Redcord is a Norwegian organization that aims to be the common thread (“den røde tråden” is a Norwegian phrase for this, and it translates to “red cord”) between injury, health and optimal fitness. Many years of research, development and experience serve as the basis for the Redcord Education Program. Neurac® treatment has been developed over many years with the input from medical and therapy professionals in collaboration with an international network of researchers and clinicians.
International guidelines and treatment recommendations for musculoskeletal disorders focus on active treatment. Based on 20 years of experience Neurac is an active and highly effective method treating musculoskeletal ailments. Continual incorporation of available and relevant science makes the Neurac courses attractive and is today delivered in more than 20 countries.
Studies show that pain and/or inactivity can disturb the signals for neuromuscular control. This leads to impaired muscle interaction and decreased strength and quality of movement, also called weak links. As a result some muscles become stressed, strained and painful. The Neurac method focuses on neuromuscular re-education to activate, normalize and strengthen the muscle interaction.
Neurac consists of specially tailored exercises and techniques in Redcord ropes and slings, aiming to restore functional and pain free movement patterns through a high level of neuromuscular stimulation. Redcord Workstation Professional is the only way to perform Neurac treatment. Read more about equipment.
The Neurac method applies high effort without the need for high mechanical load, using key biomechanical principles to optimally enhance muscle activation and function:
- Closed Kinetic Chain (body-weight-bearing exercise)
- Movements in multiple planes
- Precise progressions
- Pain free movements
When you complete the Neurac Course Program and become a Certified Neurac Provider you will contribute to Redcord’s vision “Helping Every Body to improve physical function to participate in an active life”
