Phase 5 uses the most trusted functional movement assessment tool used by leading professionals – Functional Movement Screen (FMS). The FMS is a screening tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain complaint or musculoskeletal injury. This screening is not intended to diagnose orthopedic problems but rather to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals.
Fascial manipulation is one of the newest and most exciting manual therapy techniques offered. It is changing the way providers look at and treat injuries and dysfunction. The gold standard in fascial manipulation comes from the Stecco family, sometimes called the “First Family of Fascia.” The Stecco Fascial Manipulation method was researched and invented by Drs. Luigi Stecco, Carla Stecco, and Antonio Stecco (medical doctors in Italy).
Cupping is a traditional form of treatment used for centuries, but more recently, it has shown benefits regarding sport-specific injuries and disorders. As a result, it is starting to be incorporated into sports medicine and rehabilitation. The use of negative pressure caused by the suction (instead of compression or massage) assists in the treatment of pain or stubborn conditions, muscles strains, inflammation, and many non-athletic disorders.
Also known as “scraping,” IASTM is a form of soft tissue mobilization incorporating a tool. The instruments preferred by Phase 5 are HawkGrips. When soft tissue such as muscle is injured, cross-linkages develop in the tissue, thus decreasing strength, reactivity, and limiting the range of motion.
Normatec is the ultimate recovery device. The technology can increase circulation, improve mobility for those who work out regularly, train for competitions or races, experience swollen legs from traveling frequently, stand for long hours on the job, or suffer from inflammation, sore muscles, and other circulatory issues.
When using a percussion tool, the preferred choice of Phase 5 is the Hyperice Hypervolt Massage Gun, which the provider uses to simulate a deep tissue or vibration massage. The technique works by delivering rapid strikes or blows to the fatigued muscle or soft tissue to increase blood flow, increase range of motion, and provide pain relief from post-workout soreness.
Phase 5 incorporates the use of two electrical stimulation devices to help facilitate muscle recovery. These are not TENS units that are used primarily for pain. Instead, these Compex and Marc Pro units stimulate muscle contractions, whereas TENS units stimulate pain nerve receptors.
RockTape is a kinesiology tape used by Phase 5 due to its flexibility and greater adhesiveness than other brands. Kinesiology taping is a form of athletic taping that allows for stabilizing muscles and joints during injury recovery. This extra support helps the person compete, work, and enjoy daily life activities with significantly less pain while restoring muscular strength. It also can improve lymphatic drainage and circulation to promote healing.
