Is your locomotor system healthy?
Our locomotor system consists of a passive part and an active part. The passive part, also known as the supporting apparatus, includes bones, joints, ligaments and discs. The active part consists of muscles, tendons, fascia and bursae, among other things. Muscles stabilize the body in one position or they carry out movements.
A healthy musculoskeletal system includes muscles with a balanced resting tone, good contractility and elasticity as well as elastic fascial tissue that does not restrict movement and erection. This is because the musculoskeletal system is designed to function optimally in an upright posture.
Through sufficient and varied movement, the muscles are at the same time kept strong and flexible, well supplied with blood and nourished. The fascia or the surrounding gliding tissue remains elastic and can easily be moved against each other. Everything works painlessly.
What causes illness and pain?
Today, lifestyle or profession often lead to chronic complaints. Lack of exercise plays a central role in this.
We often remain in the same position for far too long, e.g. when sitting at the PC. The musculature is overwhelmed to stabilize the body without a break, almost motionless. – However, one-sided activities also place a disproportionate strain on certain muscle groups due to recurring movement sequences, e.g. when cashiering at the checkout.
The overwhelmed muscle areas react with painful tension, i.e. a permanently increased muscle tone. At the same time they lose elasticity and coordination skills. The blood circulation and nutrition becomes worse.
The fascias and gliding tissue loses its elasticity and so-called adhesions are formed in the layers that can be moved against each other. The movement and erection is first made more difficult, then restricted. If the full erection is not completely released by the tissue, the muscles have to do much more work (see above), the tensions become stronger etc. etc.
A vicious circle begins, which leads to increasingly severe pain and ultimately to irreparable damage to the body, e.g. slipped discs.
What can I do?
Of course, it would be optimal not to let complaints arise in the first place. A lot of balancing movement plays an important role. The muscle groups at risk must be stretched and strengthened, and the associated fascias kept supple and elastic so as not to get caught in the vicious circle described above. You should also think about posture training in order to learn and train the physiologically correct movement sequences and upright posture.
The measures are similar to those in prevention. Here too, sufficient and compensatory movement and posture training are very important.
However, if complaints have already occurred, the vicious circle described must be broken. To do this, you should loosen, stretch and strengthen the tensed muscles, loosen the stuck fascias tissue, mobilize your joints and improve the blood circulation and nutrition of the tissue.
And remember: Stay active even after the complaints have subsided, so as not to get caught in the vicious circle again!
What do the PHÖNIX medical products bring me?
PHÖNIX-MP are highly effective medical products. They start at many points of the vicious circle described above:
They normalize increased muscle tone.
They loosen glued fascial tissue.
They mobilize the intervertebral joints.
They stretch the abdominal tissue.
They stimulate the blood circulation.
They stimulate the metabolic activity in the tissue.
They also reach deeper tissue layers and muscles.
They relieve pain.
Many users are amazed at how much freedom and ease of movement and erection they feel after the first application.
PHÖNIX-MP can also be used preventively. And, of course, they also help to avoid slipping again into changing and ultimately painful processes.
How do the PHÖNIX-MP work?
The pressure exerted by the user’s elevations and body weight causes the so-called Golgi tendon apparatus, a proprioceptive system at the muscle-tendon junction, to react and lead to a reflex relaxation of the muscle fibres. (1.)
The mechanical action of the elevations shifts the tissue layers against each other, thereby loosening adhesions and restoring the elasticity of the fascia. (2.)
The local hyperextension during application simultaneously stretches the tissue structures on the abdominal side and mobilises the intervertebral joints. (3.and 4.)
The alternation of pressure and relief promotes blood circulation and thus stimulates the metabolic activity of the treated tissue. (5. and 6.)
The pressure stimulus on the mechanoreceptors reduces the pain signal of the nociceptors(8.)
