How is getback different from other back pain treatments?

We all understand back pain is very common – everyone knows someone who suffers from a ‘bad back’. Many of us have at least one episode of back pain in our lives, while sadly, some have chronic back pain.

Back pain can be painful, debilitating and frustrating. What’s added to our frustration in the past has been the lack of specific and targeted treatment for back and neck pain.

Some back pain sufferers look to build strength around the affected areas. But how do we ensure we’re targeting the right muscles and not overloading painful areas? And how do you effectively measure the impact of training on back pain?

The first – and very important – difference about the getback rehabilitation program is that it’s designed solely and specifically to treat back and neck pain.

getback is a rehabilitation program designed to promote back health by safely increasing the strength and flexibility of the deep muscles that stabilise and support the spine. getback rehabilitation devices don’t randomly build muscle strength. They are precisely designed by Biomechanists and Exercise Physiologists to target and rebuild the deep spinal muscles.

getbackclinics are staffed at all times by Physiotherapists and Accredited Exercise Physiologists, who are dedicated to providing patients with a measurable pathway to spinal health.

In your Initial Consultation, the devices measure the strength and weakness of your deep spinal muscles (the multifidus) and range of movement. A tailored getback program then isolates and targets any injured or weakened deep spinal muscles, gradually and precisely increasing their strength and range of motion.

Most importantly, the getback devices precisely control load through the full range of every exercise, based on each patient’s recorded strength data and pain profile. This ensures that your exercise is fully supported and safe at all times.

You might ask why the deep spinal muscles are so important in treating back pain? Attached to both sides of the spine and along its length, these small but powerful muscles play an extremely important role in the health and stability of the spine. The deep spinal muscles support the individual vertebra as they move in our everyday movements, such as bending sideways, backwards and rotating our body.

When the deep spinal muscles are healthy and strong, they automatically activate in preparation for movement, stabilising the spine and protecting it from excessive range of motion. When they are weakened due to inactivity or pain, this loss of stabilising protection can result in pain and muscular spasm in order to protect the area.

While weakness in the deep spinal muscles can lead to spinal instability, strengthening them helps to support the spine and reduce back pain.

Data on your strength and range of movement is captured and recorded by the devices during each treatment. As a patient, it’s highly motivating to see how your spinal health and stability is improving with each treatment.

getbacktreatment programs have a defined end point. Results from your Initial Consultation are compared with age and gender benchmarks. You begin with a clear, measurable target to get back to your normal strength and mobility and you can track your progress to a defined finish line.

Our clinical experience tells us that between 18 – 24 visits will effectively treat and rehabilitate the musculature of your spine.
