CorFit Advantage Support

February 18th, 2011

Achieve superior truncal compression with less effort!

The New CorFit Advantage utilizes the PowerWrap lacing system to provide superior compression with less effort. The lacing system creates a mechanical advantage, reducing the amount of force required to properly tension the support. Two independent pulls provide focused compression on the lumbar region, sacral region, or both. The CorFit Advantage allows increased spinal flexion when the top portion of the support is tensioned more than the bottom portion as well as increased spinal extension when these tensions are reversed.

“The lacing system on the CorFit Advantage allows very weak or injured patients to easily tighten or adjust this support without overextension.” – Philip Mattison, CEO, Core Products International, Inc.

Fitting your patient with a Corfit Advantage support

Before placing the support on your patient’s waist, you first want to loosen the support by reattaching the side pulls to the edges of the hook and loop closure on the body of the belt. Then, to ensure the support is placed properly, align the back panel’s bottom edge with the distal sacrum. Once the support is in place, tighten it using the PowerWrap lacing system pulls. The top pull will increase compression to the lumbar region and the bottom pull will increase compression to the sacral region. For a better fit, re-tension the support while the patient is lying on the back with their feet on the floor. This adjustment allows the trunk to decompress without downward pressure from internal organs.

Sizing

All CorFit supports are designed to be proportional in height and width. Taller supports are designed to fit larger patients and shorter supports are designed for petites and children. The proportional sizing helps reduce inventory in clinics while maintaining the versatility needed to fit most patients.

Size Support Height Fits Hips
Small 6” 27” – 35”
Regular 8” 32” – 43”
X-Large 9” 40” – 52”
XX-Large 10” 56” – 58”

Acupuncture May Change the Way the Brain Perceives Pain

December 6th, 2010

The idea of pricking your body with needles in order to relieve pain seems nothing if not counter intuitive, but thousands of acupuncture patients swear the treatments are effective in addressing pain of all kinds.

But how does it work? How much of the relief is due to the placebo effect — the mere perception that the needles are actually dulling pain — as opposed to a real biological change in the way nerves signal the brain to pain?

A new study lends support to the notion that acupuncture may actually modulate the brain’s perception of pain. In a study that used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to track brain activity both before and during acupuncture, researchers led by Dr. Nina Theysohn at the University Hospital in Essen, Germany, and colleagues at University of Duisburg-Essen documented a specific pattern of brain activation during acupuncture that may represent an accessible pathway for addressing pain.

In the small trial, which involved 18 volunteers, each volunteer was placed in the fMRI scanner and then given a small electrical stimulus in the left ankle to generate pain. Acupuncture needles were then inserted at three places on the right side corresponding to regions known to modulate the ankle pain, and the fMRI was repeated. Comparing the brain scans before and after acupuncture, the scientists found that areas of the brain that were active during the pain stimulus were dampened during acupuncture, suggesting that the needles actually do cause a change in the way that the brain perceives and processes pain.

Chiropractors Cracking for Patient Comfort

November 3rd, 2010

Chiropractic services at Branch Health Clinic Naval Base Coronado, Branch Health Clinic Naval Base San Diego, and Branch Medical Clinic Miramar have been helping patients with their muscle and joint pain for seven years.

The chiropractic services at the Branch Health Clinics started in 2003, and treat approximately 300 patients per week, generating about 55 to 60 appointments per day at the three health clinics in the San Diego area, with one chiropractor per clinic.

All active duty service members are eligible for chiropractic care. Patients may receive referrals from their primary care doctor for the chiropractor. The chiropractic services fall under the physical therapy department. Patients are primarily seen by the chiropractor for back and neck pain.

“Many muscle and joint imbalances are due to a prior injury resulting in stiffness in joints or muscles,” said Cmdr. Michael D. Rosenthal, Department Head of Physical and Occupational Therapy at Naval Medical Center San Diego. “Our bodies do a very good job of compensating for those things so unless someone really works hard to get back to their pre-injury condition, patients will often times develop muscle or joint imbalance with tightness, weakness and/or stiffness.
