What is ERGON ISTM TECHNIC?
ERGON® Technique is an innovative therapeutic approach that combines static and dynamic manipulations of human body soft tissue mobilization by using a special clinical stainless steel equipment in order to obtain a more effectively treat on pathological conditions.
ERGON® techniques are applied to specific points of myofascial system stenosis and attachment which, when released, improve directly the functionality of the pathological area in few sessions.
As they slide on the tissues they act as bifurcations and so the therapist can more easily detect pathological constraints
What are the advantages of techniques?
Patients feel, during their treatment, shortened tissues relaxing and can immediately understand the difference after treatment. With this is achieved:
- Faster return to functionality,
- Increasing of elasticity and flexibility of stiff joints with minimal treatment sessions,
- Improvement of tendon mobility
- Reduce muscle spasm and adhesions
What are clinical indications?
A certified physiotherapist of soft tissue can effectively cure the majority of musculoskeletal and atherosclerotic lesions and pathologies (Table 1)
Table 1. Indicative pathological conditions used by Ergon Technique
- Frozen shoulder (Reduced tread bandwidth)
- Shoulder dislocation
- Elbow elbow (golf elbow)
- Tetanopathy, achilles, patella
- De Quervain’s syndrome
- Groin pain
- Lupine-like tape syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sprained ankle
- Trigger points
- Myopathogenic pain syndromes
- Muscle spasms (Reducing edema, muscle fiber alignment)
- Improves surgical incisions through scar tissue management
- Apoptosis muscle syndrome
- Painful pain syndrome
- Back pain
The therapeutic effect of ERGON® TECHNIQUE remains for several days and, when combined with other therapeutic techniques (stretching and functional stabilization techniques), is established as a permanent technique. The techniques can be used in combination with other forms of therapy such as Tecar therapy.
