Quick relief from your back, neck or shoulder problem. With Theraflex you are likely to gain relief in just 3 – 4 treatments.

More than half of the UK population suffer from back problems. In many cases it is caused by inflexibility of the spine.

Theraflex treatment makes the spine more supple resulting in improved overall performance. This is achieved by manipulating each neighbouring vertebrae to move independently of each other reducing the friction between them.

We use the EPVM1 Vertebral Mobilizer which is the first self-contained physiotherapy equipment that enables the discrete movement and mobilization of individual segments of the spine.

How Does Theraflex Spinal Manipulation Work?

There are three adjustable modes of operation:

Muscle relaxation

Reflex stimulation

Vertebral Mobilization

The first two modes (preparatory modes) are used by the physiotherapist to stimulate muscle relaxation and spinal reflexes. Using the Theraflex bionic hand in vertebral mobilization triggers a response in the neuromuscular system in a way that is impossible to achieve using only the hands.

This treatment helps to create movement of individual segments of the spine that in effect increase the mobility of the spinal column.

What Does Theraflex System Treat?

Theraflex is mostly known for treating general stiffness of the spine but it is also successfully used to treat conditions like:

  • Postural alignment
  • Back and neck pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Muscle Strain
  • Sports related back pain
  • Kyphosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Disc Pain

Most patients are pain free after just a few treatments without forceful manipulation.

Are There After Treatment Exercises?

Yes, patients are encouraged to work on their postural muscles by walking tall for 10 minutes a day for 10 days.

Theraflex as a Preventative Treatment

Theraflex Treatment is ideal for those who are looking to enhance their sports performance as it increase spinal flexibility. It also recommend for those prone to a stiff spine.
