Multi Cervical Unit
Research has shown the MCU to be successful in reducing pain for people with generalized neck pain, whiplash associated disorders (WAD) , cervical disc disease, neck strains, repetitive work related injuries, arthritis and tension headaches.
The MCU is an evidence based tool which objectively evaluates cervical active range of motion (ROM) and isotonic strength in multiple different positions. These measurements are used to create an individualized dynamic strength program that is performed on the machine with guidance
For those dealing with chronic neck pain the Multi-Cervical Unit offers an evidence based, measurable path to recovery. Not offered in any other clinic in Nanaimo, at Pure Body Balance we recommend a combination of manual therapy and supervised exercise therapy, as studies show this method to be more effective than manual therapy or exercise therapy alone.
