Back Care and Swiss Ball with Susan Knight

Back Care Class: Tuesdays 1:00-2:00 PM and Thursdays 11:00-noon/ Swiss Ball Class Thursdays 6:30-7:30PM

Back Care is a class open to everyone, but is especially dedicated to helping people appreciate the benefits of postural alignment and trunk and core stability. As well as to teach individuals the importance of proper body mechanics. 

It offers a progressive program of exercises designed to target and reduce acute or chronic back pain by way of strengthening core abdominal muscles, stretching soft tissue structures, and correcting posture. 

This is a truly unique class that should be a continuation of your physiotherapy treatment. It is a post-physiotherapy approach to help support the rehabilitation process and a preventative measure to limit future back pain recurrence. 

Come and learn core muscle awareness in various functional positions; standing, seated, on your back and on your tummy. These training principles can be easily incorporated in, and will immediately better, your every day lives. 

Individuals experiencing highly acute or exceedingly irritated back pain should be evaluated and given consent by a Physiotherapist or Doctor before participating. Please mention to Susan before the class begins your history of any prior treatment for back pain.
