The term "myofascia" refers to the muscle, "myo", and the connective tissue that surrounds and attaches the muscle, "fascia", hence, "Myofascial".
The release that is achieved with this technique is therapeutic on many levels:
1. Primary reduction of subluxations
2. Return muscles to normal tonus and function
3. Enhance healing and recovery
4. Strengthen and rehabilitate atrophied muscles
5. Re-establish range of motion and posture
6. Improve strength and performance
VMR was developed out of a desire to enhance healing. Specifically it was the skeletal muscle tension associated with subluxation that was being addressed. It was found that there were lines of correction in the domestic animals that, if released with this technique, would allow the muscle and tendon fixations associated with subluxations to relax.
One of the goals is to return the muscle to its original tone. It was found that VMR could easily accomplish this effect. At the same time, there is no trauma to the pet. Previously, physical therapy was used to rehabilitate these muscles and tendons but the process was usually arduous and painful as it can sometimes be in the human. The animal does not understand why its limbs are being forced through painful ranges of motion and generally sees the whole process as unpleasant and therefore is uncooperative.
VMR contacts lines of correction in the domestic animal that releases these tensions and does it in seconds. There is absolutely no pain or discomfort to the patient. To release these areas, the practitioner has to treat the patient with several rapid-fire pulses, directed to specific sites. These pulses have to be fast enough and with enough force that human hands and even the Adjusting Device would not be effective. The pulses have be 5lb to 60lb and less than 20 milliseconds in duration. The pulses have to be as rapid as 10-15 per second. This is why VMR requires a special device.
The Vetrostim Device
Adapted from human application in this field, the Vetrostim incorporates the parameters for Myofascial release as delineated above, but for the extended range that is needed in the veterinary field. The device is non-traumatic to the patient and easy to use. The Vetrostim has a number of specialized heads that are easily changed for different applications. It is a hand-held device and delivers a complete range of healing pulses to the animal.
The Vetrostim and its application in Veterinary Myofascial Release Technique is the future of muscular therapy in the domestic animal. The device is FDA approved.
