Are you fed up of back pain?

Reduce back pain for good

Is your back holding you back from doing the things you want to do? Perhaps you’ve tried everything and the pain keeps coming back? You may be in the majority of back pain sufferers who have weak muscles of the low back and core.

Through specialist strengthening and rehabilitation programmes, we can help give you the confidence to enjoy activity without worrying about your back going.

Come to a complimentary consultation and learn how to get stronger and move more freely.


Who do your treatments work for?

We work with a wide variety of people with varying degrees of pain. Generally speaking, we help anyone who has been experiencing low back pain for more than 6 weeks.

Clients who have been diagnosed have come to us with conditions such as bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis to name a few. The programme isn’t suitable if you are less than 6 weeks post-surgery but we can certainly help you after that period.

What makes you different from other back pain specialists?

Our programmes use specialist equipment which is the only of it’s kind to isolate the muscles in the low back. This means we can achieve true strengthening of the back and core. These MedX machines are widely used in the USA and by specialist practitioners on Harley Street, and we are the only practice in the South-West to use the technology.

Rather than just treat your back, we look at your body as a whole and establish movement patterns, which may contribute to your pain. This means by becoming stronger and moving better, you are less vulnerable to pain long-term.

Finally, we work one-to-one with you throughout your programme. We understand that it can be scary when you are putting your trust in someone when you’re in pain and work hard to create comfortable, open sessions and love that our clients enjoy coming in for their seasons.

How do the programmes work?

Based on extensive research, MedX protocol states that 12 weekly sessions are optimal for both recovery and long-term pain relief.

Using this protocol, we usually advise a minimum of 1 x 60-minute session a week for 12 weeks, then a continuation onto a maintenance programme of one session a month to retain the strength built.

What happens during a session?

Sessions last an hour, and we start with a warm-up and mobiliser in the MedX machine then stretch and move on to a full set of exercise in the machine. Then, depending on your pain and areas we need to work on, we’ll do some functional exercise to work the rest of your body, core strength work and possible massage if you need it.

We then finish with another light session in the machine and finally some more flexibility.

Can I meet you and see if it’s suitable before I commit?

Yes, we do a full consultation before you undertake any programme. This assesses where you are now, your suitability for the treatment and gives us both an opportunity to discuss what’s happening in terms of your pain.
