Therbo Robotic Therapy

Leading Edge Physical Therapy is the ONLY clinic in Polk County utilizing Therbo Robotic™ Therapy

Therbo Robotic™ Therapy is a breakthrough technology, following the same principles as Muscle Balance Therapy in order to lengthen muscles, decrease pain, and restore healthy function. Using repeated acupressure, it improves circulation, removes muscular waste products, and restores muscle balance to overused muscles. The robotic arm never tires - it’s capable of providing deeper treatment to your connective tissue with incredible precision and consistency.

Therbo Robots help the overworked muscles by eliminating waste (lactic acid) from the tissue, restoring normal blood flow, and allowing the muscles to stretch back to their normal length. Decreased pain and improved muscle endurance and flexibility will result. By relieving pressure from tight, overworked muscles, many patients experience immediate relief from back pain, sciatica, migraines, shoulder pain, and more.

Traditional massage typically employs a squeeze and release, stroking, or other forms of percussive techniques. This experience can range from relaxing to painful depending on the intensity. The Therbo Robot employs a “squeeze and hold” technique that is followed by a second, gentler application of pressure. This state-of-the-art treatment works so well, in fact, that athletes from nearly every major sports team are singing its praises and several teams have actually purchased machines for their locker rooms.
