GBFPT is the first clinic in Massachusetts to offer Redcord training to treat weak or injured muscles. Redcord is a revolutionary exercise technique that uses core strength to correct muscle imbalances and pain. Redcord’s unique setup of slings and bands suspends the body in safe, stable, and controlled positions designed to stimulate inactive muscles and strengthen the body’s core muscles. Engaging in these exercises can improve balance, promote joint stability, and lead to better range of motion, which can prevent future muscle injuries and discomfort. See Redcord.us for more details.
Neuromuscular reeducation is a general term that refers to techniques that attempt to retrain the neuromuscular system to function properly. The basis of this idea is that the formation of certain patterns of communication between muscles and nerves allow people to perform simple everyday acts such as climbing stairs. These normal patterns of movement can be disrupted by injuries or may be impaired in people with certain medical conditions. The general aim is either to re-establish normal patterns of movement in injured people or to create normal patterns of movement in disabled people, by practicing a variety of exercises.
