Ulla Uller – Method description for using Mastercare

The Swedish Back Care System

Method description for using Mastercare – The Swedish Back Care System as a treatment method within physical therapy.
Registered physical therapist, Ulla Uller

Treatment Principle
Pressure free, active movements in a 15 or 30 degree inversion angle.

1. General Treatment

  • Follow the enclosed training program.
  • Instruct the patient to gently and methodically implement the program.
  • Should discomfort occur from having the head below the horizontal plane, instruct the patient to take a short rest in the horizontal position

2. Treatment of Limited Movement Neck Problem

  • Choose: with or without preparatory treatment.
  • Start by giving the patient a gentle traction in the horizontal position.
  • Let the patient perform painless stretch/relax exercises in all directions.
  • Lower to the 15 degree inversion angle.
  • Apply a gentle traction.
  • Let the patient perform an active program for increased mobility, co-ordination, stamina and strength.
  • If needed, guide with your hands.
  • Help the patient with mild stretching.
  • Return to horizontal position, and let the patient do a few active movements, in order to prepare the body for the normal load of gravity.
  • Instruct the patient to keep the knees slightly bent upon return to vertical position
  • Similar methods are used when treating limitation of movement, co-ordination. Strength and stamina in shoulders, upper/lower back, and hips.
  • An un-loaded ”walk” at the 15-degree inclination is a very effective an gentle mobilization treatment for the lower back.
  • I have successfully treated knee-joint problems, as well as chondro-malaci.
  • Mastercare is a natural part of any training facility, be it MTT, Sequence training or other types of bodybuilding .
  • Mastercare is a self-treatment method for homes and work-places.
  • It shortens and renders the rehabilitation time more effective at the physical therapist’s clinic, and eases the stress on both the physical therapist and the waiting list.
  • I have achieved treatment results in a couple of sessions, where I previously had to spend ten to fifteen sessions.
  • The patient very quickly becomes inspired to self-treatment, which extends the problem-free periods in chronic conditions, and encourages training motivation.
