Back Fit Class – we’ve got your back!
What is Back Fit Class?
According to NICE guidelines, exercise is essential in prevention and treatment of back pain. While this is true, we often feel anxious about exercising due to fear of aggravating pain. This, however, results in increased pain, disability and decreased function. At Freedom Care Clinics, we are offering Back Fit classes in which we have incorporated scientifically designed, safe and enjoyable exercise plans to re-establish normal and natural movement of the spine and posture. This enables strengthening, stretching, and muscle re-education of muscles of the back.
How does Back Fit class work?
Stretching and strengthening spinal muscles will provide support for your vertebrae, joints of your spine and intervertebral disks. These structures are commonly found to be pain causing structures in patients suffering with lower back pain. Back fit class will help to provide you with a solid foundation to support your spine for years to come.
What to expect from back fit class?
Back fit class is ran by our expert clinicians within the professional L1 performance gym facility. There are a limited number of spaces available for each class which helps us to ensure your safety through close supervision.
