Overview of Muscle Fiber Methodology and S.T.R.E.T.C.H. (Stretching Technique Rehabilitating Exploring Treating Comprehensive Health) LLC

Muscle Fiber Methodology (MFM) is a unique combination of methods incorporating Muscle Fiber Manipulation, Passive Stretching and Client-Specific Exercises that allows clients to reach optimal Performance.

The mission is to provide a practiced group of muscle fiber manipulating methods and passive stretches that creates a wellness-oriented personal care for everyone including busy professionals, athletes, gamers and soccer moms. These muscle fiber manipulating methods and passive stretches targets individual muscles, helps to correct, promotes healing and relaxes all the muscles in the body without pain. The methods and stretches help to promote the body’s ability to manage physical stress as well as enhancing the clients coping mechanisms to better regulate any potential or realized negative impact. A growing number of individuals today choose not to allow stress and pain to compromise their good health.

S.T.R.E.T.C.H. (Stretching Technique Rehabilitating Exploring Treating Comprehensive Health) LLC invents devices that passively stretches muscles in the human body. Everyone develops tight pelvic/hip muscles, tight IT (Iliotibial) band, knee problems and tight lower leg muscles because of how we naturally use our bodies during work, play and rest. Muscle imbalances are the main cause of structural problems in our bodies.

Whether we stand, walk, run, bike, dance, jump, practice yoga or just hang out on your couch, these action are all associated with abduction of the thigh at the hip, lateral rotation of the thigh at the hip and eversion/abduction of the foot at the ankle.

Due to repetition of these actions, the muscles or muscle fibers that perform these tasks becomes short/overly contracted. These muscles then pull on that part of the skeletal body that it’s attached to (low back, pelvis, knees, etc.). These muscle imbalances can lead to constant debilitating pain and even surgeries to our neck, shoulders, back, pelvis, hips, knees and ankles.

Muscle Fiber Methodology, S.T.R.E.T.C.H. LLC And What They Offer

Muscle Fiber Methodology offers these people a systematic and effective approach to treating various muscular problems.

Muscle Fiber Methodology deals with the correction, strengthening and prevention of disorders involving locomotor structures of the body, especially those impacting muscles, joints and other supporting structures of the body.

When the musculoskeletal system, which allows movement of our bodies becomes out of balance, we develop various soft tissue disorders. These range from simple holding patterns, muscle spasms, strains or sprains to more complex problems such as nerve entrapment that creates an imbalance in the entire body. It’s also common to see clients with temporary conditions triggered by work or home related activities, sports, exercise (or lack of), weight gain and repetitive stress injuries. Musculoskeletal dysfunction is experienced regardless of gender or age, and it becomes more symptomatic as we grow older.

S.T.R.E.T.C.H. LLC's first device is LLAD

Lower Lateral Alignment Device pronounced as “lad”. LLAD is designed to passively stretch muscles of the pelvis, hips and lower leg that do abduction and lateral rotation without the assistance of the user. This device will be used when sitting, and with the help of a strap (Velcro), it can also be used when lying on your bed or sofa. LLAD can easily be set to the desired stretch required by the user, placed where they sit mostly (workplace or home) and put your feet in the footprints mounted on the device. The user sits comfortable while LLAD works. The user will hold that position for just 15 minutes three to four times a day. The next device will be designed to stretch the Quads passively.

Muscle Fiber Methodology and LLAD as a treatment.

With the introduction of the Muscle Fiber Methodology as a treatment, these methods that focuses on muscle fiber manipulations, will help us to assess and evaluate muscular strengths, weaknesses and compensations (pain avoidance from an old or new injury) within the body. From these evaluations and assessments, we can develop client specific muscle fiber manipulation and exercise techniques that targets and utilize all of the client’s muscles, skeletal system, joints, fascia and other supporting structures creating a support system that will promote correction and/or prevention of muscular disorders of the body.

These client specific exercises will also create new muscle memories to correct muscle imbalances caused by injuries. This approach does not facilitate compensation, but actually encourages each and every fiber of the muscles within a muscle group to fire together as a unit.

LLAD Can Help

LLAD can help to prevent serious muscle imbalances, help to correct muscle imbalances, help to maintain healthy muscles and promote a proper posture.

Everyone develops tight pelvic/hip muscles, tight IT (iliotibial) bands, and tight lower leg muscles because of how we naturally use our bodies, which in turn causes a variety of structural problems. Whether we stand, walk, run, bike, dance, jump, practice yoga or just hang out on your couch, these actions are all associated to abduction of the thigh at the hip, lateral rotation of the thigh at the hip and eversion/abduction of the foot at the ankle. Due to repetition of these actions, the muscles or muscle fibers that performs these tasks becomes short/overly contracted, and pulls on the part of the skeletal body that it is attached to (pelvis, knees low back etc). These imbalances can cause problems that can lead to surgeries.

Stretching is Important

Stretching is very important when correcting muscle imbalances in our bodies. The stretches performed can be passive or active. Various stretches have been developed/designed to stretch different muscles in our bodies for example:

  • Yoga (active stretches designed to be done by the individual)
  • Muscle manipulation/massage (muscles passively stretched by someone other than the individual)

There are also devices invented/created to help us stretch muscles, but they all fail effectively to stretch the abductors and lateral rotators of the thigh at the hip and abduction/eversion of the foot at the ankle passively.
