NEURAC (NEURomuscular-ACtivation) is an assessment and treatment method that utilizes the Redcord® and one’s own body weight to restore proper neuromuscular control and functional stability for sports or daily activities. The Neurac treatment aims to correct muscle imbalances, caused by trauma, overuse, or inactivity, that lead to pain and inefficient movement patterns (compensation).
Neurac consists of specially tailored exercises and techniques in Redcord slings and aim to restore functional and pain free movement patterns through high levels of neuromuscular stimulation.
Studies have shown that pain and/or inactivity can disturb the signals for neuromuscular control. (The brains capacity to switch on the right muscles at the right strength at the right time). This leads to impaired muscle interaction, and decreased strength and quality of movement. As a result some muscles become stressed, strained and painful. The Neurac method focuses on neuromuscular re-education to activate, normalize and strengthen the muscle interaction. Often a dramatic reduction of pain and immediate improvement of function can be experienced.
Neurac treatment is pain free and with no negative side effects. The exercises can be hard and challenging, but should be executed with full quality and control. To prevent relapses and secure a long term effect, the treatment should be accompanied and followed by home training in Redcord slings.
