The path to a healthy, pain free back.

A back related fitness programme - that’s what you need!

That’s the answer my clients get when they ask: “So, how can I prevent my back and neck pain from re-occurring?” They have experienced (often excruciating) back and neck pain, been through the mobility treatments - and now want to make sure that they stay pain-free in the future.

The key to the prevention of back and neck pain is a balanced fitness programme. The majority of back pain patients that I see are either quite unfit OR they focus too much attention on one aspect of fitness rather than taking a balanced approach to all the various aspects required for overall fitness.

This section looks at what a health related fitness program to maintain a healthy back looks like, and what you can do to maintain a pain free back into the long term.
