Your grandchild is running towards you with extreme excitement, anticipating being picked up over your head and flown like an airplane. This situation moving forward can go three routes:
- You’re bending down to greet your enthusiastic grandchild and immediately endure that ever so familiar low back pain.
- You need to signal to your grandchild to slow down as they approach you and explain to them why you’re unable to bend down to pick them up.
- You bend at the knees, keeping your trunk posture vertical, greet you grandchild with open arms and raise him/her over your head – PAIN FREE!
Option 1 and 2 are less than ideal, with option 3 being the clear favorite; key words being “pain free”. I don’t want to scare you, simply inform you of the capabilities of the DorsaVi programming.
The DorsaVi training system is wireless sensor technology and electromyography (EMG) sensors that are placed on the skin of patients in a variety of areas. For example, we can (and do) analyze patients with low back pain. When the sensors are placed on the low back, they discreetly monitor movement and muscle activity. The sensors can detect abnormal movements that aren’t visible to the naked eye. The DorsaVi program translates the recorded information into easy to interpret data for the PT to work with. From there, they will produce the perfect treatment plan that will target those specific muscles or areas that the ViMove system pinpointed. In no time, you’ll be back to performing everyday movements without needing to restrict yourself to avoid low back pain.
