Trigenics® Myoneural Therapy is an advanced breakthrough developed in the late 1980’s by Allan Austin Oolo, DC, DO. 

Trigenics® is a neurological-based treatment system that reconnects the communication between the brain and previously injured and damaged muscles and joints. 

By stimulating the body’s natural reflexes using multiple therapies simultaneously, the normal neurological pathways already in place within the body’s anatomy “wakes up” the brain and results in immediate relief of pain and increased range of motion. 

What’s more, once the preferred nerve communication pathways have been reset, the results obtained are permanent. In fact, putting this principle into practice is how the doctors decide whether or not they can accept a case and help someone. 

If a person responds in the expected way to a complimentary trial visit or two, then the case can be accepted with confidence. This is our "Unique Clinical Guarantee."

Any joint can experience this immediate pain relief and increased range of motion using Trigenics®. Knees, shoulders, hips, neck. wrists ankles and spine may all benefit from Trigenics. 

Trigenics improves and optimizes the brain’s use of neurological pathways and re-sets the “gamma bias” of large diameter myelinated sensory nerves with muscles and tendons resulting in restoration of finely tuned coordination of all the muscles around a joint. This greatly adds to joint stability, ease of motion and maximizes muscle strength. This is not intentionally obtained by any other therapy and the results achieved are permanent. The restoration of this level of function is what gives athletes that extra edge they need to perform at their highest level and "bone-on-bone" knee pain sufferers to experience less pain and better function overall out of their knees. Other joints benefit similarly as well.

Frozen shoulder / Impingement syndrome limits the range of motion of the shoulder and can leave those suffering in constant pain. The pain is often worse at night and causes restless and disturbed sleep. This can leave many people feeling exhausted and hopeless, not knowing where to go for help. 

Pain may also occur only with certain ranges of motion of the shoulder. Examination of the neck and shoulder reveals which range(s) of motion is/are restricted or unstable, then the corresponding muscle neurology is treated with specific Trigenics procedures.

With or without attendant rotator cuff tears, getting the sensory nerves within the muscle belly and tendons to function normally is the goal of Trigenics. It is through normalization of these neural pathways that results in weak muscles becoming stronger and short muscles once again attaining their normal length which together results in normal joint motion. 

When the muscles fire and relax exactly when they are supposed to, stabilization of the joint returns and pain is reduced or resolved.

Home exercises and physical therapy alone can, all too often, make the pain and joint dysfunction worse if stretching and/or exercises are administered too aggressively. Trigenics should always be utilized first, then when the joint complex is functioning optimally, then strength exercises and gently stretching will be effective (click here to read more about this phenomenon in our blog section).

Chronic rotator cuff tears respond remarkably well to Trigenics and most often do not require surgery.

The Functional Medicine Physician uses a holistic, patient-centered approach to identify and treat chronic disease. Following the examination, which often includes blood lab work and a very focused review of a patient's history, the physician begins crafting a customized treatment plan to address the unique needs of that individual.

Starting with an in-depth personal and family history, the doctor will also be interested in learning about all the specific stressors, and how the individual responds to these stressors in their life. Some of these stressors could include exposure to certain environmental and internal toxins and allergens associated with their current diet, work conditions, etc. Evaluation of the microbiome and the balance of the bacteria living in the gut and on the skin necessary for life is also of interest. Looking at the individual's genetic make-up can also give clues into possible weaknesses and what needs to be done to optimize metabolic function.

Common issues that people might choose a holistic model of care include asthma, allergies, digestive health, women's health issues, fibromyalgia, cancer prevention, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, Alzheimer's and dementia. Arthritis in its various forms, including autoimmune, are also common health issues a person might seek out a functional medicine practitioner.

The functional medicine approach to health is a simple yet effective one. The doctor will likely focus on optimal nutrition, various forms of exercise, strategies for dealing with stress, the importance and strategies for re-establishing good sleeping patterns, and the best times to get fresh air and sunshine. The doctor may also prescribe specific nutritional supplementation and/or IV infusion therapy to help provide the resources necessary for the body and mind to heal and function optimally.

While it is well known that traditional western medical care is hugely successful with acute, life-threatening conditions, unfortunately, the same track record cannot be said for treating chronic health conditions. This is where the functional medicine approach shines. Call today to see if functional medicine's individualized approach to restoring health is right for you.
