Whether you have just recovered from an injury or even surgery to the low back, the best way to avoid or minimise the severity of recurrences is to follow a course of Spinal Rehabilitation.
While some of the muscles that support the low back are used in everyday life, most do not get an adequate level of exercise from daily activities.
Lack of the correct level of activity leaves a muscle tight, weak and poorly coordinated at working as a team with neighbouring muscles. Gradual deterioration of muscle and joint function is compounded by common factors such as inactivity, wear and tear, injury and chronic pain.

What is ‘Spinal Rehabilitation’?
Spinal Rehab is an exercise program that aims to help improve strength and stability to the back.
Depending on the specific diagnosis and level of pain, the exercise program is prescribed specifically for your injury.
The aim is to develop an appropriate exercise program that can eventually be recreated in your front room or the local gym. This enables a quick and solid recovery that you are fully in charge of!
The 3 components of rehab are Stretching, Strengthening and Basic Conditioning
What is involved?
A course of rehab designed to help YOUR back, no matter what level of fitness or age!
To make a robust and long lasting improvement to your low back pain, you will need to follow a course of exercise. Normally between 8 and 12 sessions of rehab are recommended (over 2-3 months) to get your back functioning close to its best. However, you are welcome to choose how many and how often sessions are completed in a way that suits you.
The rehab team, led by the Chiropractor, are always on hand to advise on the best route forward. At all stages of rehab, you are always supervised one-to-one with our personal trainer and closely monitored by the referring practitioner.
A low back with good flexibility and strong supporting muscles can maintain a good level of activity through out a lifetime. However, with both poor flexibility and weakness of surrounding muscles, function of the low back is diminished. Spinal rehabilitation aims to redress this balance and get your low back firing on all cylinders!
A course of spinal rehabilitation is designed to restore normal levels of strength and flexibility in a safe and long lasting way. After following a prescribed course, you will be taught how to maintain the progress made, beyond the clinic and into the future. By putting you in charge of your recovery, there is a far greater chance of long term success and management of low back pain.
