Herniated Disc Care without surgery
The muscles of our body have rubber band like characteristics, which are made of a kind of elastic tissue, which helps our body to move freely and also support our body to maintain a good posture.
However, muscles may weaken over time or become asymmetric due to bad postures, structural defects of the bones, changes due to compression on the nervous system, and injuries caused by trauma. This can lead to chronic pain as muscles are unable to cure by themselves and reach their limit. As the pain worsens, the body will signal for help.
However, if you simply ignore these signals and turn to pain medications and pain management therapies, it can lead to a more serious consequences and you can find yourself in the emergency room with a major illness within few years.
For example, when we look at the muscles around the back of patients with chronic back pain, we can see muscle knots and muscular adhesions, which prevents the muscles from exerting their original strength and our body becomes more asymmetric. The muscles in the area will become more tight and more muscle knots will occur, as well as causing pain around the joints.
In order to correct these abnormal muscles, experts have recommended and used a variety of methods, such as stretching, graston therapy, deep tissue massage, dry needle, and myofascial trigger point release. However, it was difficult to see a significant improvement compared to the time and effort that was put in.
The muscles in our bodies regenerate throughout life (e.g., form new muscle tissues overnight). However, tight and knotted muscles become less able to regenerate and the pain worsens over time. Although many clinicians have tried to normalize the muscles that have lost their capability to regenerate by approaching with volume and power, the fruits oftheir efforts were not seen.
After 35 years of time and effort given to rehabilitate the muscles, we remembered the old saying where a baby who have endured a severe sickness of a fever of 104 ℉ will grow taller and bigger. Following this concept, we tried manual treatment on the patient by applying heat to the muscles. As the temperature increased, the therapeutic effect was shown and the pain lessened. When the temperature reached 104℉, it had the best effect and we succeeded in rehabilitating the muscles to perform their normal function.
The average temperature of our skin is 93℉ and the temperature will not rise above 99℉ even after spending a few hours in a hot sauna that is over 122℉. In that degree, our body is protected by the skin. On the other hand, if the temperature of our skin rises above 109 ℉, it is a dangerous temperature, which can cause our skin to burn.
I myself, used a cold laser, a longwave diathermy, to treat body muscles of 100 patients who visited our Dr Yoon Physical Therapy office located in Boston, Massachusetts, for past 9 months between March 1, 2018 to November 30, 2018 by elevating the skin temperature around 99 ℉ to 106℉. After elevating their skin temperatures to the muscle knots to treat using the manual therapy, the muscular adhesions of 100 patients have changed to its normal.
The changed muscles of its before and after treatment were taken through comparative analysis with ultrasonography, and as expected, a comparison of the treatment’s before and after showed a significant change in the results of the muscular adhesions.
Unlike other existing therapies, there were no recurrences with applying this technique for only once or twice to treat and ease the pain of herniated cervical disc, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), and arthritis (joint inflammation). Therefore, I would like to announce this technique to inform all medical professionals around the world to help contribute the wellness and healthy lives of all people.
Lastly, in the future, I hope many medical professionals who are interested in this field will come out and broaden this research so it can be organized more systematically.
This technique is called the “YOON’s Technique.”
