TAMARS Report - 21st Century Back Care
In order to assess the effectiveness of TAMARS®, we collaborated with the biomechanics department at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to investigate the biomechanical effects of the TAMARS® treatment during clinical and functional every day tasks, in people with low back pain.

Patients were given functional tasks such as bending and twisting whilst being screened with a sophisticated 10 camera motion capture system which could accurately record spinal movements. Patients were screened again following a TAMARS® treatment and once more following a further 3 TAMARS® treatments.
Patients additionally completed questionnaires which subjectively assessed their back pain, back stiffness and the impact their low back pain had on daily life.
How did TAMARS® do? Well, judge for yourself:
“Overall this study has identified short and long term applications of TAMARS® to positively influence the spinal biomechanics during functional and clinical tasks. It can be concluded that TAMARS® positively influences spinal control. This improved control may be due to an increased proprioception of the surrounding muscles, causing a greater degree of spinal stability and therefore reducing the participant’s pain.”
Participants found improvements in pain levels, general activity, mood, walking ability, normal work, relationships with others, sleep and enjoyment of life. Get in contact if you would like to experience these benefits!
