The Theraflex machine is a computerised unit that powers a handset using compressed air.
The handset has four pistons which can move at different speeds and forces under the control of the therapist.
The handset is used to mobilise the spine at a rapid rate ie far quicker than a pair of osteopathic hands.
Why use Theraflex
The goal of Theraflex treatment is to rapidly encourage or regain flexibility to the spine. Several treatments are advised to get the best results.
Theraflex and AtlasPROfilax
AtlasPROfilax is a long term treatment that corrects body assymetries as a result of descending patterns.
Not only is it corrective for upper limb and lower limb functional length discrepancies it also encourages improved centre of gravity relationships.
Poor postural habits with their associated embedded motor engrams or muscle memories are a barrier in the short term effects of this treatment.
It has been observed that patience is necessary as the body embarks on a period of fascial unwinding.
In fact in the case of scoliosis change in bony configuration is required to take place which may take some considerable time.
Theraflex as a post atlasprofilax therapy is an ideal choice as it will encourage the effects of the atlasprofilax treatment thus speeding up fascial unwinding and releasing soft tissue contractures.
As a treatment combination I believe these two therapies have a powerful influence and are possibly the best strategy for improving spinal alignment.
