I do not even know what it is…
Brett McQueen loves Athletic Training and nerdy stuff. He suggested we talk about Dermonueromodulation. I am learning right along with you.
What is Dermonueromodulation?
Well using my medical terminology i believe Dermonueromodulation goes like this:
Dermo – Skin
Nuero – Nerve
Modulation – Change
But beyond that I am really at a loss.
A quick google search brings up sites like:
or this YouTube video:
How Has Brett Been Using DNM?
Had a cardiac surgeon in pain that prevented him from completing a full surgery.
For three years the doctor had been seeing pain doctors, chiropractors, orthopedics and the works.
After three visit with Brett addressing the threatened tissue and the muscular dysfunction the doctor was pain free for the first time in a while.
Does this apply to most Athletic Trainers?
WE already do some sort of Dermonueromodulation with each evaluation.
This is a great tool to help us slow down and allow our touch to be part of the healing process.
If you have an injury that the patient is hesitant to relax or allow you to touch then try giving the area a “warm hug” with your hands and allowing the sensation to alter the brain patterns.
