Spinal Remodelling & Realigning London
Everyday, we put stress on our spine, which can cause misalignments, wear and tear or unnecessary pressure on the disc material that protects it. Sitting down for long periods during the day, walking, running, sports injuries, and carrying objects, are all factors that put pressure onto the spine.
Spinal remodelling has been shown to reduce spinal stress by realigning your spine into its correct position. By correcting the spine in this way, it relieves pressure on your discs and helps the body to move in the best way. With correct spinal alignment, your spine stands the best chance of lasting longer.
How Does Spinal Remodelling Work?
During our detailed examination process, we’ll take an extensive history of your condition, carry out a series of physical tests and perhaps take x-rays. Our x-rays are taken standing up so we can see your natural spine alignment and any underlying conditions.
During the results session, we’ll discuss any problems with your spine in-depth, which treatments would suit you best, and to what extent spinal remodelling will work. Should there be any limiting factors that we’ve come across in the examination, a practitioner will explain the effect these will have on your overall results.
Types of Spinal Remodelling
Spinal remodelling only works because of the patient centred approach of combining three equally essential treatment methods:
- Specific Spinal Adjustment Techniques: During your treatment process, you may be recommended our shockwave therapy to correct spinal misalignments or improve the movement of your spine.
- Tailored Exercises and Stretches: Physical activity as part of your spinal injury rehabilitation process is extremely important. At ProBack, tailored exercises for your condition will only be given when you can perform them safely and effectively. The exercises will help to strengthen and support your spine, and target specific areas of weakness in the body. They are implemented to continue to improve your results at home.
- Spinal Orthotics: A key part of the spinal rehabilitation process is the use of a spinal orthotic (also known as a denneroll). These orthotics are used under close observation from one of our practitioners, so they are placed and used accurately. Once our practitioner is content that you can use the denneroll safely and effectively, it can be taken home and used daily for up to 20 minutes in order to correct spinal alignment. The dennerolls are only used if you have lost curves in the spine. They effectively help remodel the spine and bring those curves back.
- Vibration Therapy: Vibration therapy may be an effective step to add to your spinal remodelling treatment plan. Doing exercises on a vibration plate helps strengthen the muscles three to four times more effectively than alone. By using this therapy, muscles will become stronger, which will allow your body to effectively absorb more stress and pressure. This method was first discovered and applied by the Russians in their space programme. By strengthening their bodies using vibration therapy, the Russian astronauts were able to stay in space an impressive three and a half times longer than the Americans.
