So how does it work?

Find the damaged structure based on the location of your pain.

Empty

If you know where the pain is, typically you can find a structure that is damaged due to the fact that it limits the function of the body; for example: a limited range of motion in the neck, a weak hand grip, etc. Heal&Go methods answer the question "What hurts?", and are able to successfully locate the injured body part 80% of the time. On this basis, Heal&Go offers the best solution to treat the source of pain. The app will also provide alternative ways to move, that neither restrict necessary basic muscle function nor cause further pain in the affected muscle.

Our methods

Therapeutical and rehabilitation methods are chosen by a rule to give you at
east one alternative that can be used for any phase of your health problems.
There are these methods included in Heal&Go application.

Pain and swelling relieving positioning

It's not enough to just put your foot on a foot stool! There are many ways how to fix pain and swelling. This method is based on the correction of joint position, soft tissue tension and lymph circulation by body part positioning and thanks to the use of supporting gadgets.

Antigravity (AGR) pain relief, muscle relaxation and swelling relief 

AGR anti-gravity exercise workout. It activates dormant muscles, helps to develop the appropriate muscle firing patterns, improve motion pattern and decrease a risk of overuse. Moreover, it can build durability and strength by adding more body weight resistance without adding pressure on the joints. For example, AGR exercises as simple as the squat and push-up not only stabilize the core and buttock muscles but also strengthen the inner thighs and the arms.

Postisometric relaxations (PIR) and facilitations (PIF) 

There is a fine line between lengthening muscles by gently stretching them, and elongating them to the point of triggering the stretch reflex. Post-isometric relaxation(PIR) is a technique designed to relax tight muscles without initiating this reflex. It is helpful in reducing muscle spasms and increasing range of motion. Post-isometric relaxation(PIF) is a technique designed to the early strengthening of weakened muscles without initiating this reflex.

Hot/Cold pain, inflammation and stiffness therapy

There is often confusion following an injury concerning whether to apply cold therapy, whether to warm the area or whether combine them. The answer depends on the type of injury you have sustained. And there is a guideline included in Heal&Go app for you.

Soft tissue techniques

Soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains, are common. Soft-tissue mobilization therapy is used to treat some kinds of soft tissue injuries. Dysfunctional soft tissues are either too short and tight or too long and weak. These techniques are used to retrain correct joint movement, relax tense muscles, reduce scar tissue, stretch the fascia and lengthen fascia. It’s a type of manual therapy.

 

Joint and spine self-therapy mobilizations by professor Lewit

Joint mobilization techniques focus on attaining a normal range of pain-free joint motion. Most techniques can be regained by an experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapist, but professor Lewit as one of the founders of joint mobilization had found a group of mobilization technique for self-therapy. These techniques are very gentle and pain-free options. The old crunch and munch, click and pop techniques are thankfully a thing of the past!

 

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) diagonal patterns by Dr. Kabat

PNF uses the body’s proprioceptive system to facilitate or inhibit muscle contraction. PNF is divided into strengthening/stretching techniques and patterning. The ultimate goal is to improve movement patterns and avoid imbalances. PNF works great as a treatment, but also as prevention of soreness.

Open and closed chain exercises for joint stabilization, optimal neuromuscular control, and early strengthening

Physical therapists, chiropractors, and personal trainers use kinetic chain exercises to help with injury prevention and recovery, body sculpting, and performance enhancement.

Both are effective for strengthening and rehabilitation objectives. Closed-chain exercises tend to offer more "functional" athletic benefits because of their ability to recruit more muscle groups and require additional skeletal stabilization. Open chain exercises tend to isolate a single muscle group and a single joint.

 

Plyometric activities (Therabands tubing, exercise balls, little weight and free weights exercise)

Plyometrics used to be called "jump training." It's a technique that you can use in many different ways. This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" manner. You can do plyometrics to help train any activity that uses explosive movements. It’s a fun alternative to an everyday strength-training workout that boosts your muscle power, strength, balance, and agility.

Breathing exercises by Brugger

Poor Posture (bending forward, backward or sideways) invites distorted, restricted, shallow breathing and a host of other problems including increased potential for depression, back injuries and low back pain.

Breathing into your back gives you access to a strong supported middle and can reduce pain in your neck and shoulders.   Breathing properly is a valuable tool and one of the basic foundations for healthy movement habits, and improved overall health and wellness.

The spine is intimately connected with the respiratory diaphragm, and understanding their symbiotic relationship will help steer your posture improvement in the right direction. Breathing exercises help rearrange the tension patterns of the spine from the inside-out and provide a more efficient lattice for the diaphragm to elongate and contract upon.

Active spine stabilization exercises by prof. Janda

The active spine stabilization exercises include a range of exercises that typically progress from static (lying) to dynamic (standing or jumping), from resisting gravity to resisting additional outside force from predictable to unpredictable movements and from individual components of a movement to the complete range of motion in a movement.Lumbar stabilization exercises were shown to improve pain, disability, and kinesophobia during lower back pain episodes in the clinical studies.

Early strengthening exercises

Early strengthening exercises are designed to help you optimize the strength and coordination of the muscle groups These exercises are mostly isokinetic and are used in the early phase of the rehabilitation program to improve stability and strength, fix symptoms, and recover functions. The nice thing about these exercises is that you can do them by yourself and can adjust your rate of progress according to what is most comfortable for you.

Kinesiotaping self-therapy patterns

The Kinesio taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesio taping can be applied in a variety of patterns with different therapeutical effects.

Isotonic dumbbell/kettlebell exercises

An isotonic exercise forces muscles to carry a static weight throughout a range of motion. All isotonic exercise features resistance. Forcing the muscles to strain against this resistance builds strength and power. Isotonic exercise doesn’t require any expensive equipment.

School of the
Back-Pain Therapy

A back school is an educational program that teaches you practical information about back care, posture, body mechanics, back exercises, and how to prevent long-term back problems. It gives you the tools for self-care, which may improve how well you manage back pain and prevent back injuries. It is important to get advice before doing back exercises as back injuries could be made worse by doing them in the wrong way.
