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 spinal conditioning program has 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 use specific intensive spinal strengthening programs, using the MedX system, that has been proven to restore strength and stability to the spine to reduce or eliminate pain in as little as 12 weeks.
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.
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.
Spinal Manual Therapy plus Spinal Rehabilitation equals Results
Proven results: All exercise is not created equal
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.
