Matrix Repatterningis a gentle form of Structural Therapy based on the restoration of cellular structure and elasticity through the use of specifically targeted manual treatment, which releases mechanical tension.
Matrix Repatterning has been recognized as an effective form of therapy in sports medicine, and is currently in use with several professional sports organizations and with Olympic athletes in Canada and Great Britain. Clinical evidence has been mounting that measurable cellular improvement is being achieved through these techniques.
Matrix Repatterning is currently being practiced by chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, and various other medical specialists around the world, to treat a variety of structural conditions, including back, neck, shoulder, hip and knee pain, headache (including migraine), carpal tunnel syndrome, gatro-esohageal reflux (GERD), snoring and sleep apnea, and TMJ syndrome among others. In addition, patients who have undergone Matrix Repatterning treatment have achieved improvements in other areas of the body affected by traumatic injury. Recently, clinical evidence is suggesting that Matrix Repatterning treatment for head injury, results in measurable neurological and cognitive improvement subsequent to TBI.
A New Understanding of the Mechanism of Injury
Matrix Repatterning assessment and treatment is based on the alteration of the electrical properties of tissue, as a result of common strain and impact injurie. Impact injury, for example, is thought to be more easily absorbed by the more dense fluid-filled structures, such as internal organs and the cranium (head and brain), as well as osseous structures (bone) . Therefore, many of the symptoms associated with the soft tissues, such as muscles, fascia and joints, may in fact be influenced by these deeper, denser structures. Recent evidence is demonstrating that cellular injury leads to electromechanical changes causing inflammation and enlargement of internal organs and bone, leading to mechanical stress on the more superficial structures, which produce symptoms. Matrix Repatterning is usually directed to the deeper structures (bone and the deep fascia associated with the internal organs), which are considered to be the source of many of clinical presentations previously thought to reside in the superficial structures alone.
Traumatic Brain Injuries often involves direct injury to the head or indirect injury by way of spinal trauma. Head injury affects the boney plates of the skull, as well as the fluid compartment surrounding the brain itself. Matrix Repatterning Practitioners are trained to accurately locate the effects of these injuries and to apply a gentle and precise form of manual pressure to create a piezo-electrical effect, which releases mechanical stress within these tissues. Matrix Repatterning has demonstrated clinical effectiveness in restoring the structural and mechanical properties of the body, including the spine and the skull, leading to a profound and lasting normalization of structure and function.
Patients from all walks of life, from professional athletes to medical professionals, and young children, have experienced significant levels of improvement in functional capacity, the reduction of pain, as well as relief from many of the consequences of traumatic brain injury. Further research to determine the potential of Matrix Repatterning is being actively pursued.
