Redcord Neurac Therapy
Suspension Excercise for Improved Results
Now @ FROGSPT in Scottsdale Arizona, Redcord is a unique and effective concept for functional training. Carefully designed training using body weight and slings is at the core of the concept. A unique blend of applied scientific knowledge, patented equipment and guided advice from FROGS Physical Therapy ensures the Redcord system gets results.
Redcord bridges the gap between performance oriented training and rehabilitation from injury with its holistic approach. Watch the following video to hear from Redcord patients and to learn about their life changing results with Redcord.
FROGS owner and physical therapist Andrew Clary MS, MPT, ATC, was one of the first 12 certified Redcord therapists in the U.S.
Science shows that pain and/or inactivity can disturb signals sent to the muscles from the brain. This disturbance can lead to impaired muscle interaction causing some muscles to be overloaded and painful. The method includes testing procedures, called Neurac Testing, to identify dysfunctions and muscular imbalances. Neurac Testing is systematically examining the body to identify weaknesses in the muscle chains. If a weakness is identified it is called a Weak Link. Neurac Treatment focuses on correcting the Weak Links thereby reducing the strain on the overloaded muscles. Often immediate pain relief and/or improved function can be achieved.
Redcord suspension exercises are effective and useful for anyone who would like to improve their daily function. The exercises are used by therapists, ordinary people and athletes worldwide for rehabilitation, functional activity, injury prevention and performance training, Training with body weight in slings is at the core of the concept. The exercises improve strength, muscular endurance, balance, coordination and core muscle stability. This is what we refer to as functional strength. Since Redcord exercises can activate several muscle groups during a single exercise, training time is reduced. A ten minute workout session three times a week will be sufficient to give good results.
In most sports power is generated in the core and transferred into a kick, jump or throw. Without strong core muscles the control and transfer of the energy will be reduced. This can result in poor results or injuries. Performance training with Redcord consists of three-dimensional exercises with high carry-over effect to sporting situations. The exercises improve strength, muscular endurance, balance, coordination and core muscle stability. Studies show that suspension exercises in Redcord improve athletic performance more than traditional strength training. Since Redcord suspension exercises activate muscle interaction and multiple muscle groups during a single exercise, the training is also time efficient.
