DAVID Health: Active Rehabilitation

Painrelieve for back, neck and shoulder

 

Logo DAVID Health solutions

DAVID HEALTH is an international network of a several hundred centers, that provide a complete treatment of chronic BACK, NECK or SHOULDER pain.

The DAVID HEALTH concept is supported by the EVE Platform (evaluated exercise), which guides the patient through the exercise to optimise the treatment. The range of motion, the speed of execution, the number of repetitions, the exercise duration as well as the coordination are displayed on the EVE-Terminal screen fixed on each DAVID HEALTH device. A detailed report of the DAVID HEALTH program can be drawn up at any time.

The EVE Info-Kiosk not only allows you to visualise the functional exercises, but you will also be able to evaluate your pain level for each session, in order to adapt the treatment in the most accurate way.

MONDORF Domaine Thermal offers you the exclusivity of the DAVID HEALTH concept which includes "evidence-based" scientific criteria, validated by clinical data and independent studies published in the medical press.

In order to guarantee the quality assurance of the rehabilitation concept, the anonymised results of each DAVID HEALTH center are collected in a centralised database and regularly analysed.

Objectives

Inactivity fosters the deterioration of the structures and function of the spinal column or shoulders.

Muscle endurance is reduced and the loss of protection mechanisms increases the risk of further injuries.

The DAVID HEALTH rehabilitation aims to reverse the vicious circle of pain by acting on all the physiological, muscular and motor factors of your body so as to:

  • Relieve pain
  • Facilitate the gestures of daily life
  • Improve muscular endurance
  • Increase the amplitude of movements and functional capacity
  • Normalize mobility and motor coordination

If you are suffering from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain that affects the quality of your life, our DAVID HEALTH active rehabilitation program can help you.

90% of the treated patients notice a decrease of their pain level and their limitations in everyday life activities.
