An exercise disc balance cushion, otherwise known as a wobble cushion, balance disc or balance cushion is an inflatable round cushion which is strong enough to stand or sit on, and when doing so gives an unstable surface. It is used primarily to:
- Improve proprioception after injuries or surgery involving the leg
- Strengthen the core stability muscles to help decrease back pain
- Help children sit and concentrate in class
A balance pad is typically a thick, square piece of foam that is used in balance training due to the instability of the sponge-like material it is composed of. When you stand on the foam pad you instantly engage all of the muscles in your feet and your core to maintain balance. This improves your overall stability.
Foam rollers are exercise devices used for massage and fitness.When used for self-massage, they help soothe tight, sore areas (known as “trigger points”) and speed up muscle recovery. This process of rolling out tight muscles and relieving tension is also called myofascial release.
No matter what your fitness level this anti-burst gym ball is the right choice for you. It will help you tone and strengthen your deep pelvic and lower back muscles. It is also one of the best ways to get a great ab workout. The gym ball is a fantastic way to increase your smaller stability muscles, giving you better posture and balance.
Kinesiology taping is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, it is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
Resistance bands are latex bands or tubes that are used for physical therapy and light strength training exercises. They are also commonly used by athletes, but also people who are looking for a low-impact strength training workout.
Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals increasing its viscosity and density. It is often referred to as “viscoelastic” polyurethane foam, or low-resilience polyurethane foam (LRPu). Higher-density memory foam softens in reaction to body heat, allowing it to mold to a warm body in a few minutes. Newer foams may recover more quickly to their original shape. Its most common domestic uses are mattresses, pillows,shoes and blankets. It has medical uses, such as wheelchair seat cushions, hospital bed pillows and padding for people suffering long-term pain or postural problems; for example, a memory foam cervical pillow may alleviate chronic neck pain. Its heat-retaining properties may help some pain sufferers who find the added warmth helps to decrease the pain
What is a Tens Unit?
TENS stands for (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). which are predominately used for nerve related pain conditions (acute and chronic conditions). TENS machines works by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands.
The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.Tens devices also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called “Endorphins”.
