Looking for chronic pain treatment in your area? Try Redcord Redcord

When you’re living with chronic pain, sometimes it might seem that you’re always the one left out because of it. You might miss out on your favorite recreation activities. Or, you might not be able to play with your children or grandchildren. With pain, you probably spend most of your day on the couch because anything that requires movement simply hurts too much. 

Studies show that more than 50 million American adults suffer from some form of chronic pain. Because chronic pain is such a common occurrence, physical therapists like our team at Advent are always looking for new methods for advancing treatment. One method that we have found to be effective for patients suffering from chronic pain is the Redcord system.

What is the Redcord system?

The Redcord system is a system of slings and cords that are used to partially or totally suspend parts of your body in the air. The slings and cords are made of stretchable material that your physical therapist can adjust to correspond with your needs. The goal is to position your body in suspension so that your body weight naturally engages your muscles in a gentle fashion.

Activating your muscles this way essentially tells your brain to work on keeping them strong and restoring their motion that may have been affected by your condition or injury. In conjunction with gentle exercises, stretches and other treatment methods, Redcord could just be the ticket to help you reduce and prevent chronic pain. 

Your physical therapist may recommend Redcord if you have:

  • Muscle tension from a chronic condition
  • Muscle pain from overexertion or a traumatic injury
  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic girdle pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches related to neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
