Low Back Pain Specialist
More than 80% of the adult population suffer from low back pain at some time in their life. It is one of the most common reasons why people take time off work, and may be distressing and frustrating as quality of life often suffers.
Yet gentle, effective exercise, delivered by a properly trained exercise professional, can often help with the prevention and management of low back pain. This was underlined by the publication in 2009 of medical guidelines recommending that people with persistent non-specific low back pain should be encouraged to stay physically active and exercise.
I am a fully qualified Back4Good® Practitioner, we are exercise specialists who are trained to help people with non-specific low back pain. I undertook extensive training exclusively related to exercise referral and low back pain to become a Back4Good® Practitioner and a Level 4 Advanced Exercise Instructor.
Hypermobility is where an individual’s joints move beyond the normal range taking into consideration age, gender and ethnicity
Pilates has been shown to be one of the best forms of exercise for those experiencing problems with Hypermobility and Elhers Danlos Syndrome. Its gentle nature means it can be performed with control and at a low level, building back strength, endurance and coordination often lost through these conditions.
