What is involved in the Better Back Programme…?

This comprehensive program involves a detailed 1 hour initial assessment followed by the implementation of a structured exercise and rehabilitation program. The program is broken into 4 distinct stages:

1 – Alignment / CV Fitness: flexibility, range of motion and general fitness.

2 – Inner Unit / CV Fitness: inner core muscle control and general fitness.

3 – Outer Unit / CV Fitness: larger muscle groups, more advanced exercises and more specific fitness.

4 – Maintenance / Athletic: more advanced program to allow return to sport and work situations.

What will happen at a typical sessions…?

A typical consultation session will involve 30 minutes of specific one-on-one supervision by the therapist followed by 20-30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise using state of the art equipment

Your Commitment:

The program involves a commitment from you to attend sessions 2-3 times each week for a minimum of 4 weeks, and be prepared to contribute to your recovery, whilst being supported and guided every step of the way.

No Lock-in Contracts!

There are no lock in contracts so you can suspend the program at any time should you be going on holidays or are unable to attend for a short period – a home exercise program will be given to ensure continued success.

What does the Programme Cost?

• Initial Assessment and Program Design (1 hour)     £97

• Treatment / Exercise Consultation Sessions (30-60mins plus CV time) £35.  We do not deliberately have a set length of time because we need to achieve certain objectives at each session, so if we over run slightly, it is important that we hit those goals to get the improvements you require.

Private health fund rebates are available for all consults. Insurance patients are billed directly to the insurer.
