THE SCIENCE

Muscle control is fundamental to posture and movement

Activcore takes a unique neuromuscular approach to healing, recovery and performance. Termed NEURAC (NEURomuscular ACtivation), this is a proven technique that has been practiced by leading physical therapists across the world for over 25 years. This is also an evidence-based method that has been peer-reviewed with more than 100 published research studies in industry-approved publications such as SPINE, Journal of Physical Therapy Science, Journal of Biomechanics, Journal of Human Kinetics, and Journal of Dance Medicine and Science.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.

 

The problem

Neuromuscular Deactivation

Many physical events (injury, illness, surgery, pregnancy, etc.) can alter your brain’s capacity to switch on the right muscles, at the right time, and with the right amount of strength. Known as neuromuscular deactivation, this loss of muscle control impairs your ability to properly stabilize joints through their range of motion. It can also disrupt how you recover from injury and trauma; and it can even impair how you regulate normal bodily processes like voiding urine.

With neuromuscular deactivation, other muscles tend to take over and compensate for the loss of muscle control. This creates a vicious cycle that eventually leads to physical imbalances, abnormal movement patterns and dysfunction.

Common sources of muscle control issues

  • Sports and repetitive use Sports and repetitive use
  • Injury and pain Injury and pain
  • Surgery and medication Surgery and medication
  • Sedentary lifestyle Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor posture Poor posture
  • Pregnancy and childbirth Pregnancy and childbirth
 

The solution

Neuromuscular activation

Utilizing the Redcord suspension system, your provider has a unique ability to assess how you move without the interference of pain or compensation. Similar to floating in water, there are slings and bungee cords to assist you with each exercise. This creates an ideal training environment to correct underlying muscle weaknesses and imbalances.

Neuromuscular activation is like flipping on a light switch to muscles that have dimmed due to pain and inactivity. With each precise movement pattern performed in the ropes, you are developing motor control to help regain coordination, strength, stability and power for both sports and everyday activities.

Activcore is proud to be the nation’s leading authority in use of the Redcord suspension system for application of the revolutionary NEURAC (NEURomuscular-ACtivation) treatment method.

Redcord NEURAC is considered the gold standard for restoring neuromuscular control. By offloading the body with suspension slings and bungees, this type of exercise helps retrain how your mind and muscles work together for a smarter, balanced body. Oftentimes, your provider will shake the ropes (called perturbation) for even greater neuromuscular challenge.

Redcord NEURAC delivers real results faster than conventional physical therapy and strength training. The difference is neurological. When your mind and body are fully connected, the effects are unrivaled.
