Our unique and effective treatment for sports injuries utilizes anatomy, muscle and orthopedic testing to identify body joints, or muscles that are strained or injured. Patient is seeing an average of 20 to 50% improvement on first visit.
Larry Han is the first person to promote and teaching the concept of using Tension Point Therapy to treat soft tissue and muscular injuries. The treatment is totally opposite to the conventional Trigger Point (usually seen in PT or Chiropractic offices) or A-Shi Point (apply needle in pain area usually seen in acupuncture offices), yet the treatment takes much less time but seeing an average of 20 to 50% improvement even on patient’s first visit.
Tension Point Therapy completely utilizes anatomy and physiology and muscle testing. Contrary to the finding of A-Shi points, clinical diagnosis starts by identifying the injured muscles, followed by combining therapeutic massage – that usually takes about 10 to 30 seconds, and needling of the Tension Points.
In general, after the first treatment, the patient would be able to see a drastic and apparent progress as well as speedy recoveries.
There are all types of acute/chronic pain related to joint and soft tissues, we can easily make a few examples:
For upper limbs: longhead or short head of biceps injuries, tennis elbow (humeral lateral epicondylitis), golf elbow (medial epicondylitis), carpal tunnel syndrome, subacromial bursitis, supraspinatus and deltoid muscle injuries.
Along the spine: splenius including cervices and capitis, trapezius, levator scapulae, neck and shoulder or nuchal area pain, muscle tension headache.
Back pain: from acute lumbar sprain and chronic strain, or caused by either degenerative change or nerve compression, pain that radiates to hip and lateral side of thigh.
In knee: patellar pain syndrome, chondromalacia, meniscus injury, MCL and LCL’s.
In foot: heel pain, plantar fasciitis, acute ankle sprain or Metatarsal syndrome (metatarsal phalangeal joints).
Picture here shows one important concept in Tension Point Therapy, that is the injury area will usually be avoided, at the same time to working on opposite part of the same muscle to reduce the aggravation.
We always carefully identify and give specific diagnosis of these muscular conditions and thoroughly discussed with our patient before we start any treatment.
