Most people shy away from exercise when their back or joints are in pain. And while there are periods of required rest after an injury, the application of an appropriate exercise programme soon after can significantly speed up recovery and allow a joint to return to proper function.

Our role usually starts when you are in the completion stage of your physiotherapy programme. Most people make the mistake of neglecting any further rehabilitation at this stage, which can lead to chronic limitations in range of motion, strength and mobility of a joint.

Back Pain

Most people suffer from back pain, especially low-back pain, at one point or other in their life. There are various causes for low-back pain. These can range from an acute injury due to lifting something badly, to intervertebral disc damage, to postural problems or excessive sitting. Low-back pain can originate from disc, vertebra, muscle or soft tissue damage or irritation.

 Following referral from your doctor or physiotherapist, we can apply an appropriate programme for you based on the diagnosis provided.

 Our methodological approach is based on the research by acclaimed spine biomechanist, Dr. Stuart McGill, using the approach of ‘spinal stiffening’ to support the alignment of the spine and minimise pain triggers caused by excessive movement and flexion in the low-back region.

Ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist injury rehab programmes

Our rehab programmes are designed to address specific injuries, and act as a continuation and progression of the physiotherapy programme you followed, until you are able to resume ‘normal’ activity again. These programmes usually consist of specific strengthening and stretching exercises that work on strengthening weakened or injured muscles, tendons or ligaments that provide movement and support to a joint, and stretching muscles or ligaments that may have tightened over time or as a result of inactivity, and are contributing to the joint discomfort or pain.
