How the Treatment Course is Performed

IVRDAVID methodHow the Treatment Course is Performed

With the help of a course of exercises on David medical simulators, we are consolidating the result of the primary treatment for a long time, and improve the strength and endurance of the deep muscles stabilizing the spine, including elimination of muscle asymmetry. Therefore, it is not possible to work deep muscles carefully and safely on conventional fitness equipment. The course of treatment must pass under the supervision of the attending doctor and rehabilitation professional.

MAIN STAGES IN THE TREATMENT COURSE
1. PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS AND COUNSELLING

A doctor performs a detailed examination of the patient's spine and refers to computer diagnostics of the patient's muscles. The patient undergoes primary diagnostics of muscle strength and mobility on David medical simulators under the supervision of rehabilitation professional. It helps to identify “a muscular profile” of the patient, and the individual treatment program is prescribed by the doctor and rehabilitation professional.

2. TREATMENT COURSE AT THE INSTITUTE

A minimum treatment course at the Institute of Vertebrology and Rehabilitation takes 5-10 days and includes a range of methods: medical massage, physiotherapy, spinal correction using “short lever” method, mandatory counseling and medical supervision.

3. START OF THE TREATMENT COURSE BY THE DAVID METHOD

A minimum treatment course consists of 12 sessions. 24 sessions are recommended to consolidate the results for a long time. The treatment duration is of great importance, as chronic back pain causes functional and structural changes in the tissues of spine and paravertebral structures, which takes time to recover. The treatment course is held under compulsory supervision of the doctor and rehabilitation professional.

4. INTERIM DIAGNOSTICS AND COUNSELING (AFTER 4 OR 6 SESSIONS)

After 4-6 sessions, an interim diagnostics of the patient’s state is carried out. A rehabilitation professional assesses the state of muscles in dynamics, the doctor conducts an interim consultation and adjusts treatment program as necessary.

5. FURTHER DAVID TREATMENT COURSE (6-12 SESSIONS)

After the interim consultations and examination of the patient, the doctor adjusts the treatment program together with the rehabilitation professional. Most often, the patient already feels pain reduction, the body becomes more coordinated, respectively, and he can be exposed to greater load. Continuation of treatment is aimed at maximizing the strength and endurance of the deep muscles that support the spine.

6. FINAL DIAGNOSTICS AND COUNSELING (AFTER SESSION 12)

The final diagnostics already shows improved strength and mobility of the patient, elimination of muscle imbalance. The rehabilitation professional and doctor comment on the results of treatment in detail, give necessary recommendations.

How to reach the first results quickly

A minimum course of treatment consists of 12 sessions on DAVID medical simulators under the supervision of an experienced doctor, rehabilitation professional and computer software EVE Professional.

A therapeutic session consists of a mandatory warm-up and preparation for load under the supervision of rehabilitation professional. Each approach to exercise is controlled by a rehabilitation professional, or by the Patient with the help of David simulator computer screen, where the patient sees all the necessary indicators at the time of the session. After each exercise and at the end of sessions a rehabilitation professional makes special stretching exercises with patients.

The graph shows the impact of the treatment course with the help of David. high-tech medical simulators. Already during the second half of the course of treatment the patient achieves a significant improvement in the condition. The first two sessions are aimed at improving the coordination of movements. The nervous system learns to re-control the movement more fully and intensely, because the patient's movements are restricted, and the coordination is misbalanced due to pain. During this period of “coordination”, the minimum load is recommended in the treatment program. During the period of "adaptation", from sessions 2 to 6, muscles adapt to more intense recommended load. Muscles get used to operate more efficiently. During the "strengthening period" from sessions 6 to 9, load is increased, according to the results of the interim testing and recommendations of the attending physician and recreation therapist. During the period of "normalization" from sessions 9 to 12 activity markedly pronounced therapeutic effect is observed, the level of pain is significantly reduced, levels of stamina and mobility are increased.

WHY WILL TREATMENT COURSE HELP YOU?
INDIVIDUAL APPROACH

Before the start of exercises, the Patient undergoes computer diagnostics under the guidance of a rehabilitation professional, during which we collect the exact characteristics of the patient’s constitution, condition of his/her back, flexibility, and strength of various muscles. The Patient’s data are processed online in a data center in Helsinki, the doctor forms a medical training program and a recreation therapist makes individual equipment settings for a particular patient. Later, during the sessions aimed at building an effective muscular corset and development of deep muscles, the load and amplitude of exercises on simulators are supplied by computer under the supervision of a recreation therapist.

HELPFUL IN 90% OF SITUATIONS

Officially recognized in Europe, David Spine Concept method effectively relieves back pain in case of disc herniation, protrusion, and osteochondrosis in 90% of cases. The results are verified by more than 20 years of experience of application and statistics in Germany, Finland, Austria, the USA and other countries. The treatment takes place under the supervision of an experienced doctor and rehabilitation professional.

CONSIDERS ASYMMETRY

It is considered that asymmetrical development of the muscles is one of the main reasons that eventually lead to the different disorders and back pain. During exercises using the David method, asymmetry of deep muscles of the left and right sides of the body is successfully diagnosed and eliminated: the load and amplitude of the right and left sides will differ, precisely calculated by a computer program based on the results of testing. It is also important to correct muscle imbalance of the upper and lower extremities during rehabilitation after injuries and surgical interventions. During the course of rehabilitation, regular progress tests help to see how the strength and mobility of the muscles of the right and left sides of the body become more uniform. Exercises are held under the supervision of an experienced specialist in rehabilitation.

MAXIMUS SAFE

The development of David method and simulators involved European experts from various fields: scientists, doctors and experts in biomechanics, sports medicine, rehabilitation, and orthopedics. Therefore, design of simulators is ergonomic and safe. Firstly, during training only targeted muscle groups are working by limiting the movement of non-target muscles with special mechanisms for fixing the body parts that should not be involved. Second, during training sessions the load is dosed and is governed exclusively by the computer, according to the results of diagnostics and the current progress of the Patient in the program, and, of course, by the Patient with a rehabilitation professional. During the course of treatment using the unique software EVE Professional software, feedback principle is used. Thanks to this during the session, the Patient has the ability to track their performance, such as a range of motion and loads on the left and right side of the body. EVE Professional biological system allows you to start training with a minimum weight, range of motion, and number of approaches and to track the progress of the Patient. In addition, the course is safe thanks to the constant involvement of a doctor and rehabilitation professional.
