Read about examples of the types of conditions we see in our Studio

Clinical Movement Classes after Spinal Surgery

We commonly see clients who have undergone spinal surgery who join our classes to help them recover. An example of such a program may include specific retraining for returning to cycling and strengthening of the muscles that become deconditioned due to the injury.  Our physiotherapists often expect our clients to invest 6-8 months of solid work into the studio in order to maximise the chance of getting sustainable functional changes. 

Strength and Conditioning following an adductor strain in a footballer

Another example of a typical client who we see in the studio may be a footballer with a past history of back pain goes on to develop an adductor strain.  Strength and Conditioning training can be useful to improve glut strength, core strength and spine mobility, with a view to further strengthening to improve performance and speed in football. 

Clinical Movement Classes for a Triathlete

We see clients who are triathletes who seek our services to address pain which can affect running, cycling, swimming and overall race performance. Our approach in the Clinical Movement Classes would be to address biomechanics to restore optimal movement specifically related to the leg of the triathlon that causes issues. The Runner’s Strength class is also a great way to progress the movements learnt in Clinical Movement Classes.

Clinical Movenent Classes for Headaches

We commonly see clients who suffer from cervicogenic headaches in our studio. It is common that these clients have used hands-on physiotherapy treatment for a long time to manage headaches with only temporary relief. Combining the stretching, spinal mobilisation and strengthening of the Clinical Movement Classes with hands-on physiotherapy allows a two-pronged approach to improving headaches.
 

Clinical Movement Classes and Therapeutic Yoga for Chronic Pain and Stress

In the studio, we commonly see clients with widespread pain across multiple areas of the body and an intolerance to sitting or the prolonged postures required for desk work. Using a combination of Clinical Movement Classes to learn and strength the postural muscles, plus yoga for mindfulness and self awareness can provide additional support to other forms of pain management.

Clinical Movement, Therapeutic Yoga and Strength and Conditioning for Chronic Lower Back Pain

Clients with Chronic Lower Back pain can use our clinical movement, therapeutic yoga and strength and conditioning classes to address deconditioning, pain and weakness which can be the cause of, and perpetutate back pain. The classes can help to give the confidence to move more freely in daily activities such as bending over, reaching, and lifting and can help in returning back to previously painful physical activities.

Clinical Pregnancy Classes for Pelvic Joint Pain

A common presentation we would see in pregnancy is a client who is 20 weeks pregnant and experiences right sided pelvic pain while walking to work. Pelvic joint pain or sacroiliac joint dysfunction often presents with glut and core weakness that can be exacerbated by the growing belly and inactivity due to the pregnancy itself. We use real-time ultrasound and Clinical Pregnancy Classes to address glut and pelvic floor strength, correct and maintain standing posture and improve the experience of pregnancy which is aimed at allowing pregnant clients to maintain fitness during pregnancy, right up to delivery.

Clinical Movement Classes for a Workplace RSI Injury

We often see clients who have experienced RSI pain caused by repetitive desk-based tasks.  It is not uncommon that clients with RSI are required to take time off work, and so the improvement in posture and strength that can be seen through the Clinical Movement Classes is valuable in not only relieving pain but maintaining other elements of working life.
