With the help of a course of exercises on David medical simulators, we are consolidating the result of the primary treatment for a long time, and improve the strength and endurance of the deep muscles stabilizing the spine, including elimination of muscle asymmetry. Therefore, it is not possible to work deep muscles carefully and safely on conventional fitness equipment. The course of treatment must pass under the supervision of the attending doctor and rehabilitation professional.
A doctor performs a detailed examination of the patient's spine and refers to computer diagnostics of the patient's muscles. The patient undergoes primary diagnostics of muscle strength and mobility on David medical simulators under the supervision of rehabilitation professional. It helps to identify “a muscular profile” of the patient, and the individual treatment program is prescribed by the doctor and rehabilitation professional.
A minimum treatment course at the Institute of Vertebrology and Rehabilitation takes 5-10 days and includes a range of methods: medical massage, physiotherapy, spinal correction using “short lever” method, mandatory counseling and medical supervision.
A minimum treatment course consists of 12 sessions. 24 sessions are recommended to consolidate the results for a long time. The treatment duration is of great importance, as chronic back pain causes functional and structural changes in the tissues of spine and paravertebral structures, which takes time to recover. The treatment course is held under compulsory supervision of the doctor and rehabilitation professional.
After 4-6 sessions, an interim diagnostics of the patient’s state is carried out. A rehabilitation professional assesses the state of muscles in dynamics, the doctor conducts an interim consultation and adjusts treatment program as necessary.
After the interim consultations and examination of the patient, the doctor adjusts the treatment program together with the rehabilitation professional. Most often, the patient already feels pain reduction, the body becomes more coordinated, respectively, and he can be exposed to greater load. Continuation of treatment is aimed at maximizing the strength and endurance of the deep muscles that support the spine.
The final diagnostics already shows improved strength and mobility of the patient, elimination of muscle imbalance. The rehabilitation professional and doctor comment on the results of treatment in detail, give necessary recommendations.
A minimum course of treatment consists of 12 sessions on DAVID medical simulators under the supervision of an experienced doctor, rehabilitation professional and computer software EVE Professional.
A therapeutic session consists of a mandatory warm-up and preparation for load under the supervision of rehabilitation professional. Each approach to exercise is controlled by a rehabilitation professional, or by the Patient with the help of David simulator computer screen, where the patient sees all the necessary indicators at the time of the session. After each exercise and at the end of sessions a rehabilitation professional makes special stretching exercises with patients.
The graph shows the impact of the treatment course with the help of David. high-tech medical simulators. Already during the second half of the course of treatment the patient achieves a significant improvement in the condition. The first two sessions are aimed at improving the coordination of movements. The nervous system learns to re-control the movement more fully and intensely, because the patient's movements are restricted, and the coordination is misbalanced due to pain. During this period of “coordination”, the minimum load is recommended in the treatment program. During the period of "adaptation", from sessions 2 to 6, muscles adapt to more intense recommended load. Muscles get used to operate more efficiently. During the "strengthening period" from sessions 6 to 9, load is increased, according to the results of the interim testing and recommendations of the attending physician and recreation therapist. During the period of "normalization" from sessions 9 to 12 activity markedly pronounced therapeutic effect is observed, the level of pain is significantly reduced, levels of stamina and mobility are increased.
