Redcord has been developed over the past 20 years in Norway and is now one of the most sought after rehabilitation and exercise tools in the European community. It is one of the secrets to the successes of World Champions Cadel Evans and Thor Huschovd and is now taught at MyPhysio.
The term "a red cord" is roughly translated from Norwegian meaning "a common thread". This refers to the common link between rehabilitation through identification of the body's "weak link", improving this link via a functional program then improving it further to enhance performance.
It thereby uses all of the physiotherapists knowledge, not just in rehabilitation but also into sporting performance enhancement.
Redcord uses specific suspension rope apparatus to enhance the body's awareness of appropriate movement. It is best described as a "core stability" training program that is able to detect the body's weakest link through specific testing with your physiotherapist. Through specific training your physiotherapist can improve that weak link and return you to not only your previous level of function but beyond.
Redcord is appropriate for any age group and any injury.
All of our physiotherapists have undertaken the RedCord/Neurac 1 course and our MyPhysio Evolution practice boasts the largest RedCord studio in the southern hemisphere!
Your physiotherapist will determine if RedCord/Neurac is right for your rehabilitation or even give it a try in one of our RedCord group training classes.
