New Product for the Spine

Posted Oct 07 2008 7:19pm

Last week I went to a physical therapy center in Orange County, NY to try a new product called the Spine Six.  The Spine Six allows the patient to perform functional range of motion in a non-weight bearing environment.  The experience was great.  I did not feel like I was exercising and I was relaxed during the session.  Three other individuals with clinical symptoms also tried the Spine Six.  They reported no pain during the procedure and felt relaxed as the treatment was progressing.  All three patients experienced positive results in their active range of motion,walking  and state of mind.
