We helped Emma get back to training after years of back pain

Back pain is a common condition and can often be a reason people let their training program fall by the wayside.

Back pain can come in many forms – sciatica, arthritis and trapped nerves are just a few but as always, correct diagnosis is the essential first step.

Once the pain has been correctly diagnosed it’s then possible to enter an effective rehabilitation program.

One of the common labels for back pain is NSLBP or  Non-Specific Lower Back Pain. This is basically a description of back pain, not associated with any known injury, condition or pathology.

If you have been told you have NSLBP by your health professional you will probably have been given some appropriate exercises to do at home to get things back on track.

Exercising With Back Pain

So what about exercise?

Obviously this depends on the level of your pain, what you have been told by your health professional and where you are in your rehabilitation but as far as the research goes on back pain, movement is generally a good idea and staying still for long periods of time is generally a bad idea.

It may also be a good idea to seek the help of a movement specialist to help you get back to exercising safely – this is were we come in.

After gathering all of your relevant information we then assess you moving to observe the movements you can do well and the movements you don’t do so well.

Once we have an idea of your limitations we then work with you using movements that you are comfortable with, building your confidence in your ability to move.

Our unique way of working with you will help you develop skills using movements that you want to be better at, and that will help you do the things you want to do.Always working in your comfort zone, we build a progressive program of movement for you to help you get back to training.

If you’re returning to training after injury there may well be some specific movement combinations that you’ll need to avoid, at least in the short-term. We’ll feed this information into your program and make sure you avoid any problematic movements while at the same time progressing your movement around it.

This is the very process we used to help Jo get back to training after a back injury…

jo“After 5 months off due to a fractured L5/S1 I sought Pete’s help for some form of help/rehabilitation training.

Had a 90-minute session with Pete today and he had me walking pain free by the end of the session. This has NOT happened in 5 months and I’m elated and very impressed.

Pete was very knowledgeable and even took the time to explain the technicalities to my PT and in simpler terms for me.”
