Neurac (the abbreviation for Neuromuscular Activation) Sling Exercise is a new form of physical therapy exercise offered by Actify, a well known provider of functional enhancing exercise solutions. It involves the use of exercise slings specifically designed by Redcord. It aims to free patients from pain during movements and other body functions.
According to a study published by the Journal of Physical Therapy Science published on August 2013, Neurac Sling Exercises are truly effective in the improving postural balance, normalizing muscle functions and decreasing the pain intensity in patients suffering from low back pain. In this particular study, the researchers recruited sixteen patients suffering from chronic low back pain. They then divided their subjects randomly into two groups. The first group received the conventional physical therapy, 40 minutes per session, four times a week. On the other hand, the second group received Neural sling lumbar stabilization exercises on top of their usual physical therapy sessions of 40 minutes per session, four times a week.
At the end of the study period, the researchers noted that those that belong to the group that received Neurac sling exercises have greater pain relief and better postural balance adjustment compared to the other group that received the conventional physical therapy sessions.
Thus, they have concluded that greater pain relief and better posture improvement can be achieved by adding Neurac sling exercises to the physical therapy sessions of patients suffering from chronic low back pain.
