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. 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.
