How Can TheraFlex Help You?

Authoritive literature states that 95% of all back problems are of a mechanical nature. To Function correctly the spine must be supple and elastic, like the spine of a healthy teenager. As the spine loses supple elasticity, the joints in the lower back and base of the neck become increasingly overworked and stressed. Loss of supple elasticity is natural with time and age and is often greatly accelerated by poor posture and a sedentary lifestyle/job. It is worth remembering that the spine is a completely mechanical structure. A wonderful structure of bone, muscle and tissue; and the best way of treating back and neck problems is achieved by using and effective mechanical approach. The solution to back and neck pain is to restore the balance between supple elasticityand strength throughout the spine, therefore restoring mechanical efficiency. This eliminates the overstressing of the spinal joints in the neck and lower back. This is where the Theraflex system is very effective.

How Theraflex Works

The computerised equipment consists of a "bionic hand" with four pistons powered by compressed air, making it light, safe, efficient and more effective than the hands alone to restore mobility to the joints of the spine. The condition of every joint is felt through the handset, defining problem areas in the spine requiring attention. This enables therapists to work with speed, and an energy that would otherwise be impossible to achieve in the same amount of treatment time by conventional methods. In traditional manual therapy techniques, therapists use their fingers to apply a mobilising force directly to the fixed joints. Whilst the procedure is good in principle, it fails because the joints of the spine are much bigger and tougher than the joints of the fingers. Many therapists destroy their hands in the attempt but the task is hopeless. The procedure is slow and the results are far from adequate. The Theraflex mobilising technique differs to traditional manual therapy in that gentle, alternating pressure is applied over diagonally opposed transverse processes of adjacent vertebral pairs. Therefore, mobilisation is achieved through counter-rotational forces on adjacent vertebrae (as demonstrated below) and fixed or stiff vertebral pairs are gently moved through the normal range of motion.
