NEUBIE therapy is different from conventional eStim or TENS unit devices that simply offer alternating currents to affect change in the neuromuscular system. Instead, NEUBIE combines two waves, allowing a direct current (DC) to optimize the neurophysiological effect on the patient without causing the muscle to be locked up or frozen by muscular co-contraction.
This type of electrical stimulation focuses on creating eccentric muscle contractions which absorb force, improve performance, protect joints, and reduce injury. While other eStim technologies trigger stress response in a patient, the NEUBIE promotes a higher parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) tone and has extensive clinical evidence showing an increase in heart rate variability (HRV).
*What’s in it for you?*
The NEUBIE process finds the areas of your personal dysfunction and targets the current specifically to you and your movements. It is not a one-size fits all approach. It is completely unique to you and your issues.
If you suffer from ongoing pain or a long-term injury, adding NEUBIE to your therapy session will help you get back to your original self. Most people see benefits after their first session, however, it may take up to 4 sessions to get you back to your best self.
*NEUBIE can be used for:*
- Pain Reduction
- Performance Improvement
- Muscle Building
Using the NEUBIE, we find exactly where dysfunctional neurological patterns exist. When we apply Neufit technology, results include improved function and an acceleration of the body’s natural healing. This allows the symptoms to dissipate more quickly than with traditional therapy.
Pain is really in response to a perceived threat, and that threat can actually come in many forms. Several forms of threat can be addressed with a healthy lifestyle. Others, coming from inside the body, require a very targeted approach. For example, if the brain cannot tell precisely where all parts of the body are in space, then it doesn’t know what to do next and feels threatened. This is a deficit in “proprioception,” and is one of the major targets of our work.
Most training systems try to change output – “push harder,” “shift your weight to that side,” “reach your arm higher in your throwing motion”. However, we know that output is dependent on inputs. If we can change the inputs, the outputs will naturally improve. What does this actually mean? It means that strategic joint mobility drills, neurological stimulation with the NEUBIE, lots of eccentric movement with an emphasis on position, and amplifying your ability to psychologically engage can all cause outputs to improve. The net result is increased performance, and it often happens quicker than you’d think.
There are two parts to this process: Stimulation + Depletion and Recovery + Growth.
In the first phase, depletion, people have traditionally spent hours upon hours in the gym to achieve growth. With Neufit technology, we can intensify your workouts so much that you can get 2-3 hours worth of work accomplished in as little as 20 minutes.
During the second phase, recovery, it is necessary to get enough raw materials in to replenish the energy (carbohydrates and fat); and structural building blocks (protein) that are necessary to grow. This refers to your post-treatment nutrition.
