and dysfunction.”
Why this is significant lies in the manner in which your brain chooses muscles to do work. If a first-choice muscle doesn’t do what it is supposed to, the brain recruits other muscles to do the work. Nerve signals to the primary muscle are overridden by signals to secondary ones and the primary becomes inhibited. Eventually, those back-up muscles overwork, placing strain on the skeleton and even pulling it out of alignment. When this happens, compensation patterns evolve such as limping, leaning to one side, shortening gait, etc. Eventually, we feel chronic muscle tension and pain.
Myoskeletal protocols assess a whole body regardless of where symptoms appear to determine gross dysfunction in the muscular system. From the assessment, a treatment plan is drawn up, and the patient is educated on the findings before putting the plan to work. Once the skeleton is aligned, compensations stop happening, and muscle pain is drastically reduced or eliminated.
