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.
We have the honor of sharing with you some hip rehab applications sent to us by physical therapist Bryce Taylor. Bryce shares with us:
"I have a unique opportunity to capture overhead views at my clinic and for the Core-Tex, this makes sense. I've been working with this gentleman for several hip-related cases to restore functional mobility and return him to competitive distance running. He has had surgeries for labral tears and hip impingement. In this case, the Core-Tex has aided in self-administered and guided multi-planar end range of motion of the hip and lower kinetic chain. I like that they can freely explore within the limits of their own subjective boundaries and that, I believe, can have more impact than passive motion."
Take this familiar arm position we use on the wall to mobilize the thoracic spine, add the patented motion of Core-Tex and you have a very unique and effective way to enhance scapular motion. This is also a great move to help mobilize the tissue inferior to the posterior shoulder joint.
Using the new Core-Tex Dual, we demonstrate how you can access lateral spinal flexion using the motion of the Core-Tex and the anchor options for the hands on both sides of the platform. The supine, unloaded position and reactivity of the platform allow you to access different segments of the spine during motion.
Choose to keep the motion dynamic, or hold for longer intervals with the upper body anchored and drive the motion to the same side repeatedly by driving rotation with the legs.
Use this incredible shoulder exercise for rehab or for warming-up your shoulders for throwing, hitting, tennis, golf, etc. We take the well known D2 PNF pattern and use it vertically with the rotational aspect of the Core-Tex. This is one of the most effective shoulder exercises you will ever do.
Use the Core-Tex platform as an environment to allow the user to create motion in the the joints and tissue of the foot and ankle. By pre-positioning the feet and hips, the rotation of the Core-Tex can authentically create these motions. No need for continual hands on work by a therapist when the Core-Tex can create and reinforce your work.
