Is strength the missing link for treating neck pain?
Neck pain is one of the biggest problems within healthcare. Manual therapy is the most common treatment for this but is the missing link strength? This is the opinion of several leading clinicians and researchers and the BTE Multi Cervical Unit can address this.
Objective measurements for diagnosis and comprehensive cervical evaluations
Multi plane movement
Single & multi-plane movement patterns with variable resistance for strengthening
Intuitive diagrams, charts and graphs displaying movement and strength
Over 90% of patients experience positive outcomes and improved quality of life
Attract new patients
Create a new neck pain patient pathway with the multi cervical unit
As well as clinical efficacy, the MCU has a clear return on investment
What can the MCU unit help test and treat?
Become a neck pain centre of excellence
70% of people will experience neck pain in our lifetime. It is one of top five leading causes of disability and has a huge financial impact on healthcare systems. Women are more affected than men (1.38x more likely). Also, there is a direct correlation between the duration of neck pain and likelihood of pain resolution within 2 months. The longer the problem, the longer A problem!
There are several known causes of neck pain such as headaches and torticollis but the big issue is muscle weakness and imbalance. The head is like a bowling ball on a stick, so having strong muscles in the neck and shoulders is critical. If muscles do not work in unison it is a problem and symmetry is very important to avoid neck pain.
"If you’re looking to differentiate yourself form the competition, the Multi Cervical Unit is one of the most important capital expenditures, and I wouldn’t practice without it… It’s the most important reason why patients get better for the long term versus just managing symptoms."
"The MCU is a game changer for you, your clients, and your practice."
"It was so obvious, what’s missing is neck strength. With the Multi Cervical Unit we can finally address the underlying problem. No other system gives a graded strengthening in the functional position of sitting.It earns it's own money."
