Body Tempering In Collierville, Germantown, & Hernando

Body Tempering is an emerging technique in the field of physical therapy. As a technique designed for strengthening and healing, it offers an unconventional yet effective method for managing and reducing chronic and acute pain.

What Is Body Tempering?

Body Tempering is a mechanical loading technique that involves the use of weighted cylinders rolled over the body. These cylinders, referred to as ‘tempering rollers,’ apply sustained pressure on the body’s muscles, tendons, and fascia, stimulating physiological responses that promote healing and build resilience. This approach is geared towards reducing injury risk, speeding up recovery time, and enhancing overall physical performance.

The Science Behind Body Tempering

The science behind Body Tempering is rooted in the basic principles of physiology. By applying consistent, weighted pressure, it stimulates the Golgi tendon organs (sensory receptors located in tendons) which respond to changes in muscle tension. This interaction influences muscle relaxation and can alleviate muscle stiffness and pain.

Furthermore, Body Tempering promotes myofascial release, a therapy that focuses on relieving pain by easing tension in the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds muscles and other body parts. By triggering the body’s natural repair mechanisms, this therapy can aid in resolving chronic pain conditions and injury recovery.

Benefits Of Body Tempering In Physical Therapy

1. Improved Flexibility and Mobility

Body Tempering has been shown to increase the range of motion and flexibility, essential factors in both injury prevention and rehabilitation. It does this by improving tissue extensibility and reducing muscle tightness.

2. Accelerated Injury Recovery

By stimulating the body’s natural healing response, Body Tempering can help speed up recovery from various injuries. It improves blood flow to affected areas, delivering necessary nutrients for healing while also aiding in the removal of waste products.

3. Enhanced Athletic Performance

Athletes and physically active individuals can also benefit from Body Tempering. It can improve muscle function, increase strength, and enhance endurance, allowing athletes to perform at their peak for longer periods.

After falling off of a ladder and spending 8 days in Trauma ICU I rolled into Pittman PT with my walker, my aspen neck collar, my Jewett body brace, and I was in extreme pain.  I suffered a broken neck, 3 breaks in my spine, and 3 broken ribs.  On day one Jeff asked me what my expectations were and I really had none – the future wasn’t looking great.  The Pittman team designed a program for me that carefully brought me along the path of recovery and restored my confidence and abilities. I am forever grateful to Pittman PT and I am most especially grateful for Brad,  Krista, and Jeff who cared for me physically and mentally throughout this journey.  Being able to walk, sit, stand, and drive to work again is great, but being able to lift and hold my grandson again is priceless.  Thank you all.
