How is getback different from other back pain treatments?
getback Head of Exercise Physiology Adam Cabble explains how exercise based therapy is changing the way chronic back and neck pain is treated.
How we treat back pain
getback uses medically-registered rehabilitation devices to safely increase the strength and flexibility of the deep spinal muscles that stabilise and support the spine. The devices are designed by Biomechanists and Exercise Scientists to precisely target and rebuild the deep spinal muscles.
Spinal health you can see
getback™ devices are designed to safely control loading and guide every movement during your individual treatment plan. The devices provide continual feedback to ensure you’re exercising within the prescribed safe range, and measure your strength and mobility for review with our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.
