Paramount Pictures selected SpineForce to be filmed in training sequences with actors for the upcoming summer 2009 Blockbuster movie “G.I. Joe” currently being filmed in Los Angeles, California. Paramount Studio Producers of the film starring Dennis Quaid and Sienna Miller wanted to highlight the SpineForce 3-D rehab exercise technology on the set of G.I. Joe as the state-of-the-art trainer used by the actors in the film.
SpineForce was developed by leading European physicians, physical therapists, strength conditioning coaches and experts in Biomechanics. SpineForce is the first FDA cleared technology designed to pinpoint and strengthen the 180 deep spinal muscles and improve strength, improve balance, coordination, proprioception, posture and range of motion all in one unique technology.
Deep Spinal musculature is the most important, yet often most neglected part of the body. Affecting over 65 million Americans, low back pain results from the accumulated effects of muscle and/or joint overloading from such biomechanical factors as poor proprioceptive (or sensory/balance) responses and reduced lower back muscle endurance.
Traditional low-tech strengthening and exercise technologies like sit ups, crunches, swiss balls, elastic bands and weight machines can be inconsistent, as they do not reach the 180 deep spinal muscles. That’s because these exercises typically work on only one plane of motion, which can stress muscles and cause spinal joints and discs to grind and cartilage to wear away. “SpineForce conditions the body from the inside out, reinforcing the spinal structure and increasing overall stability and posture,” explains Dr. Marc Golub, National Trainer.
SpineForce helps patients in 5 primary areas:
* Relieve lower back, neck and shoulder pain which affects millions of Americans
* Improves balance and neuromuscular disorders (Fall Prevention, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis)
* Provides strengthening, agility and coordination exercise for athletes (like improving range of motion and swing speed for golfers)
* Serves as an anti-aging tool (a preventative method for osteoporosis in seniors)
* Rehabilitate core and spinal muscles after back surgery or spinal decompression therapy
Reinforcing and conditioning the entire spinal structure, SpineForce increases overall strength, stability, balance, coordination and posture so people can live their lives to the fullest pain free. The state-of-the-art virtual trainer and interactive visual response system provides biofeedback that motivates and challenges individuals to reach their goals.
