Is back pain holding you back?! Are you sick and tired of not being able to do the things in life you enjoy? Is back pain interfering with your ability to work and socialise?
If this is you it is important to know that the key to ending back pain is to treat the cause and not just the symptoms!
Research has proven that one of the key elements in low back pain is weakness of the specific ‘core’ muscles that stabilise and support the spine. You can correct this with Arnhem Physiotherapy’s Better Back Program! It is a structured, individualised, research based program aimed at restoring mobility, core stability, strength, general fitness and well-being.
The program runs over an 8 week period, with twice weekly sessions for 4 weeks followed by once weekly sessions for 4 weeks. All sessions are 1 on 1 with the physiotherapist.
This comprehensive program begins with a detailed 1 hour initial examination, followed by the implementation of a structured treatment exercise treatment and rehabilitation program, broken into 4 distinct stages:
- Alignment/Cardiovascular fitness: Flexibility, range of motion and general fitness.
- Inner Unit/Cardiovascular Fitness: Inner core muscle control and general fitness.
- Outer Unit/Cardiovascular Fitness: Large muscle groups, more advanced exercises and more specific fitness.
- Maintenance/Athletic: More advanced program tailored around sport and work requirements.
Typically the consultation session will involve a 10 minute warm up 30 minutes of specific one on one consultation with your Physiotherapist, followed by 20-30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise consisting of exercise cycle/treadmill etc.
The program involves a commitment to attend sessions twice each week at your preferred time for a period of 4 weeks, followed by once per week for 4 weeks.
No Lock-In Contracts:
There are no lock-in contracts so the program can be suspended at any time if you are going on holidays or unable to attend for a short time – a home exercise program will be given to you from week 1 to ensure continued success.
Private health fund rebates are available for all consultations
