After 25 years of working with traditional modalities, we have discovered the most efficient system to correct your alignment and retrain your compensatory movement patterns to reduce injury and optimize functional movement.
The Science Behind Neurac
Neurac, short for Neuromuscular Activation, is a scientific treatment method that consists of therapeutic exercise in suspension slings. The goal of the Neurac method is to restore pain-free movement patterns and to improve function through high levels of neuromuscular activation.
Utilizing Redcord’s “bungee assistance” system, the body weight is supported throughout each movement pattern with slings and elastic bungee cords. This method allows us to evaluate and correct your compensations to not only address the area of injury or weakness, but everything connected to it.
For example, a client who is a swimmer may have pain in her elbow from overusing her shoulder. The shoulder compensation came from a tight neck that was caused by an imbalance in her hips. Thus, the weak link in the chain is her hip imbalance – which a traditional PT evaluation would be unlikely to find, let alone address. This cycle of dysfunction and pain will persist until her movement patterns and body alignment are corrected.
By adjusting the amount of resistance and neuromuscular challenge applied during Neurac exercises, we retrain the brain and body to turn on the right muscles at the right time with the right amount of force. Optimizing the quality of your movement patterns help to break the cycle of dysfunction and pain, and reduce your risk for injury in the future.
