What Does a Sports Therapist Do?
The aim of our sports injury therapist, is to relieve the pain associated with the injury (acute or chronic pain) that you present with. Following this we will then develop a program that aims to help restore the function in the affected area, while rebalancing the whole body.
Whilst acute pain can be given quick temporary relief, the correction of structure and function requires time and multiple visits. As an example up to 3 months will be needed for mild postural imbalances, with more serious cases taking up to 6-12 months to treat.
Biomesotherapy (BMT or Biopuncture) is a new type of therapy consisting of the use of homeopathic products and the stimulation of specific points of the body with a saline solution via injection. Most of the injections given are under the skin (subcutaneous) or in the muscles. Certain points such as Acupuncture and trigger points are used along with specific local pain points. Biomesotherapy is similar to Homeosinatry (Acupuncture combined with Homeopathy) and Nueraltherapy in its application however the difference lies in medicine injection points and depth of application, medicines used also differ.
Biomesotherapy stimulates what is known as the cutivisceral response. Oral homeopathic medicines are given simultaneously which focus on the organ or tissue requiring treatment. Upon application BMT stimulates your own bodys healing mechanisms speeding up the process of injury recovery and repair. It is very effective for PAIN relief and has been shown to be comparable to cortisone therapy without the added side affects.
Biomesotherapy can complement chiropractic, physical and sports injury therapys or may be used on its own depending on the type of condition. It may be used to treat various sports injuries, muscular pain, arthritis, chronic pain, lower back pain, neck pain and other types of acute or chronic injuries. It is especially effective in acute injurys and has been shown to decrease the duration of some sports injurys helping athletes resume their normal activity faster.
