Back Pain and Core Rehab programme – How will it help me?
You can stop your cycle of pain with the help of our back pain and core rehab programme. We know that many of our patients suffer from back pain or other problems due to abnormal movement patterns. This programme will help us to help you tackle the underlying cause of your pain by helping you to re-train your body to move in the way it was designed to move and stop any detrimental movement habits that have led to your pain.
This programme is a great way to get you moving well more quickly and will help you to remember ‘how’ to properly perform your exercises. This is a safe way to add controlled movement and exercise to your life.

Enable you to manage your back problem independently
To achieve these objectives you must:
Want to regain control of your life by applying self-management skills through individual and group activities

Be motivated to attend all sessions and put in the effort to achieve your goals
Persistent back pain is not a quick fix. Feeling better comes with consistency.
The longer back pain persists or goes untreated, the longer it takes to get rid of. It’s not just going to solve itself right away by doing a few stretches a few times a week, you need to be consistent.
Here at Philgood rehabilitation we aim to create a change in your back pain. However, it is then up to you to keep that change, through commitment and exercise.
To help you comply with your exercise, we have developed a back care programme where you can have one to one sessions with our injury specialist. During the session we can identify any abnormalities in your exercises and help you complete them safely and efficiently. We will be right by your side for you to ask an questions along the way.
In our safe hands we can guide you through each progression, or regression, to ensure you are doing the right movement for your ability. Our knowledge allows us to find the underlying cause of your back pain to create prehabilitation programmes as well as rehabilitation.
It’s important for you to have a mindset of ‘I need to build in time in my day to take care of this and do things I know are going to help with this pain,’ not just taking a pill or an injection or having a surgery.
Moving and adjusting throughout the day is important. Sitting and standing aren’t the only options. Spend time in a kneeling or half-kneeling position. You should build up slowly, though, with two to five minutes in a new position until you’re comfortable with it. This will help to avoid back pain caused by standing or sitting too long.
