What do the classes involve
The BACK to Life program consists of 8 classes and require an individual assessment by our physiotherapist prior to starting to fully understand your condition, short and long term goals and identify current levels pre- program. The classes run weekly, you can start at any time and it is suited to all levels of ability and fitness. Importantly it works on the principles of individually progressing exercises within pain limits. Strengthening the main muscle groups including the abdominal and trunk muscles, stretching the main muscle groups and increasing cardiovascular fitness with low impact aerobic exercise.
We understand that getting started with an exercise program can seem challenging, especially when you are starting exercise after an extended period of inactivity or whilst also trying to manage other health conditions. To make this an easy starting point our classes are pay as you go, no need to pay in advance for classes you cant attend. However we do have a strict 2 business days cancellation policy as our numbers are strictly limited to 5 in each class.

We also educate you with regard to how to look after your spine and reduce the risk of developing back pain. Being supervised will help you correctly perform your individual program exercises.
