MESOTHERAPY AND CONTRACTURES
The contracture is different from the cramp because it is much longer. It affects certain parts of the body in particular (thighs, calves, buttocks, neck) and can be due to a protective contraction reflex during excessive stretching, to muscle fatigue or even be a defensive reaction linked to another trauma. (torticollis, sprain, etc.) Contracture is a state of muscular suffering with local dystonia not affecting an entire muscle but a few bundles of it, secondary to intensive physical activity (sport, DIY, gardening).
PHYSIOPATHOLOGY Muscular contraction occurring during exercise, non-resolving, which can last several days.
CLINICAL EXAMINATION The clinical examination is based on inspection, palpation, passive stretching, isometric tests. It will make it possible to determine the degree of damage and the anatomical character. Additional examinations are represented by scintigraphy which can be done early and especially ultrasound which is much less expensive, but you will have to wait between the sixth and tenth day for the hematoma to be collected.
- Mixed Techniques: Point by point (IDP) and topping (IDS).
- Main mixture: Lidocaine 1% + thiocolchicoside in IDP + IDS.
- Areas of application: Next to the contracted muscle area.
- Rhythm: D1, D8.
Recovery phase: D21 to D45
Start of dynamic muscular work, stretching and deep transverse massages of the scar.
Rehabilitation phase: 6 to 10 weeks
The return to sport is effective, with relearning of sporting gestures, neuromuscular reprogramming and work on physical condition.
