Healthy Back Program

Healthy Back On-Line Exercise Series – Safe exercises for your back

One of the challenges in this pandemic has been to stay fit, particularly when you have pain or injuries. Your therapists at The Orthopaedic Therapy Clinic recognized how difficult this has been for our clients and have been working on a number of initiatives to help you to exercise safely.

We know that many of you are selecting on-line programs. Some of these programs are confusing and most are not back specific. We would like our clients to exercise with people who understand how to get you stronger through exercise and to limit your risk for low back pain.

We are excited by your interest in our live Healthy Back online back series. Resuming in October, we are offering 2 new on-line classes each week for people who have experienced low back pain when they exercise.

Who should participate?

These classes will be suitable for most backs as each exercise will be completed in a spinal neutral posture. If your back is a bit more particular about its directional preference, you can still participate as each exercise will also include a reminder of a modification for flexion or extension preference.

Who’s teaching?

Your classes will be led by one of The Orthopaedic Therapy Clinic’s exercise professionals.

Aniela Amio, Pilates/Yoga instructor and

John Gray, Registered Kinesiologist.

Both have extensive experience in helping people who have back pain to exercise safely.

 

Class format

Technique is critical to getting the most out of these classes with the least amount of discomfort. To help this work for you we have enhanced our use of technology to allow us to provide more immediate feedback. Now if anyone wants immediate feedback, just leave your video live and the instructor will correct any concerns with your technique.

Sessions will be limited to 8-10 participants. A minimum of 8 is needed to host the class.
