With Sling therapy, it is possible to provide the patient with several treatment methods:
- improving joint mobility,
- improving motor control,
- stabilizing exercises,
- stretching exercises
- exercises with resistance,
- exercises in increasing progression.
How is the therapy performed?
The essence of therapy is to perform exercises without the effects of gravity. Sling therapy uses ties with varying degrees of elasticity and resistance. In elastic ligament therapy, the patient's body is placed in ligaments that provide the physiotherapist's freedom of hand to better guide, adjust, and control the patient's movements. The use of ligaments reduces the load on the body and joints, allowing the patient with less difficulty to assume a painless body position and be active in it. The use of bandages allows for a feeling of relaxation and creates an additional sense of security for the patient.
