What is Trigenics®?

Revolutionary Treatment Methodology in Musculoskeletal Care


TRIGENICS® is a neurological muscle assessment, treatment and training system which reprograms the way the brain communicates with the body. This technique can instantly relieve pain, increase strength and movement, and enhance performance. It is currently practiced by over 2000 doctors, therapists, and trainers in 25 countries worldwide.

Mark Lin, our principal therapist, is the first Podiatrist in Australia to be trained and specialized in this unique neuro-muscular treatment system in the lower limb. The complex procedures used in Trigenics® retrain the way the brain communicates its movement and/or pain signals with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints of the body. The beneficial effects are measurable, long-lasting and often instantaneous that can be seen immediately.


“The Missing Element” of Musculoskeletal Care

Reconnecting the brain and the body


When a joint, tendon, muscle or ligament suffers damage, stress or an injury, their nerve sensors (proprioceptors) send improper or false signals which confuse the brain. The brain responds by sending false controlling signals to the muscles and tendons. These muscles then become neurologically tight or weak causing dysfunctional joint movement through a process known as “neurological inhibition”.If left uncorrected, this leads to weak links and abnormal muscle pull patterns in the movement chain, resulting in chronic pain, re-injury, deterioration and/or decreased athletic performance.


Often these improper controlling signals of muscles cannot be fully corrected with traditional physical therapies. Muscles that have been neurologically inhibited could not be strengthened effectively with normal exercises and stretches, (this is why you can stretch a muscle every day and it still always feels tight!). If the sensors of the tightened muscles are not corrected to begin with, the foot and ankle can quickly become restricted again following any soft tissues release or joint mobilisation/manipulation. The nervous system must first be reset to allow other treatment to work the way they should. Trigenics® correct muscular length and strength imbalances for potent restoration of function and relief of pain.


We strengthen and lengthen every pair of muscles in your lower body that is neurologically weak and tight and causes dysfunctional body movement.

How Does Trigenics® work?

Your Trigenics® Practitioners at Footwork Podiatry are fully trained to be able to identify neurological inhibition. Once assessed, we will start to manipulate and redirect your nerve signals to effectively “reset” the way your brain communicates with your muscles and body.



Trigenic® applies three treatment techniques simultaneously to achieve a much greater therapeutic and training enhancement effect than if only one was applied. The procedures involve combing resistive exercise, muscle nerve-sensor stimulation/manipulation, and bio-feedback breathing. It is a hands-on interactive treatment where both the practitioner and patient working together to achieve the desired outcomes.

The unique Trigenics® combination significantly accelerates healing and often helps where all else has failed!

We combine Trigenics® with a number of treatment techniques for a cumulative effect on the nervous system which amplifies the therapeutic effect and enhances treatment outcome, it is referred to as a “multi-modal” treatment system at Footwork Podiatry.

We Can Help

Trigenics® is remarkably effective in providing a reprieve from neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, chronic pain syndromes, all forms of tendonitis, sprain/strain injuries, and muscle spasm.

Trigenics® can help with athletes who are struggling to advance in their training to achieve breakthrough performance outcomes, by “switching on” the dysfunctional muscles and eliminating restrictions in the body. This results in amplified strength and increased range of motion and balance.


Trigenics® is safe, gentle and non-forceful hands-on technique that can be used effectively on a broad range of patients including children and seniors. It has been found very effective in children to improve their posture and restoring proprioception in seniors to improve their balance.
If you are suffering from chronic physical pain and/or movement impairments, your Trigenic practitioner can help.
