Re: MCU - Multi-Cervical unit

I can't possibly move my neck that far in those positions as I am fused from C5 to C7 with titanium cages/rods/screws...(I would snap like a twig...LOL)

Once someone has gone through other tests to make sure they are 'healthy' enough to use this...then it's a good assessment tool to determine the severity of whiplash after an injury (again...after an x-ray or other tests are done and no ruptures or bulging discs are found)...

For rehab purposes, it's really just a sophisticated tool to do stretching and help rehabilitate the muscles and tendons from a strain or spasm...

Is this available at your Dr.s office and are they recommending this for you?

Re: MCU - Multi-Cervical unit

hello Ilovemycutedog. I had a severe whiplash...I have two minimal bulging disks and x-rays is fine.

This machine is for soft tissue damage and I have it. With such a severe whiplash I have it. My doctor does not have that machine.

But I wonder if there is anybody here who tried it? i looked on some videos and it shows people who really got better. THey said they feel "normal" - oh normal, I need to feel normal.

Re: MCU - Multi-Cervical unit

So nobody here ever tried this machine? how is this possible?
lot's of people with chronic neck pain, severe whiplash and nobody used it? I find it hard to believe.
