By dictating the user position on the platform, you can target specific motions of the lumber spine and the lower thoracic spine that will improve motion and stability. These lower threshold moves are excellent for the patient or athlete currently experiencing lower back pain. The subtle, fluid motions of the platform can reduce the threat and encourage safe motion. The user can perform completely independently of the therapist or trainer, allowing for ongoing motor learning and movement confidence.
Limited internal hip rotation has been associated with lower back pain as the lumbar spine is subjected to rotational motions it is not designed for. Using Core-Tex in a functionally loaded position, can produce immediate results in internal hip rotation range of motion.
You can't treat thoracic mobility like hip, or shoulder or ankle mobility. The hip, shoulder and ankle are individual joints. The thoracic spine is major body segment with multiple joints involved, plus the neurologically sensitive diaphragm.
