San Diego chronic neck pain sufferers, PainCare’s new MCU is here for you!
PainCare of San Diego is proud to be one of only two San Diego medical offices to offer the most comprehensive cervical spine evaluation and rehabilitation system in the world; the Multi-Cervical Unit or MCU.
Traditional techniques of treating neck pain like massage and acupuncture often provide only temporary relief. PainCare of San Diego has been searching for a better way to treat our patients’ pain, and we found it in the MCU.
Designed to increase cervical range of motion and strength in order to restore neck function, the MCU provides a thorough and objective evaluation of the cervical spine and neck muscles. It then prescribes a series of neck-strengthening exercises to resolve the underlying cause of neck pain.
The MCU is a digital system that evaluates and records the patient’s cervical spine movement and isometric strength. The program generates an objective report and recommends a course of treatment. Therapy is conducted on the MCU using weights from one-quarter of a pound up to 20 pounds for cervical conditioning.
Strengthening sessions last 20-30 minutes and are conducted 2 times per week for 6-12 weeks.
“The goal of the MCU is to achieve total restoration to the neck musculature, offering long term results” says PainCare’s Dr. Danny Song. “With the addition of the MCU, PainCare of San Diego will be able to offer sustained results to patients suffering from whiplash, muscle tension headaches, general neck pain and pain associated with cervical disc compression.”
