SM system


The method called "SM System" or also "Stabilization and Mobilization System" is based on 39 years of long-term development and 34 years of clinical experience in the field of exercises for patients suffering from back pain in the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions, as well as patients with acute disc prolapse and people diagnosed with scoliosis. In Germany, this method is even covered by health insurance as a form of treatment (the SM exercise system).

Exercise is suitable for people of all ages from 5 to 100 years - including children, women, men, seniors, pregnant women and both elite and recreational athletes. The SM system is beneficial for individuals suffering from back pain or for those who want to prevent spinal problems. Exercise also plays a significant role in the prevention and treatment of major joint disorders such as hip, knee, shoulder, leg and foot arch disorders. This method is used by many elite athletes as part of conditioning training to improve athletic performance and prevent overloading and degeneration of the spine and large joints during sporting activity.

The exercise consists of a specific set of exercises developed by Richard Smisek, M.D., which help to properly activate the spiral muscle chains. This stretches the spine upwards and ensures sufficient space for the intervertebral discs to heal and regenerate. Due to bad habits such as sitting too much or working with a laptop, our spiral muscle chains become weakened while the vertical muscle chains are overloaded. This results in vertebral compression and increased stress on the intervertebral discs.


How to start with SM system?

For best results and to prevent any muscle imbalances that can limit range of motion and cause pain, it is recommended to have 3-6 individual sessions with a specialized therapist who will not only teach you the correct way to perform the exercises, but can also correct muscle imbalances using the manual techniques of the SM System.
