Medical Sciences and LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™

The LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™ physical rehabilitation equipment is supported by medical sciences and rules as outlined below.

LL Corpus Mini Clinic Medical Laws and Principles Support

WOLF’S LAW

Wolff’s Law states that bone grows and remodels in response to the forces that are placed upon it in a healthy person. After an injury to bone, placing specific stress in specific directions to the bone can help it remodel and become normal healthy bone again. As loading increases, overtime the bone remodels itself to become stronger.

LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™  supports Wolf’s Law:

Patient is positioned standing upright for multi-directional application of pressure to spine, hip, knee and ankle joints.
Weight bearing in prolonged standing allows pressure distribution, shifting loads to joints and bones to left and right side of the body.

OVERLOAD PRINCIPLE

Progressive overload is the gradual increase of stress placed upon the body during exercise training.  The technique is recognized as a fundamental principle for success in various forms of strength training programs including fitness training, weight lifting, high intensity training and physical therapy programs.

Greater than normal stress / load on body is required for adaptation to occur. Once the body has adapted, a change of stimulus is necessary to continue the change process.

LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™  supports Overload Principle:

Patient continues progression in therapeutic exercises without interruption, increasing exercise frequency and duration and level of challenge and intensity.

SAID PRINCIPLE

(SAID) Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand. When the body is placed under a stress, it starts to make adaptations that will allow the body to improve at tolerating that stress in the future.

LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™ supports Said Principle:

Patient commences with low impact exercises and progressively increases levels of difficulty (may use rehab accessories and attachments). Patient continues regimen with more repetitions and increased intensity to improve body’s response to challenges or to normalize task performance.

REVERSIBILITY PRINCIPLE

Individuals lose beneficial effects of physical exercise when they discontinue exercising. Muscles atrophy and cellular adaptations such as increased capillaries (blood flow to the muscles) and mitochondria density reverse. Conversely, the effects reverse when exercising resumes.

LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™ supports Reversibility Principle:

Patients lacking home help (from family members, caregivers or multiple physical therapist) will safely be able to continue therapy at home. Patients supported with standing, weight bearing and fitness training without fear of falling, with increased frequency and duration as tolerated and appropriate.

STANDING THERAPY PRINCIPLE

The advantages of putting users into a standing position include increasing bone mass, strengthening muscles, furthering respiration, and enhancing development of the hip socket. The upright position also increases users viewing area and enhances their feeling of well-being. Weight bearing is important to the user when developing and strengthening the hip joints.

LL Corpus: Mini Clinic ™  supports Standing Therapy Principle:

  • Increase of bone density
  • Decrease of joint contractures
  • Improvement of cardiopulmonary function
  • Improve digestion
  • Increase bone growth
  • Increase alertness
