Hima Dalal, head occupational therapist and founder of Vital Energy Wellness and Rehab Center, has traveled far and wide to Doha, Qatar to attend the 1st Annual World Conference on Groin Injuries in Athletes (November 1, 2014 – November 3, 2014). She was selected to present on Crystal Myofascial Release, an innovative technique that she has pioneered by combining complementary therapy and traditional occupational/physical therapy techniques to treat sports injuries.
The conference, hosted by Aspetar Sports, was held at the Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence Auditorium and featured international speakers from around the world, including those from the United States, Australia, The Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, and Qatar, just to name a few. Attendees included experts in sports and exercise medicine, physiologists, orthopedic surgeons, therapists, and professional sports trainers.
In her presentation, Hima showcased two different patient case studies on groin injuries where the patients both improved dramatically after receiving Crystal Myofascial Release treatment. She has had great success treating sports injuries other than groin injuries with this technique as well.
Hima is a board certified, licensed occupational therapist, energy medicine practitioner, and fibromyalgia specialist with over 30 years of experience. Her technique, Crystal Myofascial Release, also known as Crystal Myofascial Stretching, has proven perfect for patients who have not found results with traditional therapies and who have exhausted all other resources. Crystal Myofascial Release is where uses crystals during manual therapy to release the fascia, knead and manipulate the muscles, as well as work on joint mobilization and joint manipulation. It integrates complementary therapy with the traditional PT/OT approach. Aspects of many different common modalities were used in creating this technique. Some of these include muscle energy treatments as well as knowledge of
acupressure and acupuncture points. Benefits of Crystal Myofascial Release are decreased pain, decreased myofascial restriction, and increased range of motion. Because it also helps to release the emotional trauma that has been stored in the muscle due to muscle memory, it has been very effective for athletes with sports injuries, fibromyalgia patients, and infant patients.
