Neurofunctional Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique. Very fine acupuncture needles are inserted into neurofunctional sites around the body and can be stimulated with electricity. This helps regulate abnormal activity of different body systems such as the nervous and endocrine system as well as regulating pain syndromes. Neurofunctional acupuncture is a unique form of acupuncture, as your practitioner will use their knowledge of neuroanatomy to insert the needles in specific sites to treat your injury.
The hamstrings are so important. And often weak and tight.
In this video, Mat is treating one of the four hamstring muscles in the leg - the long head of the biceps femoris. The reason this muscle is so important is that it attaches the pelvis down to the lower leg at the head of the fibula, which is a very important joint in the body. This system is also going to have an influence down to the ankle via the fibula and its related muscles. Essentially this joint connects the pelvis, knee, and ankle!
When we simulate this area, you can see in the video that we are getting rotation all the way down into the lower leg.
Treatment of this area helps with:
- ankle and foot problems
- knee problems
- hip problems
- improve mobility with most sports that involve running and walking
