As runners we have many different tools of our trade. From foam rollers, compression gear, lacrosse balls, physio appointments, massage therapists, chiropractors, yoga, tai chi, ice baths, supplements, high-end running shoes, coMra-Therapy and so on. In each of these we look for ways to maintain healthy and injury free to continue pursuing our passion of running.
I am now going to properly introduce you to a life changing solution that I have found invaluable in overcoming some serious injuries and running conditions that would have otherwise proved difficult to recover from. Now, knowing that a tool is just that, a tool, it’s all in the manner of how one uses such and makes the most of what is in front of them. I mention this because knowing the stubbornness of runners firsthand I need to share that life is a natural gradual process of evolution and running is no different. This means, even though coMra-Therapy will cut most injury healing times in half, compared to only using the R.I.C.E technique espoused by most, one will still need to see through proper rehabilitation strengthening exercises and appropriate rest.
After a day of adding some additional miles to my training regimen, I noticed an ache in my knee that made walking a bit uncomfortable. That evening I proceeded to treat it with my Delta Pro Medical Terminal as I didn’t want to take any days off for it to normalize nor did I want it to progress further. And it worked out exactly as I wanted it to as my training program continued without a hitch.
Recuperation from Injury
I recently developed my first case of plantar faciitis. One thing I’ll state upfront is that having the ability to effectively treat many of my sports’ conditions at home has made me quite bold about training through certain injuries. I do this especially in the case of grade 1 muscle strains where I’ll return the following day to running with a toned down approach in terms of a shorter stride and slower cadence all the while treating the affected area with coMra. I did the same with the plantar faciitis injury because at first I didn’t know it was plantar faciitis, being my first time experiencing it. Not knowing exactly what was the problem with my foot, I ended up training on it for 3 days one of which included a 10 mile run. This was the second day I trained on it, the first being a strength and conditioning circuit including tuck jumps and many more high impact movements. And the best part was, it was getting better! Well, that was up until I did the 10 mile run. LOL My bad!!!! After that run, I took two running days off (I cross train) and then I did a nice run set which was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Realizing that I want to have this issue heal fully, I decided to only cross train around it and treat my foot with my Delta.
A week later I ran a total of 10 miles at varying speeds. Now, to be fair, I did notice the area was a bit tender the evening of this 10 mile day and decided that on top of coMra a lacrosse ball under foot, rolling back and forth, would add an additional healing dynamic with its gentle, yet firm, rolling motions. The combination was magic! Like I mention above, the extent of a tool’s efficacy is all in the manner of how you use it. Furthermore, builders don’t just use one tool when they are constructing something. Instead, they employ an assortment of tools to accomplish their work from nails and hammers to power tools and cranes; running is no different. I liken coMra to the high-end power tools that get the job done more effectively and efficiently when used under a thorough rehabilitation program.
Being an active father, and married to an active woman, we have raised to very active boys. Now boys will be boys, pushing their limits to times of physical harm. Case in point is an abrasion my eldest attained by doing his natural freerunning/parkour practice at the park. The two images on the right side of this picture collage are from February 28, 2015 and March 1st, 2015 (1 day!). As you can clearly see, the healing that took place was rapid. We only cleaned the wound properly with soap and water and then administered a 3 minute treatment on the Delta 1000Hz setting. And that was all!
The 1000Hz setting is used for superficial conditions of the skin. The Delta also has a 5Hz setting – for deeper penetration, 50Hz setting for medium depth penetration, and a Variable setting which cycles through the above mentioned frequencies and where it is preferable to reach various depths.
The speedier healing time also occurs in a similar vein with internal injuries for any tear, strain or sprain. Times do vary when it comes to acute or chronic conditions and taking into account the type of tissue involved. So, be patient, give your body love and care and enjoy the ride.
How does it work?
As complex as it might sound to some, this is a simple therapeutic approach that is very easy to use. Basically, coMra-Therapy works only by supporting the body to heal itself. In other words, the body has the intelligence and the capacity to heal itself, what coMra does is provide an energetic stimulus the cells understand and use, then the work is done by the innate ability of each specialized unit of the body. This is primarily why coMra-Therapy is considered a holistic modality with no harmful side-effects. It doesn’t change anything, move anything around, or alter the body in any way. As the radiances are absorbed by the body, the most notable effect is increased ATP, the energy currency of the cells, via natural cellular metabolic pathways, and here it is plain to see how just this process alone can induce quicker healing times for an assortment of conditions. This is just one area in how coMra works, to learn more please visit the Radiant Life Technologies website.
I truly hope this information helps you become a healthier and more vibrant natural athlete. And remember, above all else, the most important part in healing, training, and life, is belief in Self, which is the true limit not the sky.
