We use the David Spine Concept (medical exercise equipment from Finland) to rehabilitate back, neck, shoulder, and knee muscles. It is a comprehensive evaluation and treatment concept for musculoskeletal disorders. The concept uses carefully targeted movement and controlled loading to reverse the deconditioning syndrome related to musculoskeletal pain.
Strong muscles protect. With musculoskeletal pain there is almost always muscle weakness. At Muscle IQ we can test specific back, neck, shoulder and knee muscle strength using our computerized David medical exercise equipment. (click for more info). The computerized measurment system captures mobility and strength in all movement planes. These values are compared to reference values matched to a patient's age, gender, height, and weight. This allows us to track progress in strength and range of motion of the spine. An individualized exercise program is generated based on these measurements. We believe a full recovery requires a return to normal neck muscle strength. With the test results from the David machines we can tell our patients how far they are from normal strength. We retest strength and range of motion at set intervals. We can objectively prove the gains our patients are making in strength with our testing reports. Your doctor or your insurance company will also like seeing your progress.
I have a lengthy, complicated medical history. I have spent years going from one physical therapy office to another. You know, ones where you get a sheet of exercises to do at home, 15 minutes on the total gym and a quick massage by the student tech of the week. NOT ANY MORE! I found Muscle I.Q.Physical therapy about 6 months ago and will never go to anyone else. They use an invidualized, thoughtful approach. The Dr.and his associates explain everything and make you feel like any question has an answer. They have state of the art machines that make working towards a healthy life fun. Everyone deserves this kind of care!! -Beth C.
