The basic science of myofascial release

Explore the evidence and deep science of myofascial release

This theoretical and clinical approach asks the provider to reflect on their view of the body; how it is structured, functions, and communicates. It involves a conceptual shift from a biological systems infrastructure model to a self- organizing cybernetic biological systems model.

Telehealth for low back pain

Patient empowerment, better self-management, and cost savings

For most cases, LBP is a relatively straightforward problem of posture, strength, and awareness. Telehealth solves these problems by giving providers the capabilities they need to better support their patients and gives patients the personalized tools, information, and access to the professional guidance they need to more effectively self-manage their condition.

Case study on LBP and telehealth

Enabling patients outside the clinic walls improves outcomes and satisfaction

The Telespine program reduced the cost of low back pain, dramatically promoted employee participation, greatly improved therapeutic outcomes, and significantly increases patient satisfaction higher than traditional office-based physical therapy care alone.
