Back Care & Rehabilitation
Caring for your back to prevent injury is so important when it comes to your health. From lifting correctly to maintaining posture and maintaining flexibility, each are key components to having a healthy back. If you are recovering from back injury or back pain, step by step progression is vital to improvement and ultimately overcoming your pain.
20% of Australians suffer from chronic back pain and live with pain constantly throughout their lives.
Optimum Back Care Goals
Out initial consultation will stablish the level of assistance you need to address these four areas and look to manage your back care or rehabilitation:
It is important to activate the back’s natural brace. Strengthening through this anatomical brace creates stability through pelvis and vertebral column.
It is important to eliminate any postural imbalances. Poor posture creates overloads and weaknesses through the kinetic chain. Over time, this continual stress leads to injuries. Similarly, correcting posture enables these same weaknesses and overloads to be correct – therefore removing these stresses from the kinetic chain, hence eliminating the pain.
This is the ability to maintain control of the pelvis. Many people don’t have strength in the appropriate pelvic muscles to maintain a neutral, stable pelvic position. We will explain the relationship between pelvic control and the pain you may be feeling.
Stretching & flexibility
Poor flexibility and muscle tightness are bi-products of society today, resulting from continual sitting. Muscle tightness places stress through your kinetic chain, adding to the pain that you are feeling. Knowing how to improve functional movement as well as flexibility will enable you to achieve a pain free range of movement to enable your condition to recover.
