Mechanical Motion Therapy
MMT is a branded, doctor certified technology that is a combination of instrument technology coupled with simultaneous patient-assisted specific postures. This dual-motion therapy is the guiding principle of MMT. Specifically, dual-motion therapy is the treatment of a human being, with the patient actively participating in the treatment during the visit. It uses muscles, ligaments, joints, the nervous system and every other involved tissue component which may have an affect on individual results. During MMT the patient, moves in a very specific motion pattern while the MMT Specialist directs the instrument in a prescribed manner. This allows the doctor to utilize exactly the right amount of tension and force upon the tissues as the treatment is applied.
Mechanical Motion Therapy can have a powerful, pain relieving effect on the tissues containing the specialized receptors, even in instances where it has been present for years. MMT affects the sensation of pain by altering the patient’s pain threshold. In other words, it decreases the negative effect of these pain receptors while gaining increased motion and flexibility as a result.
Take for example a shoulder treatment. The patient may be moving the shoulder through a specific range of motion, partially resisting in a certain range, while the doctor is using an exact protocol. We refer to this as motion-motion therapy. The results are far and away better and more immediate than anything else that has been experienced to date. This treatment gets results even after 20, 30, or 40 years of the patient suffering.
People want a quick and comfortable solution that immediately improves the ability to function more effectively in life and reduces years of pain and inflammation. MMT addresses this desire for better health. Therefore, you may be happier, healthier and functioning at the level you want.
