Back Pain Diagnosis
The DIERS Formetric 11 Plus scanner is the world leader in optical 3D measurement systems for the back and spine. The London Orthotic Consultancy (LOC) was the first clinic in the UK to use one.
The scanner provides a fast, contactless and radiation-free measurement of the back surface and spine. It will identify any problem areas of:
- pelvic torsion and mal-alignment;
- spinal rotation and curvature;
- abnormal muscle tension.
It is used in our clinic to diagnose postural problems and analyse the effectiveness of the neuromuscular proprioception therapy treatment for poor posture and related back pain. It provides repeatable objective measurements.
