The POLD method is a set of advanced techniques of physiotherapy scientific applied manually. His immediate goal is to relieve pain, but mostly and mainly solve that cause injuries.
POLD method: what it is
It is to make an oscillatory movement, manually, in soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.) and joints of the affected area, and those others with which relates. This oscillation causes the tissues change their metabolism, relax muscles and joint mobility is released.
From that state, maneuvers are applied to realign the joint position and regenerate damaged areas and thus eliminate inflammation, pain and finally the injury that caused it is resolved.
In most cases, it takes between three and five sessions to solve the problem, depending on whether it is more or less old. In very few cases it is to reach the 10 sessions, even in the most complicated, such as herniated discs. When pains are chronic, such as fibromyalgia, the patient usually needs a maintenance session per month and that the effects and welfare are maintained.
The method POLD is not painful, as it is a soft manual therapy, ie not crackle or maneuvers are performed very painful. Even people with fibromyalgia feel pain when they receive it.
In addition, treatment is affordable, since few sessions and the price is not high.
Benefits POLD method
It has been shown that the method is effective solving POLD injuries:
- Herniations and disc protrusions
- Sciatica and lumbago
- Grips and radioculopatías
- muscular overload and contractures
- Headaches and migraines
- Arthrosis column and extremities
- Limited mobility and stiffness
There are scientific research published in prestigious international journals, confirming the effectiveness of the method in injuries such as herniated discs, where most of the other techniques fail.
The scientific results of this method have been presented at numerous conferences worldwide. Currently taught in Spain and Latin America as graduate studies in some universities, it has the accreditation of the Ministry of Health as a special merit in the competitions for physiotherapist and is applied by physical therapists working with Olympic athletes in several countries and high-performance athletes.
