NECK PAIN TREATMENT

NECK PAIN TREATMENT

The BTE Multi-Cervical Unit (MCU) is the most effective and complete system for the assessment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from chronic neck pain.  

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 that objectively evaluates cervical active range of motion (ROM) and isometric strength in multiple different positions.
These measurements are used to create your individualized dynamic strength program.

 

BENEFITS OF MCU TREATMENT INCLUDE:
 

  • Improved neck strength

  • Increased range of motion and neck mobility

  • Decreased neck pain

  • Increased functional ability

  • Long term strength and health gains

  • Improved quality of life
     

Research done at the Melbourne Whiplash Centre by Dr. Robert Denardis shows that more than 75% of chronic neck pain suffers will have significant pain relief by strengthening their muscles with the Multi-Cervical Unit. A study at La Trobe University noted patients made significant improvements in their neck range of motion and strength. Clinical studies done by Denardis have also shown that after MCU therapy, people with neck pain reported their symptoms improved by over 60%.
 

MULTI-CERVICAL UNIT EXERCISE COMPARED TO THERA-BAND EXERCISE

Research has shown that strength gains with the MCU are nearly 50% greater than those achieved with Thera-band (resistance bands). The study notes the MCU machine limits the movement to one plane, therefore, minimizing shear forces on the neck and retraining cervical stabilization. While Thera-band can be an effective low-cost alternative to the MCU, it is evident the MCU produces superior strength gains.
 

MCU PROVIDES EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM:
 

  • Chronic neck pain

  • Whiplash associated disorders

  • Cervical disc conditions

  • Sports-related neck injuries

  • Repetitive work-related injuries

  • Tension headaches

  • Arthritis
