For over 20 years, the Pivotal Therapy System has been used by physical therapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors to treat soft tissue issues related to the spine. It takes time to slowly re-posture the spine and its soft tissue components. Pivotal Therapy is designed to help expedite this process and encourage restoration of normal function. Pivotal Therapy helps with re-posturing the spine and its soft tissue components by strengthening muscles that support improved posture.

The Pivotal Therapy System Pivot Therapy Set comes with 4 pieces geared toward improving posture and relief for neck, back, and low back pain.
The Occipivot is useful in treating tension and stress syndromes which include headaches, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), cervical syndrome, and tension at the base of the skull (such as tight muscles at the top of your neck). Uses include treating neck pain, or for chronic tension in the neck. As the fingertips on the occipivot come into contact with the tense areas of the neck, this device creates an acupressure effect which releases tension.
The Cervical Pivot is useful as a substitute for gentle cervical traction and can also be used as a self-mobilization and strengthening tool. It promotes self-release for the sternocleidomastoid (the muscle that runs down the side of the neck), upper trapezius (the shoulder blade area), and 1st ribs.
The Short Thoracic Pivot can be used for craniosacral self-treatment (CST), which involves the therapist working the key muscles of the spine and skull. It can also be used as a sacral wedge for mobilization, as a rib release tool, and for sternal and anterior rib mobilization.
The Lumbar Pivot corrects lordosis, the inward curvature of the spine. It can also be used as a platform for treating pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, which are the main symptoms of lumbar dysfunction. This can help with exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles and relieve low back pain.
