Spiral stabilization is a unique rehabilitation method that has been developed by Dr. Smíšek since 1979. It is based on exercising muscle chains, improving posture and strengthening the core muscles so that muscular harmony and symmetry are restored. The principle of this method is that spiral muscle chains stretch the body and spine upwards during exercise. As a result, the vertebrae expand from each other and the pressure on the intervertebral discs and joints is reduced so, which enables their nutrition, regeneration and treatment.
The exercise helps with back pain, disc herniation and problems after spine surgery. It helps scoliotic patients, too. It is suitable for all age groups, children from 5 years of age and also for pregnant women whom this method helps to relieve back strain and make childbirth easier and quicker. It is a path to the health of the mother and child.
At the same time, Spiral stabilization prevents poor posture and degeneration of the spine and large joints in school desks. A sedentary lifestyle – not only of students – leads to severe muscle imbalances, which are the cause of disc herniation and scoliosis.
Scoliosis currently affects 5-10% of the child population; in more severe cases, it is necessary to wear a special corset and undergo surgical treatment. Regular exercise can prevent spinal surgery and help achieve visible improvement. Using this rehabilitation method, we are now able to treat patients with curves greater than 40 degrees Cobb’s angle, who used to be indicated for stabilization surgery.
The Spiral Stabilization method is also used by a number of top athletes as fitness training in order to achieve better results and prevent overload. This exercise doesn’t only strengthen muscles, but it also stretches them. In addition, it significantly lengthens the pace and speeds up the run. Quality fitness training doesn’t only prevent damage to the musculoskeletal system, but also significantly improves athletic performance.
Spiral stabilization requires the use of special elastic cord, which allows extensive movement of limbs against a small, gradually increasing force. Thanks to this, you can strengthen and stretch all important muscles in 10 minutes. Exercise is therefore time-saving and respects the natural laws of movement of the human body.
