Healthy Backs computerized devices are each able to support the body while isolating one specific spinal movement. This enables the user to target the deeper layer of muscles responsible for spinal function. These muscles often do not function normally following pain and injury (Deconditioning cycle) and are difficult to target for rehabilitation without precision.
Patient-controlled isolated movements – with guided feedback from the computer screen attached to each device (showing range of movement and speed of movement) – enables specific, low impact exercises with increasing resistance over time as the muscles become stronger (Reconditioning cycle).
Stronger deep spinal muscles provide better dynamic support to each level of the spine, helping to reduce pain and improve quality of movement.
Based on your initially assessed pain and strength levels together with any reported history of spinal issues, a customised program is drawn up by your Exercise Physiologiest, working closely with our Physiotherapists. Once you begin your program, your strength, range and quality of movement is tracked for every individual exercise in each session. On-screen visual feedback helps guide and monitor you. Periodic re-assessment helps to show quantifiable progress in measured criteria with reference to your own starting scores and in comparision to norms for age, height, weight and gender.
Depending on your level of pain and strength of muscles, a program of sessions lasting between 6 – 12 weeks is generally recommended. Sessions are performed twice per week, fully clothed, and last approx 30-45 minutes each.
At the end of each session, a graphic analysis of your performance and progress is reviewed.
