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
Combined exercise program
Body Weight Exercise
Mobility and flexibility
12 week rehabilitation program addressing
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.
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
Exercise in pairs or smalls groups to encourage compliance
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.
