Making Backs Better with Physiotherapy
At Spinefit we offer a state of the art comprehensive treatment approach for the relief of back pain. Our treatment approach targets the cause of back pain, known to be a combination of instability caused by weakened back muscles. Strengthening these important muscles with our MedX Lower Back Strengthening spinal conditioning program and by reducing intradiscal pressure with the PROTEC Floating Lumbar Decompression Therapy they have been shown to significantly reduce or eliminate pain in 4 out of 5 individuals.
Recent studies have demonstrated that deconditioned weakened muscles are a significant factor for people suffering with ongoing chronic back and neck pain.
We apply specific intensive spinal strengthening programs, and by using the MedX Lower Back Strengthening system and PROTEC Floating Lumbar Decompression Therapy, strength and stability may be restored to the spine to reduce or eliminate pain in as little as 12 weeks.
Proven results: All exercise is not created equal
PROTEC Floating Lumbar Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy has been extensively researched and has been shown to assist in unloading the lower lumbar spinal segments, help reduce intradiscal pressure and rehydrate damaged intervertebral discs. This therapy provides an effective treatment option for patients suffering from bulging or herniated lumbar discs or worn lumbar facet joints problems.
Medx Lower Back Strengthening
The MedX Corporation has spent many decades in research and development at an estimated cost of $40 million to perfect their unique, computerised testing and exercise based machines. Over the last 30 years, the Universities of Florida and San Diego, along with various orthopedic clinics around the world, have published compelling research that shows specific spinal exercise treatment using the MedX program can help reduce or eliminate back pain in 4 out of 5 back pain sufferers.
The MedX Programmes have been used in private clinics and hospitals throughout Europe and the US for over 30 years, has been incorporated in treatments at Beecroft Physiotherapy in Sydney for over 15 years and has been at SpineFit Osteopathy for nearly 10 years.
At the Spinefit Osteopathy we use and recommend the Medx Lower Back Strengthening as it is strongly evidence based, backed by years of research, and is incredibly efficient.
With a minimum regime of just one set of 10-15 repetitions performed in a slow fashion the exercise builds not only strength but high levels of endurance.
It is interesting to note that research shows endurance maybe more effective than overall strength when it comes to back pain.
Research has shown for best results the MedX Spinal conditioning program should be continued for 12 weeks. We initially recommend clinical sessions twice a week for 4 weeks, graduated down to once a week thereafter for the remaining 8 weeks. Great results are also achieved at a session rate of twice per week for 6 weeks.
