SPINE-ER-CISE!

October 7, 2016

Garett brings the Spine-ercise concept to Dublin from his experience as a physiotherapist in Sydney. It is unique to Physiofusion in Dublin, and we are delighted to have a new and dynamic approach to back care which empowers the patient through a combination of education and exercise therapy.

The course is run over a four week period, with each class having a different focus in line with the client’s expanding knowledge of the biomechanics of the spine and the physiology of back function and dysfunction. The four key pillars are:

 

  • Introduction to the Spine – brief anatomy and biomechanics

  • The role of investigations – interpreting X-ray and MRI reports

  • Exercise therapy for core strength – the abdominals and spine

  • Exercise therapy for lengthening and release

 

Anatomy & Biomechanics

 

Most people, including those with back pain, have very little knowledge of how the spine functions. In order to understand what causes ‘dysfunction’, Garett will take the group through an introduction to the anatomy of the spine, and explain common causes and conditions which can lead to back pain.

 

Investigations: X-Rays and MRIs

 

Did you know that 80% of the population can show signs of ‘disc bulging’ on MRI but most of these will have no back pain?

So why do some people experience back pain from ‘bulging discs’ and others not?

MRIs are now common place in the diagnosis and management of back pain, and it can be distressing to hear that you have ‘degenerative change’, ‘bulging discs’ or ‘loss of disc height’ on your MRI report. This course will explain the role of MRIs in the management of back pain and help to allay fears which may have set in following an MRI of the neck or back.

 

Exercise

 

Physiotherapists are experts in movement and exercise prescription. Garett will lead the group through a series of core strengthening, and back and hip stretching exercises. The aim of these exercises is to re-educate normal movement and empower the participants to move with confidence.

Try Spine-ercise at Physiofusion – your back will thank you for it!
