This is the introductory video on understanding functional restoration and how it can help the chronic pain patient or improve athletic performance.

   Applied kinesiology is a "balancing" or homeostatic equaling used to maintain and restore function.    Often the term is used that one must "lengthen muscles" which apparently is meant to indicate the ability to make the muscle more elastic is necessary.    Often if there is warmth applied to muscle tissues, occurs with increased blood flow due to the higher heat of blood moving away from the heart, then the thermal effect allows extension or more elasticity to the muscles. 

    Always, with increased blood flow, there are extended benefits of more oxygen, greater nutrient matter, and enhanced ability to move waste products away from the muscle tissues.  The waste products can be the result of increased exercising and the quicker the waste is removed then the longer the patient can exert.   This is known as "conditioning" or increasing endurance while extending range of motion.  

   The Infrex Plus unit is capable of increasing muscle length and is used for eccentric contractions.   This well made video is illustrative of the concept of muscle lengthening using electro stimulation for functional restoration.

 

 

This back pain video explains the process of how tens or electrotherapy works to reduce chronic back pain. 

 

 

Electrotherapy and tens or interferential units can be used for compression fracture back pain.

 

  

  Functional Restorationists are individuals trained to use Functional Restoration techniques and electrotherapy devices.   They all have been Certified in F.R.T., and have been issued C.E.U.'s/C.M.E.'s in F.R.T. by the American College of Physical Medicine.  Clinicians include but are not limited to: Medical Doctors, Osteopaths, Naprapaths, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainers.   Functional Restoration is exercise/movement incorporating electrotherapy to decrease or eliminate pain, to enhance athletic performance, to facilitate tissue repair and to increase volitional control. 

 

  Functional Restoration aims to help people with chronic pain by setting them up with an exercise program to self-manage their condition. It can assist chronic pain-sufferers to increase their physical functioning, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce frequency of recurring pain episodes, and to promote the return to a productive lifestyle at home or work.

 

   Functional Restoration is used to help athletes at all levels of competitive activities enhance the motor control, increase range of motion, increase torque or force, and extend stamina. 

 

  The difference with traditional therapy and Functional Restoration is there is limited hands on treatment with functional restoration and patient compliance coupled with electrotherapy produce much quicker and longer lasting positive results with less pain.

Benefits of The Infrex Plus Unit are: 

 

Due to the nature of the way it helps, in assisting the body to “heal itself”, the Infrex Plus has had a lot of success with different injuries/ailments, including:
 
Torn ACL/ACL injuries – Many athletes have suffered  from torn ACL, and have shortened the rehab. time and healing time.  Some have avoided the expense of acl surgery, with all its inherent risks.  Rehab from an ACL tear is possible without surgery with the Infrex Plus.
 
Knee surgery – If you are wearing a knee brace, or need surgery on your knees, the Infrex Functional Restoration program is a sensible and cost effective solution to knee surgery.
 
Partial knee Surgery – Sometimes partial knee surgery is a set up for a total knee replacement.  The Infrex Plus Interferential Machine is an effective alternative to surgery, less costly and can be rented, not purchased.

Infrex Electrical Stimulation To Reduce Pain & Restore Function  

     The Infrex is used for voluntary neuromuscular facilitation by supplementing the patient's volitional movements with sensory stimulation.    Due to pain many patients will not voluntarily set their quads following knee replacement    surgery or,  radical menisectomy,  thus prolonging function restoration and creating additional pain.    The Infrex FRM will help the patient remove the "guarding" tendency and overcome the reluctance to resist the voluntary movements.

   The Infrex recruitment of additional muscle fibers, large and small, in concert with the patient's pain free efforts help reduce rehab. time and often, after 1 or 2 very short sessions, reeducates the patient on how to receive total pain free volitional control.   The electrical stimulation provides sensory input to the patient if there is neural integrity and correct form is achieved for proper function. 

    Due to the inverse relationship of motor nerve firings, from largest diameter to smallest diameter, from closest to farthest fibers, from the Infrex stimulus, the recruitment of more muscle fibers results in reduced pain and time  so the patient can gain full pain free function.

    The below videos are those used by Arpwave Company and this article is intended to supplement the understanding of how electricity, in conjunction with exercise, affects the body.   Notes below the videos were made to help you understand what processes may be going on.   The comments are not intended to pass any judgment on the efficacy of the programs, the products or the results.   This is being done to enhance the knowledge of how to prevent pain/injury and how to shorten the rehab. time period and restore function with an absence of or minimal discomfort.   This article was done after mutliple Arpwave distributors called to ask for optional methods of how electricity and polarity affect the body.
