Components of the pivotal therapy system may be used individually to address specific problems or integrated to form a complete system to treat the entire spine.
Lumbar Pivot (e) Promote correct lordosis for static positioning or pivot in figure-eight along with bi-directional pelvic tilts. Add a sandbag to lower the abdomen for additional extension, self mobilization, and strengthening exercises for the abdomen.
Standard Thoracic Pivot (d) treat lower thoracic/upper lumbar dysfunction use anterior release techniques or specific rib-release techniques. Ideal posture re-training tool for patients with forward head/kyphosis slumping.
Short Thoracic Pivot (c) use in combination with cervical (b) and lumbar (e) pivots, for craniosacral self treatment, as a sacral wedge for mobilization, as a rib release tool, and for sternal and anterior rib mobilization.
Cervical pivot point (b) useful as a substitute for gentle cervical traction. It can also be used as a self-mobilization and strengthening tool. Promotes self-release for sternocleidomastoid, upper trapezius and 1st ribs.
Occipivot (a) treat tension and stress syndromes, headaches, TMJ, cervical syndrome and tension at base of skull. Promotes the release of the intrinsic/extrinsic muscles of the cervical spine.
For combined treatment of spine, surrounding muscles. Includes one each: occipivot (a), cervical pivot (b,d), short and standard thoracic © pivot and standard lumbar (e) pivot.
