You have ongoing pain in your lower back, and specific movements or doing specific tasks make the pain worse.
You are unable do some of the most simple things without pain, like sitting and standing for long periods.
Pain is preventing you from being as active as you’d like to be.
You’re fed up of being in pain and worried you’ll never get back to normal.
You’ve probably tried pain killers, but they haven’t really helped. You may have already sought professional help, but that hasn’t really helped either and you don’t know where to turn.
You’re tired of short term symptom relief, and you just want to get back to having a fully functioning body that feels good.
What would help you right now, is to understand the root cause of your back pain, rather than continuing to try to mask the symptoms with pain killers and anti-inflammatories to get you through the day.
You need help understanding how factors such posture, biomechanics, core function, ergonomics, muscular strength, nutrition, gut health, stress, hormonal status, rest and sleep could have played a role in causing your injury in the first place and how these factors will be crucial in the proper healing process of the injured tissues.
You need someone who can advise, motivate and support you every step of the way, someone who understands what is required to create the conditions for healing and has taught many others to do the same.
I will help you understand the root causes of your back injury and teach you how to approach the condition holistically via expert advice on posture correction, exercise, nutrition and lifestyle factors.
The program package will start by assessing your posture and biomechanics, then by setting out a corrective exercise programme to improve posture and core stability, whilst ensuring you also take care of other essential factors, such as hydration, nutrition, sleep and rest.
We will go on a journey, step by step empowering you to take charge of your exercise, nutrition and lifestyle plan. The regularity in which you see me will depend on the complexity of your case, how long you’ve been injured, your exercise training history, and how much improvement you need to make around nutrition and lifestyle factors.
Once you begin to learn how to move your body correctly, and start to improve posture and core stability, along with the appropriate lifestyle changes, you will begin to see changes in how well you can move and a reduction in your pain.
You will progress through 3 stages starting with a Corrective Exercise Phase, then when ready, to a Transition Phase, and then finally a Specificity Phase. The phases are carefully managed to ensure the exercise programme doesn’t progress too quickly and cause a re-injury to the injured tissues.
This staged approach ensures a strong conditioning base is developed before adding strength and then specific strength (and possibly power if required) to ensure you are conditioned well enough to do whatever you wish to do, whilst being strong and robust enough to not become re-injured.
