Low Back Pain

Low back pain is one of the most common injuries a person can experience during their lifetime. Roughly 80% of people will experience low back pain at least once in their life. The vast majority of people (up to 90%) who experience low back pain will recover. However, the likelihood of recurrence is increased.

Immobilised after surgery? Here’s how to stay strong!

Following certain injuries or procedures it is important to undergo a period of immobilisation to ensure proper healing of the affected structures.

You could be stuck in a cast, boot, splint or brace for weeks or even months. During this period of immobilisation, everything is healing steadily but the unfortunate consequence is loss of range of motion and reduced muscle strength.
