- Most of patients who are suffering with chronic pain or cumulative injuries have a poor posture as well. By evaluating patients before and after the therapy program, we can demonstrate the improvement objectively and progressively.
Pain is a subjective discomfort sensation. Control of pain is an essential aspect of caring for the injured patient because sometimes active rehabilitation and exercise can be pretty daunting when patients are in a lot of pain. 1 or a combination of the following passive pain relieving techniques (modalities) may be used:
- Electrical Stimulation (e.g. TENS)
- Heat and/or cold therapy
- Manual manipulation therapy
All of above modalities are designed with one goal: providing enough pain relief to help you progress to an active exercise.
Redcord Sling System
Redcord emphasizes corrective exercises with high levels of neuromuscular stimulation to restore core strength, joint stability and function. Redcord surpasses most traditional forms of physical therapy because is addresses the source of a person’s health condition and not just symptoms.
Our therapist guides a patient through a series of exercises with specialized Redcord equipment, consisting of suspension ropes, harnesses and slings. Unweighted with bungees and slings, patients are able to exercise in just about any position and in a safe and completely painless manner.
Myofasical Release (MFR), which addresses the fascial system, is the essential part of Core Station PT program. Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body from head to foot. Trauma, poor posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excess pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures and/or organs. We can restore the efficiency of the neuromuscular elements and proper mechanical lengths of this tissues, thereby restoring the natural abilities of coordination, strength, power and unrestricted motion of our body.
Selective Functional Movement Screening
The SFMA is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.
When you are training in Redcord system, all of the exercises are performed in what is called an ‘unstable’ environment. This instability initiates activation of the body’s deep supporting muscles (e.g. core). These are muscles which are usually not subjected to load during traditional training in machines and are working as a cornerstone for your excellent performances.
