Whether you're healing from an injury or just looking for a more mind-body approach to your workout, a new European concept currently emerging in Southern California might be just what you need.
Dancer Bill Prudich is working on a unique therapy called Red Cord to rehabilitate his knee.
"I've done Gyrotonics, I've done Pilates, the whole thing, but this can identify such a small area, such a small set of muscles that the larger muscle groups are hiding," said Prudich.
Physical therapists Allyson Cabot and Gabrielle Shrier own Core Conditioning in Studio City.
It is one of a handful of places in the U.S. using Red Cord, a technique that originated in Norway. The system helps re-train brain and muscles to work together when weakness and injury have altered function.
"When we move we move with a certain pattern and we're born with the correct pattern," said Shrier. "But as we grow older and change you have to re-educate the neural system because the neural system is what activates the muscle system."
"It's like triggering the muscles to come on at the right time, so it's like turning a computer off and turning it on and hoping it works again properly," said Cabot.
