DeepTransverse Massage

The technique called Deep Transverse Massage or Deep Transverse Friction (FTP) was developed by Dr. Cyrix over 50 years ago when it began to spread the idea that the application of the treatments at the exact point of lesion was of great importance to the recovery of the injury.

Generally, in applying a voltage where only massage without injury, the direction or the direction in which it is performed is along the direction of the fibers. In performing the massage Transverse Deep application involves making a friction on soft tissues damaged in transverse direction to the damaged structures, and is called by the move deeper reaches layers below the skin and the cellular tissue to reach muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

The technique called Deep Transverse Massage or Deep Transverse Friction (FTP) was developed by Dr. Cyrix over 50 years ago when it began to spread the idea that the application of the treatments at the exact point of lesion was of great importance to the recovery of the injury.

What is?

Generally, in applying a voltage where only massage without injury, the direction or the direction in which it is performed is along the direction of the fibers. In performing the massage Transverse Deep application involves making a friction on soft tissues damaged in transverse direction to the damaged structures, and is called by the move deeper reaches layers below the skin and the cellular tissue to reach muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

The success of the application depends on the proper mobilization of tissues in a small, defined area, which is where the injury. It’s objective is to maintain and restore mobility of the fibers.

The mainstays of treatment

Cyrix stated at the time that the treatment consisted of three basic principles:
1. all pain comes from an injury
2. all treatment must reach the injury
3. all treatment should have a beneficial effect on injury

Effects

Its effect is mechanical and local type. No clause has on the body.

Operation

At the time a trauma or injury is tissue destruction by multiple structures break occurs. This causes an inflammatory reaction with hyperemia. If this injury is only restored with rest it may be that adhesions and scars that eventually can become calcified to form and consequently limit the correct contraction or muscle elongation, besides present with pain and acute and chronic inflammation.
If instead, the injury is treated with movement (FTP), in this case there is a regeneration achieve fibrils, inhibition of adhesion formation, generating a much more mobile scar and normal tissue activity

Objectives Massage Deep Transverse (Cyriax)

1 Maintain optimum mobility
2. Keep the movement of the injured structure
3. Inhibit the formation of adhesions, abnormal scars
4. Avoid formation of adhesions between the fibrils and the different tissues
5. Cause local hyperemia with analgesic to decrease pain
6. Facilitate the production of collagen tissue
7. Stimulate receptor systems through the nervous system.

About Deep Transverse Friction (FTP)

Deep Transverse Friction is a short and very local friction, which when applied to the point of pain to mobilize damaged tissues, is painful and unpleasant. Friction generates hyperemia to a restructuring of the fibers is achieved.

This friction is very common to see it applied in sports field or on the track, where many athletes suffer micro damage while they are active.

Indications
