It is important to have an understanding of the ‘core’ muscles and their function in core stability.
The ‘Core’ muscles develop what we call the powerhouse, essentially consisting of a ‘box’ of muscles. Ensuring correct posture is executed during exercises and movements will assist in strengthening core muscles.
Exercise; specifically core exercises are often a forgotten or misunderstood treatment for lower back pain. These muscles support and brace the spine during movement. Therefore, strengthening them can help to prevent further flare ups and allow distal muscles like the hamstrings, to work more efficiently.
The day to day use of technology, often spending hours hunching over, slouching down and excessively flexing your neck can cause both damage and deterioration of the spine. Chin Tucks are perfect for specifically targeting the muscles in your neck which assists in reversing the damage while improving both stability and functional strength.

Spinal Workshops help you understand the most common spinal problems. And some of the tricky stuff like disc injuries, hip replacements, back operations and fusion.
In these Workshops we provide simple, practical ways to prevent further injury and decrease your recovery time.
We consider them essential for all new patients to attend, otherwise you may never really understand how we can help you achieve the best possible results.
Also, Spinal Workshops are a great introduction to the practice for those who are interested in what we are doing or considering care.
Learn the common mechanisms of spinal injury. Learn how to prevent the most common new patient mistakes and avoid a needless relapse.
