Backs for your Future: our Back & Neck pain program

Welcome to our new Back and Neck pain rehabilitation program.


We’re seeing some great successes with it. It’s not your old school rehab program; graduates of this program are lifting weights and exercising at quite high intensity without fear of pain.


What is the program?


  • Fitter, healthier back

  • Reduced pain and reduced pain reoccurrence

  • Build Confidence 

Combined exercise program

  • Weight training

  • Pilates 

  • Functional Training

  • Body Weight Exercise

  • Mobility and flexibility 


12 week rehabilitation program addressing

  • musculoskeletal deficits

  • psychosocial factors related to back and neck pain


Wholly individualised programs based on a patient’s functional ability and movement tolerances and intolerances.

We know you're busy and unlikely to make it down to check out our rehab gym. Here's a video - meet some of our patients who ‘used to have back pain’.  Barbara had standard ongoing lower back pain, Al had long standing lower back pain from a career in the military. Also see our Physios demonstrating some of our course exercise content. 


Phase One

  • Individual consultation: Assessment, diagnosis, clear treatment pathway and a plan for the future. 

  • Individual consultation to reduce pain as required

  • Individual consultation for pain education and exercise prescription


Phase Two

  • Exercise in pairs or smalls groups to encourage compliance


Phase Three

  • Independent exerciser; skills, knowledge and confidence for independent exercise either at home or most commonly continued in our rehab gym on their own or teamed with someone else from the program.
